About Pharmer.org

Mission Statement

Pharmer.org is an educational resource with a simple goal - to help educate you about the medicines you and your loved ones are prescribed.

We believe everyone, everywhere is entitled to know everything about the medicine he/she is prescribed or found before it is ingested. Good enough - some of this information is freely available; but often some pill imprints are mysterious, cryptic and otherwise unavailable unless you are a professional organization with a large budget. This shouldn't be the case.

You, the consumer, are paying the bills. You are entitled to know everything about any medicine. Unfortunately most free information is available for the big brand-name meds only. You see the ads day in and day out on television, in print and on the internet - so you are familiar with these drugs.

What about the thousands of generics, some made by small manufacturers, that get no attention? What do these generics look like? What if your refill doesn't look the same as your last prescription? What do these pills do? What interactions can happen with the brand-name drug or generic equivalent? What new pills were approved by the FDA yesterday? What problems might be anticipated down the road?

We will help with pill identifications by imprint and give links to health topics.

Together we have the power to ensure medical knowledge and safety for everyone.

The Pharmer.org team is comprised of individuals who have no medical or pharmaceutical credentials/experience other than personal experience. We do not offer or provide any medical advice.

We do provide an organized and comprehensive list of common pill imprints marketed in the USA. These lists are generated from public information available at Drugs@FDA and manufacturers’ websites. For all other topics regarding health, medicine and drugs, Pharmer.org refers the consumer to credible and authoritative sources.
