Generic: Official Name – Brand: Company Trademark Name
Generic names, once a drug has been approved as safe and effective by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), are assigned by an official body – the United States Adopted Names Council.
Drugs have only one generic name.
Brand names (also called trade names) are developed by the company or companies that manufacture them. Brand names identify the drug as the property of the company.
There may be more than one brand name.
