Known common generic and trade names of pharmaceutical preparations are listed.

Attention is drawn to the following indications:

  • A pharmaceutical preparation known to contain, in addition to the controlled substance, other ingredients that are not under international control, is indicated with a single asterisk (*) at the end of the name.
  • A double asterisk (**) placed at the end of a name indicates that the preparation contains more than one substance under international control. In that case, the name is listed under the post for each substance. However, sources do not always provide information on the composition of each preparation.

Example: In the sample post on medazepam, “Tranquirax*” is listed and indicated as a multi-ingredient pharmaceutical preparation, containing the controlled psychotropic substance medazepam as well as other ingredients not under international control; furthermore, its trade name is a registered protected proprietary name.
