The 50 Most Commonly Prescribed Drugs in America and Their Average Price #infographic

Most Americans spend hundreds of dollars out of pocket for life-saving prescription medications every single month. Any of those common medications may have insane costs even with decent health insurance coverage. Knew you that Lipitor, America's second most commonly prescribed drug, has an estimated cost of $218.51? That price point might not even be possible for people without health insurance, leaving many without the prescription medicine they need to lead healthier lives. A recent DrugReport report details the average cost of the 50 most popular prescription drugs in America, and the findings are astounding.

Although some widely prescribed medications, such as acetaminophen and aspirin, have price points that are acceptable, others are unreasonably high. What's more, many of these prescription drugs are required for people with serious health problems. Without sufficient health insurance or income, having such prescription drugs can lead to financial hardship.
