The January full monthly release of RxNorm became available on Monday, January 7, 2019, and does not include the Veterans Health Administration's National Drug File – Reference Terminology (NDF-RT). NDF-RT was removed from RxNorm and will not be in future RxNorm releases. For more information, see NDF-RT Removed from RxNorm Beginning 2019. Similarly, NDF-RT was removed from RxMix and the NDF-RT API was discontinued.
