Well, I see your point, but we're competing here with qljkvwqrx,

something that could be easily remembered. I would argue that they're
not much worse than

Acthrel Iprivask Strensiq Eltrombopag Ondansetron VinCRIStine Arixtra
Arzerra Ertaczo

which are actually from a list of registered drug names that the doctors
are supposed to remember. Maybe someone could come up with a suggestion
for a better algo---adding just few vowels would fix them up
significantly:

umirckobysag mopsopiarefor doptinenchoc lymdeotemicyn goclywodhoki

BTW, when I looked at the list of drug names I was impressed with the
linguistic inventiveness of whoever comes up with this stuff; most of
them not only could plausibly be pronounced, but also sounded vaguely
'medical'.
