I Want A New Drug

Is there a dictionary of prescription and OTC drug names, which has an open license or can be licensed cheaply?

I am looking for a database, table or flat file etc. of prescription drug names — generic and brand name — which can be used in the development of a software tool.
The key is that the data have an open or inexpensive license. Bonus points if the database includes a short description of the drug, manufacturers, and other metadata.
I'm not looking for a web service or web lookup, but a static data structure that I can include with the tool and use to look up references locally.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge and pointers!
