    Default Drug names help

    Can anyone give me some suggestions or tips on researching drug names? I have exhausted my usual references to find these drug names, and I'm stumped. Can anyone help with these?

    It sounds like the doctor is saying the patient it taking Alturcet or Aldraset for back pain. Also, the patient is on.. s/l Pendrin sulfate with glucosamine.....

    I've listened slooow and slooOOoower, and I've looked everywhere I can think of. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks,
    Linda

    Hi Linda

    Here are a couple of tips which may help...

    -Anything ending in cet often contains acetaminophen eg Lorcet, Darvocet, Percocet, Fioricet
    -If you can't get the correct spelling, always try swapping the vowels around eg swap the A for a U

    The Alturcet or Aldraset for back pain I am guessing is Ultracet

    ULTRACET
    Generic Name: acetaminophen and tramadol
    Acetaminophen and tramadol are both pain relievers. Acetaminophen and tramadol is used for the short-term (5 days or less) management of pain.
    More info at http://ultracet.drugs.com

    Still thinking about the second drug...

    Robo,
    Thanks for the tip. Yes, she is on Ultracet p.r.n and has developed an allergic rash.

    I had reached the "mental-block" stage and hadn't thought of searching with a "U" instead of the "A". I'll definitely try all vowels in doing research.

    Still stumped on the "Penderain" sulfate with glucosamine. I'm about ready to turn it in with a flag. Time is running out.

    Again, thanks so much,
    Linda

    Oh, I feel so dense! After a good night's sleep, my ears are much better.

    It's chondroitin sulfate with glucosamine. Sometimes, I get one idea in my head and just can't hear anything else.

    It dawned on me the patient is on medication for osteoarthritis.
