Drug Information Portal

National Library of Medicine (NLM) provides a DRUG INFORMATION PORTAL - "a gateway to information on over 53,000 substances ... through the entire pipeline of the approval process—from the time they’re entered into clinical trials for testing through their entry into the US marketplace."  Some features:  

  • Ability to browse by category, e.g., all anti-asthmatic agents or all anti-hypertensive agents
  • Direct links to drug label data and pill images
  • View, copy, or save a link to a drug’s chemical structure


How to Search for Drug Information

Note: Information on this web site is provided for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice. If you have specific questions about a personal medical problem, you should contact your professional healthcare provider.

When considering how to find information about drugs, you should consider:

  • Do you simply want to know about the drug itself?
    • Its chemistry? what it is used for, etc?
  • Are you interested in the treatment of a disease no matter which drug?
  • Are you interested in research involving drugs?

Websites or handbooks will provide specific information about a particular drug or family of drugs. See the tab labelled Finding Specific Drugs.

Other kinds of information are usually found in the health sciences journal literature and finding those things is addressed under the tab labelled Finding Articles.
