The RxNorm Current Prescribable Content is a subset of currently prescribable drugs found in RxNorm. We intend it to be an approximation of the prescription drugs currently marketed in the US. The subset also includes some frequently-prescribed over-the-counter drugs.
The subset includes only the active RxNorm normalized names, codes (RxCUIs), attributes, and relationships, as well as the FDA structured product label drugs and ingredients. It does not include data from any of the other 10 RxNorm data providers, such as First DataBank, Micromedex, or the Veterans Administration. We also removed suppressed and obsolete data.
The National Library of Medicine provides this subset without any licensing restrictions. You do not need to log into the UMLS Terminology Services to access the subset.
The RxNorm Prescribable API is a web service for accessing the RxNorm Current Prescribable Content from your program via SOAP/WSDL.
We provide documentation for coding Java and .Net applications. Documentation for building applications in other programming languages (e.g. Perl) may be added at a later time.

RxTerms is a drug interface terminology derived from RxNorm for prescription writing or medication history recording (e.g. in e-prescribing systems, PHRs). There are two RxTerms APIs (SOAP/WSDL and RESTful) available to provide developers with functions for retrieving RxTerms data from the most current RxTerms data set.

Use UMLS resources in developing effective natural language processing systems that provide semantic interpretation to support innovative information management applications in the biomedical domain. The SKR_API provides access to the entire suite of SKR tools including MetaMap, Medical Text Indexer (MTI), and SemRep, and allows programmatic access to the SKR Batch and Interactive facilities allowing users to submit data and receive results from within their own application(s).
