Wondering what that stray pill in your medicine cabinet is? Concerned that you may have received the wrong medication?
Quickly discover what the name of a pill is and pertinent information such as its uses and precautions by going to a pill identifier website. These sites allow you to identify a pill by very basic information, such as imprint, color and/or shape. The sites simplify this process by giving you a selection of shapes to select from as well as color options.
Once you have entered the information, photos of pills fitting those parameters are shown that you can review to help make the correct pill match.
The following are the two top up-to-date pill identification sites:
- Drugs.com not only helps you identify a pill, but also provides more detailed information such as side effects, interactions, dosage information, patient tips, FDA alerts and reviews.
- WebMD pill identifier offers pill usage, precautions, side effects, interactions, and overdose details.
Of course, if you should have any questions about your medication, always be sure to check with a medical your doctor or pharmacist.
