Drugs' Generic and Brand Names

I'm doing a self review for Pharmacy Technician because I'm planning to take the certification board before the year ends. One of the challenging part is to remember generic and brand names and it's classification whether it's for diabetes, hypertension, GERD, anti-depressants, narcotic pain reliever, antibiotic, antihistamine and many more. The other day as I was browsing the internet for information about drugs that I encounter during my review, one of them is for treatment of stomach ulcers. I read some dexilant reviews mentioning that dexilant is better than the leading brands and these people who gave their testimonial sounds credible because they were able to emphasize it's effect to them which more than better than the leading brands. When in doubt, try to research and discover what others have to say about whatever medication you want to try or prescribed to you. I include here the top 200 drugs based on my reviewer for reference.
