Clonazepam

So I was just reading this article...

And it made me wonder: Drug names are awfully complex. I have heard of Clonazepam before, in conversation. Surely the medical practicioner of the household has mentioned it, probably several times. But when I saw the name, I couldn't recognize it by the shape. I had to sound it out. Is that one of those power things, where now I've been forced to use phonics on the situation, and I've been put in the position of a 5-year-old, and somehow I'm going to, therefore, more readily accept the physician's decision that it's a) safe and b) the right choice?

Just wondering.
