  2. Select the the pill color (optional)
  3. Select the shape (optional)
  4. You may also search by drug name or NDC code

Useful Tip: Search for the imprint first, then refine by color and shape if you have too many results.

What if my pill has no imprint code?

All prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs in the U.S. are required by the FDA to have an imprint code. If your pill has no imprint code it could be a vitamin, diet, herbal, or energy pill, or an illicit or foreign drug. It is not possible to accurately identify a pill online without an imprint code.
