The National Library of Medicine, in partnership with the Food and Drug Administration is beta testing Pillbox, a reference system for tablet and capsule medications. The site currently contains 5,693 records – 779 of which have images. The system combines high-resolution images of tablets and capsules with FDA-approved appearance information (imprint, shape, color, etc.) to enable users to visually search for and identify an unknown solid dosage pharmaceutical.
