Don't load all the data upfront like this. Send your filter to the server to request results, but don't load them all at once. I would present the top 20 or so (depending on how much screen space you want to devote to this) results from the set in the drug list, essentially around double what will be visible to the user without scrolling. Then write some ...

I can't imagine any scenario where a user would benefit from scrolling manually through a list of 8000 items. As such, I don't think a list is the best default UI element to use here.

I agree that having this inconsistent will be a problem. If you want the site to be navigable by tabbing, you need to have the same order on each page. As a user, I wouldn't mind having to click on the first field of a form to start it quickly, as long as the tabbing works correctly after that within the form. Many sites don't even get that much right.
