Trade names

I realized sometime in the wee hours of the morning that Thorazine is chlorpromazine but thioridazine is Mellaril. Ha!

And don’t get me started on clonidine vs. Klonopin (clonazepam) vs. clozapine.

This is why psychopharmacology confuses me. Not to mention that whole “we’re not totally sure how this works but we’re prescribing it anyway.” (Though M. had a decent explanation of the delayed onset of SSRIs, involving neural networks, so I’m mollified. For now.)
