A What rush?

Thanks TGA

It would seem the TGA would now like Australian doctors speak more like our cousins across the Pacific Ocean in America, that is. There is a updated list of the politically correct names we should all now be using for a select group of drugs. https://www.tga.gov.au/updating-medicine-ingredient-names-list-affected-ingredients. I know these are really the International Nonproprietary Names but it seems that most of the names are being changes to what Americans call their drugs rather than what generations of Australian doctors have called them.

Adrenaline shall now be called epinephrine. the sight of a white pointer rushing at you on a small yellow kayak, the feeling as you catch a 100 foot wave or jump from a perfectly good plane  or a solid mountain top, or as you touch 300kph in top gear will now forevermore be an EPINEPHRINE RUSH. Doesn’t really sound the same does it?
