|Tardenafil citrate overdose you suspect, Doctor?|
Either that or Tardalafil.
ETA - erm, sorry, medicines info is what I do for a day job
Really? Can you explain pharmaceutical nomenclature? Or do they just make up cool sounding names? I mean the generic names, not brand names.
That'd be a far more interesting read than the pissing contest with GI Joe.
The only drug I've been involved with that's made it to market was named in a cross department lottery. Everyone interested sent in a suggestion and there was a prize if your name was chosen (a bottle of something). However, there are name generating methods (these were a fallback in the case I mention) because they can't use words that actually mean anything in most languages. Unfortunately I don't know precisely how the generators work, I have enough to worry about making the damn things/getting them to work etc. Usually they're referred to as "that fucking COX2-inhibitor" or something similar. ;-)
