    can you remember the name of the last medicine you had?or was it too difficult to pronounce?or are you confusing it with another with a similar name?wouldn't it be nice if drug's names were palatable as very few of them?

      Medicine names are difficult sometimes. Are the names based on their components or what?

      You're a medical student? That's cool. What kind of medical area are you going into?

    My husband is disabled and on several different kinds of medication and I feel like I have had to learn a whole new language to speak to his Dr. and the Pharmacist.

      Thanks for your concern we are getting through it.
      Thank you also for your vocational choice. I know it is hard but quality medical professionals are always in demand and they do so much for so many.

    thanx guys for the support...
    yes legendary hero ,i am a medical student.right now i am studying to become a doctor. i dont have to choose any particular area right now.that i will choose when i go for masters.

    the names of medicines are based on different grounds. Which is the reason why they are confusing. I don't seem to get hold of the names at times. I have written a "just kiddin" hub on it.
    I am trying my best now so that i don't prescribe the wrong one to my patients later.      ;-)
    plz pray for me guys.for my patients too.who knows some of you might be the "unfortunate" ones.just kiddin...:-)

    Ha ha..good thought! However, if we can come up with some short forms and nick names for the most popular of medicines (like we had done for Mary-Jane if you know what I mean wink! )

    Btwn, you can also check some of my hubs on similar contemporary medical issues.
