@tajinder007,
Drug companies make up all sorts of names for drugs. This is because these items are protected by patent; companies often want to create an exclusivity vibe.

Drug names are vetted and tested and can be investigated under focus groups. They might give forth ideas of strength, calmness, etc. Names like Viagra and Lunesta are made up.

Problem is, I can't find this drug - Google keeps trying to correct it to diazepam. Are you perhaps misspelling the name? I doubt even a drug company in, say, India, would deliberately use the prefix nazi- in a drug name. There are plenty of other letter combinations out there.

My Google showed me a few results for Nazipam and more for Nazepam. Suffixes like -azepam, -azipam are used for benzodiazepenes, which are used as anti-anxiety agents, anticonvulsants, muscle relaxants, sedatives, and hypnotics. Nazepam is often prescribed for insomnia.

I see plenty of posts on medical-question type forums from people in India where they mention using Nazipam and Nazipam Plus for anxiety, sleeplessness, etc. I don't know if this is a spelling error on the patients part.

@tajinder007,
Perhaps you mean ALPRAZolam. This is a pharmaceutical for anxiety and /or insomnia.

Thanks a bunch, guys - I was kind of running and posting at the same time. With SEO, common misspellings are good to sprinkle into content, as people make typos and search under them all the time (e. g. exel or excell for the Microsoft Excel program).

I bet we'll get more traffic here on A2K because of this misspelling.

@jespah,
Maybe, but do we want it?

@roger,
You and I don't own A2K. The owner has certainly said he wants traffic.
