FAQ: Pill Identification

Question: How can I identify a pill?

You should first ask your pharmacist or doctor to identify the pill.

These Internet resources may also help identify medications sold in the United States. The NLM® does not recommend or endorse any products, services or information found outside of NLM resources. You need to evaluate the value, authoritativeness and timeliness of the information you find.

You may be able to find these books at your local public, university or hospital library:
