My textbook mentions Meprobamate and Equanil separately, under Anxiolytic drugs and even provides two (not-so) different structures to back their claim.
However, Wikipedia would beg to differ:
Meprobamate — marketed as Miltown by Wallace Laboratories and Equanil by Wyeth...
Which would naturally imply, that Meprobamate and Equanil are...the same thing. ಠ_ಠ
A quick search with Google Images got me this:
Now this particular textbook I use has, over the years, gained notoriety among several generations of us students as the Mater Omnium Errorum. So in all likelihood, my textbook's the one that's wrong here.
But since I'm not a Pharmacologist, I'd appreciate it if someone could verify if Meprobamate and Equanil are the exact, same, chemical.
I tried Google, but that endeavor wasn't particularly helpful.
