Prescription Drug Identification

Everyone cleans out their medicine cabinet every now and then. The cabinet should actually be cleaned out twice a year. When cleaning out your medicine cabinet you should look at every medication’s label to determine whether the medication is expired. Most of the time, while cleaning, you will run across a few unknown prescription pills. They may be from a sore throat or an infection you had at the beginning of the year and may have fallen out of the original packaging. It is unlikely that anyone would remember exactly what the unknown pills are without them being in a properly labeled container. Therefore, it is important to use prescription drug identification tools in order to determine exactly what you are dealing with.

If you have medication you want to identify using a prescription drug identification tool, there are several places you can begin. You can find several prescription drug identification books at your local library or bookstore. These books will show pictures of different prescription drugs to help you identify the unknown pills. You should be careful however and be sure to use updated books. Some libraries will keep old editions and they are not always accurate. Be sure to use the newest edition available. Another place you can find handy prescription drug identification tools is on the web. You can type in characteristics of the pill and the prescription drug identification database will list several options for you to explore deeper.

No matter what you do, be sure to use a prescription drug identification tool before taking any unknown medication. Even if you think you know what you are dealing with, it is always best to be safe when it comes to prescription medication. So, head over to your local library or hop onto the web to find out the names and descriptions of the unidentified pills laying in your medicine cabinet.
