Uncertain about brand names and common names?
All medications have both common (generic) and brand names. The brand name is the name under which a specific manufacturer markets a product (e.g., Tylenol®). The common name is the standard name of the medicine (e.g., acetaminophen). The label on your medicine will state the brand name, common name, or both. It will also give important dosage information.
