The service provides listings for a subset of drugs available to be prescribed in the United States from the larger list of all prescription medications maintained by the provider's [[/api/rxnorm RxNorm service]]. Prescribable listings also include selected popular over-the-counter (OTC) medications that doctors frequently prescribe. The listing omits drugs available only in countries other than the U.S. and those usable only for veterinary purposes.
API methods support retrieval of an updated list of drugs with correct names, ingredients, and system identifiers. Methods also support access to descriptive information, such as NDC and UNII codes, relationships to other drugs on the list, and rankings by prescription frequency.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
