Drugs can be known by a chemical name, a generic name, and a brand name.
eg. (2S,5R,6R)-6- [[(2R)-2-amino-2- (4-hydroxyphenyl)acetyl]amino]- 3,3-dimethyl-7-oxo-4- thia-1- azabicyclo[3.2.0] heptane-2-carboxylic acid.
|Chemical Name||Generic Name||Brand Name|
|4-hydroxy-3 -(3-oxo-1-phenylbutyl) coumarin||Warfarin sodium||Coumadin tablets|
|erythromycin 2'-(ethylsuccinate)||Erythromycin||EES tablets|
When searching for information on a medicine, it's best to use the generic name, or possibly the brand name if you need information on the specific formulation.
You can use synonyms (alternative terms) when searching. For example, you might want to search for the generic name OR the brand name. You can combine search terms with the OR operator to get results for one or the other.
eg: paracetamol OR acetaminophen OR panadol OR tylenol
