FYI-Free Pill Identification & Information Database

Here at the Health Sciences Library we often turn to Micromedex for pill images to identify loose medications.  There’s both search by pill markings and by color, shape, pattern information.  But Micromedex’s Drug Identification tool is an expensive licensed database and consumers can now turn to Pillbox, complete with 1800 images of prescription medications.  And now, app developers can access the 1800 images via the RxImage site.
