  • Overview

    The average life span has consistently increased over the past decades, or even century, due to huge advances in overall health care, but with particular attention to medicinal breakthroughs. Year after year, more and more medications are developed and marketed to become some of the most famous medications of all time. In this presentation, we will take a step back, and review what can be considered the most influential medications ever. Some medications can be debated as to having either a positive or negative affect on society, culture, and healthcare, but regardless, many medications have either been the "blockbuster" medication or have paved the way for future paradigm shifting medications. We will discuss the history of the significance and innovation for each medication, its unique development timeline and history, and its impact on society as a whole, while also of course touching on some patient counseling relevant information for each medication along the way. So before we begin, what medications would you say are the most influential of all time?
