What basic medications do you keep on hand?

As I have been making my list of things to get as I am gettineg ready to set up my tank, I was wondering what type of medications would be good to keep on hand in case the need might arise. I am going to be ordering things online so I figured that adding some basic medications could be a cost effective idea, being able to get them for a better price than what they can be found for locally along with taking advantage of free shipping.

I now have Metro+ by Aquarium Solutions on hand, as it's great for adding to food in cases of internal protozoans, which can wipe out an entire tank if not treated quickly.
