Does the pronunciation of those big long drug names come with experience? I'm horrible at pronoucing things.

Yes and no. You'll find that not everyone pronounces the same drug name the same. You get to pick which one you think is right in most cases, unless you get an anal boss that corrects you all the time, then use their pronunciations.

If you are looking for a website in order to learn how to pronounce drug names, Lexi-Comp has a pronunciation function that might help!

Yeah, is it ESK-eh-tal-uh-pram or ess-I-tal-uh-pram? I've heard both - from professors. I assume it's the latter since the name describes the S-stereoisomer.

EDIT: Answered my own question. It's the latter - more or less - "es sit tal' oh pram". I wish I could delete posts.
