Make brand name optional

Still debating how to handle this, because I’ve had some feedback that many users know and care about the name of the medication or active ingredient, rather than the specific brand. However, there are some cases where a user might take the same medication or active ingredient in different formulations, or made by different brands, and they might want to be able to differentiate when they took different ones, or how each one affected them, even though they’re the same active ingredient.

    In NZ most perception medications don’t have a brand name and pharmacists will commonly box up your perception in a white box that has the active product name and a batch number. You don’t even get to know what company made it.

    For me this means i have had to make up fake brand names to use that app.

    The current beta version of the app makes the medication name required but the brand name is now optional.
