There are many prescriptions sold across the United States for a variety of reasons. They may range from chronic and acute conditions to the common cold. There have been surveys conducted on which prescriptions are commonly sold in which States and why they are prescribed so much in that area. Leading the list is Amlodipine (Norvasc), which is commonly prescribed in Louisiana and Mississippi, probably because high blood pressure is particularly prevalent in the South. This drug may be used to treat angina — chest pain caused by a reduced blood supply to the heart. The next most common drug is Amoxicillin (Amoxil), a penicillin-like antibiotic that is used to treat bacterial infections and is most common in the states of California, Illinois, Missouri, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah.
