Can anyone recommend a good book with a list of pharmaceuticals by name, their uses, and drug interactions?

something you would want to have after SHTF and you have the opportunity to scavenge an abandoned pharmacy but ya need to know what is what as well as possible off label uses (a bonus) for some drugs since substitutes may be needed as the good stuff goes first. I know the basics like almost all antibiotics, benzos, antiepileptics, pain medications, and most of your common basic household prescription medications etc but would like to have some kind of reference guide, but especially a very comprehensive one that could list major drug interactions, and alternate medications etc.

'Nursing Drug Handbook' is generally considered the bible for that sort of thing. Most of the survival medical books like 'The Survival Medicine Handbook' and 'Where There is No Doctor' also contain some good info.

I'd rather read any of the nursing drug books but the the physicians desk reference is probably the most comprehensive. Medical books are upgraded frequently and old editions can be picked up cheap or even free as they are often discarded and replaced.
