What's in granny's pillbox?

Check out Pillbox, a new National Institutes of Health -- National Library of Medicine resource that lets you identify pills both visually and via text search (i.e., drug name etc.).

Designed for use by emergency physicians, first responders, other health care providers, Poison Control Center staff and concerned citizens, Pillbox enables users to identify solid dosage forms of medications based on physical criteria: imprint (characters or number printed on a medication), shape, color, size, and scoring.

For more details (and disclaimers), please view the Pillbox FAQs.
