    The RxNav browser is a powerful desktop application for displaying drug information.  “RxNav displays links from clinical drugs, both branded and generic, to their active ingredients, drug components and related brand names.”

    The browser displays eight tabs (which are not all active for a given search result): RxNorm Graph, RxNorm Prop, NDCs (National Drug Codes), RxTerms, NDF-RT, Pill Images, Class View and Interaction View. This tool also provides links to the Drug Label (DailyMed), MedlinePlus and Drug Info (Drug Information Portal) at the bottom of the screen. The National Library of Medicine’s RxNorm vocabulary is updated weekly with newly approved drug information and monthly with the full data set. Briefly, the NLM assigns drugs normalized names and codes (RxCUI) to facilitate interoperability and reduce drug name ambiguity between electronic systems.
