In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen.
Amoxil is also call Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.


The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer.

It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one! Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink".
Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of: MOUNT & DO.

Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

If you don't send this to five old friends right away there will be five fewer people laughing in the world.

This should have been in the Humor section. It did make me laugh, though.

Ah! I always wondered why Americans have Advil and we don't- I didn't realise it was plain old Ibuprofen.

I realize it's a joke, but just for the record the generic name for Viagra® is sildenafil citrate.

And, for what it's worth, Aspirin's generic name is acetylsalic acid, or ASA.

That should be acetylsalicylic acid.

Also, a more proper term would be "Chemical" name rather than generic name, since "Aspirin" has become generic since Bayer lost it.

By the way, here's another one :

Pfizer will soon release a brand new drug : it's a mix between the active substances of Viagra and Xanax.

What are the effects of the new product ?

You don't get a hard-on, but you don't give a damn either.

There's also a new one that's a mix between Viagra and Metamucil. They're going to market it under the name "Easy Come, Easy Go."
