Does any one know a good web site for figuring out US medications?
I was reading a thread on the CCU page, and keep finding that I have to try googling the drugs, to find their 'official' names. Just so I can understand the disscussion
I know that in the UK, that there have been problems making the switch from British standard names, to European, but throwing in American brand names seem to make it more difficult.
I had no idea Glucophage was actually metformin! and some others I need to google later.
So... I just wondered if there was a sticky thread anywhere with a list of US names and UK names, or any one had any web sites.
If there isn't a sticky thread, could we arrange one? I'm sure it would be a great resource, and if we all put our heads together it wouldn't take long to make a helpful list (obviously not the size of the BNF) but large enough to help people naviagate the discussion on these boards?
