Join me as I talk about the pronunciations of phenytoin and isotretinoin.
📌Phenytoin is an anticonvulsant medication (generic for Dilantin).
📌Isotretinoin (generic for Accutane) treats severe nodular acne that is unresponsive to other treatments.
In my pronunciation episodes, I break drug names down into syllables, explain which syllable or syllable(s) have the emphasis, reveal the source of the information, and put the written pronunciations in the show notes so that you see them and use them right away.
The purpose of these pronunciation episodes is to provide the intended pronunciations of drug names from reliable sources so that you feel confident saying drug names and less frustrated learning them. I hope this episode helps you!
Phenytoin = FEN i toyn (emphasis on the first syllable, “FEN.”)
Isotretinoin = EYE soe TRET i noyn (Secondary emphasis on “EYE.” Primary emphasis on “TRET.”)
