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 (For example, Tylenol®). The common (generic) name is the standard name of the medicine (in the same example, acetaminophen). The label on your medicine will state the brand name, common name, or both. You can search our Drug Library using either the common name or the brand name.
