X,Y, Z -Scientific letters used in psych-drugs brand names










It's not coincidence. The letters X, Y and Z are used on the brand names of psych-drugs because of their scientific appeal.

Very clever and eye opening. Also, very frustrating and sad. I just get so overwhelmed with it all. I think one of us has been on most of those listed, at one time or another. Not good.
Hope all is well.

Brilliant! Did you come up with this yourself?? it's very astute!

Ana said...

Gianna,
No. I've read a tiny little line on this many time ago.
I had already made a post on this at the beginning of this blog but it was not very clear.
They really choose the names with people who understand about marketing.
I'll try to search from where I took it.

Hi Ana,

Had not realised but s soonas had read t ealized the truth of it.

It does feel more scientific therefore good.

So if chew xyz chewing gum and we buy lots of products with xyz all ovyer it then we are oozing scientific cool.

Sounds appalling but true.

Love,
Herrad
