I'm sure it's not the only one, but Prozac is also marketed as Serafem (for PMS symptoms). And of course the same drugs have different trade names in different countries. A quick look around on makes this abundantly clear. For example, I'm not sure what makes the brand name "Aropax" more appealing than "Paxil" in Australia and NZ, but apparently the marketing GlaxoSmithKline think it is.
