    Pronunciation Series Episode 13: Soma (carisoprodol)

    Pronunciation Series Episode 13: Soma (carisoprodol)

    Soma (carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxer.  The generic name is famously difficult to pronounce and has several variations.  Most people just call it by the brand name Soma, whether they’re talking about the brand-name drug or the generic. In this episode, I share a 30-second [audio] clip of carisoprodol pronunciations from YouTube (for educational purposes).  
    How do these pronunciation episodes work?  After I say a drug name, I break it down into syllables, explain which syllable(s) have the emphasis, reveal the source of the information, and put the written pronunciation in the show notes so that you see it and use it right away.
    The purpose of these pronunciation episodes is to provide the intended pronunciations of drug names from reliable sources so that you feel more confident saying them and less frustrated learning them.
    Written pronunciation from the USP Dictionary Online = kar EYE soe PROE dol
    *Disclaimer:  I do not work for USP, and I am not compensated in any way for mentioning the USP Dictionary Online.  Thank you to the USP Legal Dept for permission to use their written pronunciations in my podcasts and YouTube videos!
    Carisoprodol has five syllables.  In my humble opinion, all five are slurred together, especially the first two. 
    Kar has a hard “K” sound, like “carrot.”  The “A” is super short; it’s barely there, like the children’s toy K’Nex.  The “R” slurs right into the second syllable:  “EYE”  
    Eye, like eyeglasses (This syllable has the secondary emphasis.)
    Soe, like you “sew” on a button.  
    Proe, like a pro football player (This syllable has the primary emphasis.)
    Dol, like dollar

    Interview with Ashley Walker, PharmD - Pharmacist, Entrepreneur, and Advocate

    Dr. Ashley Walker returns to the podcast today to talk about being a pharmacist, an entrepreneur, and an advocate.  She was also featured in my Back-to-School Series in August 2022 (Episode 173), which promoted her Speed Signing (American Sign Language) Classes and OTC Hearing Aids Class.  
    Ashely is deaf, but you will hear her speaking voice in this episode.  This interview is also available as a YouTube video. Click here for the YouTube link.  *Updated subtitles will be added after the video has been published.
    Bio (January 2023)
    Dr. Ashley R Walker is a pharmacist, entrepreneur, and an advocate.
    Dr. Walker holds a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Xavier University of Louisiana and a Bachelors of Science in Biotechnology from Rochester Institute of Technology. She has been a pharmacist for 7 years and recently transitioned into full time entrepreneurship. Prior to her transition, she has had experience in retail pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, and long term care pharmacy.
    Her recent transition into full time entrepreneurship has led to the birth of her business Med Max Consulting, LLC. Under this business, Dr. Walker can advocate for members of the deaf and hard of hearing community as well as offer medication counseling services to help this unique community maximize and optimize their medication therapy.
    Since her high school years, Dr. Walker has been an advocate for members of the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. She spends time speaking to students in elementary, middle, and high school encouraging them to never let their hearing loss be a reason not to dream big and go after their dreams. As a deaf person herself, she also helps business owners and healthcare professionals make their businesses/practices inclusive to members of this unique community.
    Dr. Walker enjoys reading, traveling, going on walks with her family, and attending festivals.
    With her personal experiences as a deaf pharmacist and advocate for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community she aims to remind the world that deafness should not be viewed as a DIS-ability but rather a UNIQUE-ability.

    Pronunciation Series Episode 12:  tianeptine

    Pronunciation Series Episode 12:  tianeptine

    This is one of my drug name pronunciation episodes.  Today, we’re talking about tianeptine.  
    How do these pronunciation episodes work?  
    I break drug names down into syllables.   I explain which syllable has the emphasis.   I reveal the source of the information.  I put the written pronunciation in the show notes so that you see it and use it right away.   If you’re new to my pronunciation episodes, welcome!  The purpose is to provide the intended pronunciations of drug names from reliable sources so that you feel more confident saying them and less frustrated learning them.  I hope this episode helps you!
    Why did I pick tianeptine for this episode?
    To talk about the pronunciation  To improve awareness about it   Highlights from this episode
    Written pronunciation = Tye uh NEP teen
    Tianeptine has 4 syllables.
    Tye - like you tie your shoes
    Uh - schwa “A” sound 
    Nep - like the planet Neptune
    Teen - like a teenager
    🌟The third syllable NEP gets the emphasis.🌟
    There is no official pronunciation for tianeptine in the USP Dictionary Online. How I say it was guided by pronunciation patterns for other nonproprietary (generic) drug names and drug classes (ex:  queTIApine, dilTIAzem, THIAzides/hydrochloroTHIAzide, and benzoDIAzepines/DIAzepam). 
    What is tianeptine?  Tianeptine is an atypical tricyclic antidepressant that is not approved by the US FDA.  Its affects are opioid-like.  News outlets have called tianeptine “gas station heroin.” For more information about tianeptine, read this news release:  State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy Bans the Sale and Use of Tianeptine (12-22-22).  
    Advice for pharmacists and pharmacy students about tianeptine. 
    Use common sense.  If someone takes tianeptine and needs immediate help, call 9-1-1. If someone comes to you with concerns about tianeptine, and you don’t know enough about it to be helpful, refer them to the Poison Help Line:  1-800-222-1222.   If one of your patients is harmed by a tianeptine product, fill out an FDA MedWatch Form.   🌟 Special thanks to Kylie at the Poison Help Line (Ohio) on 12-31-22, for the reminder that 1-800-222-1222 can field calls about tianeptine. 
    ☎️ Program 1-800-222-1222 into your phone, and share it with your patients, family, and friends TODAY!
