I received an email this morning from Medscape introducing me to their new Pill Identifier Tool.
The tool is pretty simple to use. When you click on the link above youâ€™ll be taken to the Pill Identifier Tool site where you can begin your search. Any pharmacist, nurse, or physician thatâ€™s ever used a reference to identify an oral medication will be familiar with the process.
Across the top of the Pill Identifier you will find several fields to help narrow your search: IMPRINT, SHAPE, COLOR, FORM, SCORING. Iâ€™ve always found that if you have the imprint youâ€™re about 80% there.
Clicking on a medication will give you additional information. Thereâ€™s even an option to view the Drug Monograph.
