Top Psych Druggers

This is a collection and compilation project of public records from each state showing the top prescribers of Medicaid paid antipsychotic drugs Abilify, Geodon, Risperdal, Seroquel, Zyprexa; anti-anxiety drug Xanax and pain killers OxyContin and Roxicodone. The drug name, the prescriber name, prescriber ID number, number of prescriptions and Medicaid dollars expended for each drug are being compiled. Most of the states promptly provided the requested records. Some have flat-out refused to provide the records. This is a work in progress. The information on this webpage is based on records obtained from state agencies. If you believe any of the information is incorrect, please contact us: records@PsychSearch.net.
