It seems to me that at least every other week there is a new, oddly spelled drug on the market. Do the folks who create these ‘wonders of improved health’ have a reservoir of names from which to draw? Is it possible that big pharma has an ad agency, one its job it is to develop a source of names from which the various companies can make selections, depending upon the purpose of each new item. Or does each one have a linguistics specialist on the payroll.
Either way we all have to make a decision; do we take a risk with all the possible side effects that come with the ‘wonder’ drugs or just endure the problem each one is designed to cure, or at least ameliorate?
So far, the only drugs I take are Simvastatin, Tamsulosin and a memory drug, for which I can’t remember the name.
And so it is!
