Welcome to Pharmer.org


Welcome to Pharmer.org, an educational resource that will help you identify and learn about the medicines you and your loved ones are prescribed. We have assembled some pill identification reference tools for you. Our Common Imprints detail some of the more commonly prescribed drugs:

We plan to continue giving drug identification imprints for other medications. If you can't find your pill imprint in our lists, we have assembled links to other Pill Identification resources. If you don't like to research, we also have interactive forums for the discussion of new medicines, pill identification, and prescription and OTC drugs. Feel free to ask a question or answer a question. Or provide helpful comments regarding new medicines. Or tell us what you would like to see on our site.

Searching for Pill Imprints

Here are a few hints that should make your pill identification search on Pharmer.org easier:

Try using the drug imprint numbers only. This works best if you have 3 or more unique numbers like 361 or 3601.

Less info is better. Don't search for 'white round scored pill marked 512 and Percocet'. This type of search works on the internet search engines, but it doesn't work well on Pharmer.org. Our search results will include all white pills, all round pills, all scored pills and all pages where Percocet and/or 512 are listed. If you search for ‘512’ the results will include only those pages where 512 is mentioned.

Don't add a space when searching for an imprint divided by a score. For example, S 8667 imprint is S on one side, and 86 | 67 on the other side. The only way to search is simply to use 8667, not 86 67.

If your pill has a set of numbers (44 XXX, 93 XXX or XX XXX), try searching for the second set of numbers. If that doesn't work, try all the numbers. First try with no space between the number set. If nothing matches, try adding the space. But be aware that adding the space will bring up all pills with 44 or 93 or XX on them - and there are many.

If you don’t get results by searching for numbers only, try adding the letter or letters on the pill if any. L 484 should find all pages with 484, L484 and X484. L484 will give you only those pages that match the phrase exactly. Watson 503 will show results for all Watson pills, whereas Watson503 will zero in on that pill imprint only.

If the pill imprint consists of one letter or logo only, check out our Vague Pharmaceutical Imprints article. This article has a lot of neat images of 'strange' imprints and might help you identify your pill. We add images periodically.

If you don't find your pill ID, please post a question in our Pill Identification forum, and someone will be glad to help you.

Vague Pharmaceutical Imprints

Updated 04-27-12

All FDA approved pharmaceuticals must have a unique imprint. An imprint is any marking on the pill such as an engraved logo, numbers and/or letters, or a raised or debossed symbol. Some pill imprints are quite simple. Maybe the imprint is only a logo; other times it's one letter or number. We have assembled a list of some unusual imprints that are hard to identify and which are commonly mistaken for street drugs such as ecstasy.

These drug imprints are the hardest to find in the databases because there is so little information to go on. It's a lot easier to identify a pill marked with a letter and three or four numbers than a drug imprint consisting of only one letter, number, logo or shape. Pills with simple imprints make positive pill identification difficult. Look through any imprint database, and you're likely to find many different medications marked with an identical letter or number.
