|There are several considerations when using a drug name in the title of your paper. First, consider whether it is possible to use the generic title of a drug instead of a proprietary name. If possible, always use the generic name. However, if you are comparing specific products, then you make use the proprietary name, or if the generic name is not specific enough, you may use the propriety name. You also should not include the nonbase moiety unless required.
