On January 29, 2021 the National Library of Medicine's Pillbox program will be retired. This includes the Pillbox drug identification and search websites as well as production of the Pillbox dataset, image library, and application programming interfaces (APIs).

Pillbox's final data and image update will continue to be available as static files to support research, development, and education. These files will not be updated and should not be used for pill identification.

MedlinePlus Drugs, Herbs and Supplements is a trustworthy source of consumer-focused drug information and DailyMed continues to provide the FDA drug label (package insert) for all marketed drugs in the United States. Please note, these resources do not provide pill identification.
