Oh No #20

Strolling round the chemists I see that if you’re suffering a bout of excessive flatulence “Windeeze” could help.
This prompted me to think that in Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, Panadol has a generic name of Paracetamol. Amoxil is also called Amoxicillin and Nurofen is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been seeking a generic name for Viagra. After deliberation by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has adopted the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered we’re informed were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin
