How many prescription drugs are on the market in the USA? OTC + Prescription? In the world?

- prescription, otc
Way too many to sit and count them.
I would suggest the FDA website, at least for drugs in the US. It will be difficult to find about all the drugs available in the world.
Counted 6639 prescription + OTC from FDA site as of 10/16/2014. This includes current, waiting for approval, and discontinued drugs.
When I find out how many of those are only prescription, I will update. And also the data for the world.
