Transparency: The Most Prescribed Psychiatric Drugs

May 13, 2010
Launch Infographic

The pharmaceutical industry spends a lot of money marketing their newest psychiatric drugs to Americans. And we take a lot of them. In fact, in 2009 alone, U.S. doctors wrote more psychiatric prescriptions than there are people in this country. This is a look at 2009's 10 most prescribed pyschiatric drugs (in both their brand-name and generic forms). Don't worry, there's a pill for that.

A collaboration between GOOD and Stanford Kay.
