I'm sorry, but I do not have any information on what the total number is, due to the fact that it is actually very dynamic. It can change, at any given time, as new medications are approved, old ones are discontinued and new generics become available.

Are there any other questions or comments?

I understand that the list changes frequently. I would like to know the approximate number of drugs on the list.

Verwon Says:

Bruce, you can research the top 200, as Donna suggested. That list shows the most commonly prescribed.

However, as I said, there is no real total, or approximation to give otherwise. There are literally thousands of medications available.

Is there anything I can help with?
