Top 200 drugs in the US - 2008

Jón T. Njarðarson's team at the University of Cornell has put together an interesting poster listing the top 200 pharmaceuticals used last year, ranked in order of sales dollars. Ostensibly there to "educate students about how chemistry positively impacts our lives" (debatable, I guess), it is a useful list because it gives the brand names, chemical structures, and general uses of these drugs we so commonly run in to in practice. A useful quick-reference (and an alarming amount of money spent).
