About Pillbox

The Pillbox website was developed to help quickly identify medications by their appearance and ingredients as well as exploring current and past marketed products based on information such as active and inactive ingredients, DEA schedule, and manufacturers/marketers.


Pillbox's data and images API is powerful tool for drug identification and reference. We're excited to give developers, data scientists and journalists, and others the ability to build medication-related applications and services using Pillbox.

Statistics, Data & Images

Pillbox is one of the largest free databases of prescription and over-the-counter drug information and images, combining data from pharmaceutical companies, Food and Drug Administration, National Institutes of Health, and Department of Veterans Affairs.


If you're here because of an emergency, call 911 or the national Poison Help hotline at 1-800-222-1222. Most images in Pillbox are not part of the drug labels and have not been verified by the drug labeling company. Always consult your physician or pharmacist with any medication-related questions.
