Top 200 Drug eFlashcards
Memorize the top 200 drugs for the PTCB or ExCPT exam using our up to date flashcards!
Most of the medications dispensed by pharmacies in the United States appear on the list of the top 200 drugs. Consequently, memorization of the top 200 drugs, including brand names, generic names, indications, and controlled substance schedules (when applicable), is widely used as a starting point when training new pharmacy technicians. Memorization of the top 200 drugs is also a critical step in preparing for the pharmacy technician certification exam (i.e., the PTCB or ExCPT exam).
When searching the internet for a list of the top 200 drugs, there are some important things to keep in mind.
#1 There is no official list of the top 200 drugs.
Since no official list exists, exercise caution when selecting a list to use in your studies. To ensure the accuracy of our list, we developed it by analyzing outpatient dispensing data from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, an official government agency affiliated with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
#2 Prescribing practices change over time and, consequently, so do the top 200 drugs.
With any list, there is a delay between data collection and list creation/publication. Nonetheless, when preparing for the PTCB or ExCPT exam, your list of the top 200 drugs mustn't be outdated. We recommend using the most current list available. Our list was developed for the year 2020, using the most recent data available from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
#3 The criteria used to develop a list of the top 200 drugs may vary widely from one list to another.
A list of the top 200 drugs may be based on anything from internet search volume to sales revenue to the number of prescriptions dispensed. Our list, based on the number of prescriptions dispensed, provides the most relevant review of the top 200 drugs that are likely to be encountered in a pharmacy.
