Dear All,

As I promised Bennie Sue the other day, Iíve been doing a little research on names of drugs in different
areas. This is, I think, particularly important as the readership increases, and as OUCH, hopefully, develops
internationally. (It might even be my little bit for OUCH).

I managed to track quite a few down, but would be grateful for any help where there is a question mark, or
correct me on any obvious cock-ups. (I shall be exceedingly pissed off if someone now gives me the address
of a site which does all this for you!). I donít makes any claims as to effectiveness, merely that these things
have been mentioned at some point or another.

Here goes: (there is a table below - but I can't work out why you have to scroll down...)

TRIPTANS

RizatriptanMaxaltMaxalt??
NaratriptanAmerge/Naramig??

OTHERS

Iím away for a couple of days, but it would be nice to have a full e-mail box when I get back (though my
wife might disagree!). (Another plug, if you added your month/date of birth to the e-mail for my other
survey if you havenít done so Iíd be grateful - but please put the month in words as we write 2nd March
2000 as 2/3/00 and you can imagine the transatlantic confusion!)

In preference e-mail not the message board!

Thanks,

Simon
