Top 200 Medications 2022 for inpatient hospitals

Pharmacy Brain presents an exclusive inpatient hospital setting top 200 medications brand/generic list updated for 2022. To our knowledge no other site has this information; they all have the same top 200 outpatient/retail prescription sales list.

You can use this list for studying (NAPLEX, PTCB, NCLEX, etc.) or just to keep yourself up to date with what’s trending right now. Most practicing healthcare professionals haven’t looked at a list like this in years, maybe decades! It’s important to stay up to date. A lot has changed since you were in school.
