I'm sorry, but it is only January, so it doesn't seem the updated list for 2009 has been released, yet. I can only find listings of the flashcards that were for sale to study this list during 2009 and the list that used the sales/prescription data from 2008.

That said, here's that list:

Please note, the first number is sales ranking, the number in parentheses is how many spots it moved since the prior year, then the drug name, then the $ amount of retail sales and the percentage of change in the units sold since 2007.

Lipitor 5,880,128 -4.6%
