A Name For Medicine

Tiny research question — I need a name for a future medicine meant to reduce fever. Like acetaminophen, but something that will work better and faster, a hundred years from now. I just made up a name, but I feel like I probably should know something about how drugs are named, that it’s not just random, ‘this sounds good’? Help?

Current made-up name: parcetiphysine.
