  -> Indeed, if you have one, it kills the organisms that caused your angina

disagree  Javier Bogarin, MD: does not sound like an anti-anginal product, sounds like a typing error in the original

disagree  Carina Medina: Looks like mispelling. To consider angi- as angina is a wild guess. Besides, most bacterial anginas are cured using antibiotics.

Pain killer

Hola Rick

Yo nunca he oído angicida tampoco.

Anti-angina (para combatir la angina de pecho) sería antianginoso en castellano.

Si fuese “anti-anginas” (para combatir la amigdalitis) sería un antibiótico o un antiinflamatorio.

Jugando con prefijos y sufijos, para ver dónde puede estar el error:

Angio = vaso (pero angiocida = “para matar vasos”????)

Algio = dolor y en inglés el término común para referirse a un analgésico es ‘pain killer’.

¿Puede tratarse de una traducción (terrible) del inglés?

Espero que esto te sirva de algo.

Pd. me encantan tus comentarios en los foros.
