Figure 2: Patterns of pharmaceutical use in this study. The ten most common medication groups in this study, listed from the most common to the least common, are as follows: NPMa = neuro-psychiatric medications – antidepressants, antipsychotics, anxiolytics, antiepileptic medications, agents used for Alzheimer's disease, anti-Parkinsonian agents; APA/ACAb = antiplatelet agents/anticoagulant agents; cardiac = beta-adrenergic blockers, calcium channel blockers, antiarrhythmics, digoxin, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers; GIc = gastrointestinal agents – H2 blockers, proton pump inhibitors, bowel activity modulators; L/CLAd = lipid/cholesterol lowering agents; opioids; HRe = hormonal replacement – thyroid hormone, estrogen, other endocrine replacement regimens; glycemic agents – both enteral and parenteral; corticosteroids – regularly scheduled steroid therapy
