Important Information: NAPLEX Brand Generic Names
Many (former and current) students have asked me this question: Do I need to know brand names for the NAPLEX exam. The answer is a resounding “yes”. You don’t have to take my word for this as NABP has put it into their NAPLEX competency statements. Under “Area 2” of the competency statements, bullet point 2.2 indicates that NAPLEX candidates should know the following about medications; “Commercial availability; prescription or non-prescription status; brand, generic, or biosimilar names; physical descriptions; or how supplied”
One of the most frustrating situations a candidate can encounter is when they cannot remember what class a brand name medication belongs to. Our free NAPLEX brand generic quiz should give you a sense of how well you know brand names and how much more preparation you should put in on this topic.
