Is the generic name and Dilantin is a trade name for the same drug. When a drug is under patent protection, the company markets it under its trade name.

Government officials, doctors, researchers, and others who write about the new compound use the drug's generic name because it refers to the drug itself, not to a particular company's brand of the drug or a specific product. However, doctors often use the trade name on prescriptions, because it is easier to remember and doctors usually learn about new drugs by the trade name.

For example, Lopressor lowers blood pressure, Vivactil is an antidepressant that might make a person more vivacious, Glucotrol controls high blood sugar (glucose) levels, and Skelaxin relaxes skeletal muscles.

Including a trade name of such a drug in these tables does not indicate an endorsement or a preference for the trade name version over the generic version. With few exceptions, the trade names in these tables are limited to those marketed in the United States. These tables are by no means all-inclusive, and no effort has been made to list every trade name in current use for each drug. Many drugs are marketed almost exclusively under their generic name. The inclusion of a drug in these tables does not indicate approval of a drug's use, nor does it imply that a drug is effective or safe.

A second table follows, listing the trade names in alphabetic order along with their generic name.

which are the International Nonproprietary Names (INNs); and trade names, which are brand names. Generic names for drugs are nowadays constructed out.

In the 21st century, increasing globalization is encouraging maximal rationalization for new generic names for drugs, and there is an increasing expectation that new USANs, BANs, and JANs will not differ from new INNs without especial justification.
