Identify pills by name
You can start using the LowestMed pill identifier, by entering the drug's name. From there, see if the image associated with the name matches what you are trying to identify.
Identify pills by imprint, shape, color, symbol, size or score
With LowestMed's pill finder, you can determine a pill's name by inputting at least one of the pill's physical appearance into our drug identifier.
Why it's important to identify pills, using a pill ID tool
It's important to be informed with what pills may in your home. Periodically check your medicine cabinet for expired prescriptions. If you're unsure what the pills in your medicine cabinet are, use our pill identifier with pictures, to determine the pill's name and use.
What if you don't find any pill images when using LowestMed's drug identifier?
If you don't find any pill images, when using our drug identifier, you can always take the medication to a pharmacist to have them help you identify it. Though this is more time consuming, it will help you identify pills that may be left in your medicine cabinet.
If you need to dispose of medications, prescription drop off locations can be found through your local law enforcement.
