I don't entirely understand your question, but: there are usually people trying Kilimanjaro with all kinds of different levels of fitness. Coping with altitude is partly training, partly a good acclimatization plan and partly genetics. Generally speaking an average sporty people should be able to climb Kilimanjaro without problems.
If you are worrying about the dynamics of the group because of different fitness levels, than don't. There will be a guide or assistant-guide for each and one of you, so it is basically almost like you are climbing alone. You can any time keep your individual pace, without concern about the others. You will have 1 member of the staff right next to you, willing to help: take your rucksack, even drag you up until the summit if necessary. Kilimanjaro staff is mostly relying on the tips they get at the end, so they are willing to do almost anything for your success, because that guarantees their fat tip at the and.
About medicines: just take it easy and avoid if possible. Even aspirin and ibuprofen have serious side-effects. Your stomach will be put to the test anyways, so don't make it harder with drogs (medicines). Train before, walk slowly, drink a lot, eat when having appetite, rest between.
