Capitalise Feldene, because it is a trademarked name for a commercial product. Aspirin has lost its trademarked status in a number of countries and has become the generic name for acetylsalicylic acid, so in some cases it will be capitalised, and in others it won't. Epinephrine is a generic product and does not need capitalisation as far as I can tell.

"Aspirin" is a contraction of the German "acetylierte spirsäure", with a generic chemical "-in" suffix. "Acetylierte spirsäure", means "acetylated meadowsweet."

What happens if a child eats salicylic acid?

Acetyl-salacylic acid is the generic name of "aspirin"; pharmacists (called "chemists" in the UK) have the label "ASA" instead of "aspirin", because the name "aspirin" is still trademarked in the UK. Low doses are generally not harmful, but aspirin is an excellent example of the "Goldilocks Principle" of "too little, just right, and too much". High doses of aspirin are deadly (as are high doses of nearly every over-the-counter pain killer). When taken in "childrens' doses", aspirin can help ease aches and reduce fever for sick children.

What is the difference between name brand Tylenol and generic Tylenol?

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE EXCEPT PRICE*. Tylenol is just a brand name (McNeil Labs) for acetaminophen. Acetaminophen is acetaminophen, whether it's brand name is Tylenol, Datril, Panadol, Valorin, or approx. 60 other brand names. The same goes for aspirin. Aspirin is aspirin, whether it's brand name is Bayer, Emprin, ZORprin, or approx. 20 other brand names. By law, generic medication MUST have the exact same active ingredients than do the brand names. Many people believe that generics are not as good as the brand name, but when you buy a brand name medication you are paying for the NAME, and all the expensive commercials. The only other difference is how it is COMPOUNDED, meaning how it is put together. Every company must use the very same chemical ACTIVE INGREDIENT in a generic vs the brand name. *The only thing that can vary are the inactive ingredients that hold the pill together(how they are compounded.)
