According to this article, of the top five classes of drugs prescribed in America, I get #1, #2, and #4.
I actually used to take three specific meds in that #1 class, statins. In more recent years, I’ve been placed on a combination drug that contains one statin and one other drug. These are all meant to combat high cholesterol … I take another drug besides the combo one, so I’m getting quite a handful in my quest to lower those cholesterol numbers.

At least I’m a member of Kaiser, so I don’t spend much on my meds. God help the person without health insurance.
