Civic hacking FDA's National Drug Code Directory
Building a look-up of Food and Drug Administration approved medicines.

(This post is part of an ongoing series documenting adventures in father-son civic hacking.)
We built a drug look-up tool of Food and Drug Administration approved medicines using the National Drug Code Directory API. This includes:
- Drug search tool
- Page listing for each FDA-approved medicine
Each drug listing includes:
- Generic name
Data used for this project:
- National Drug Code Directory (Food and Drug Administration)
Big kudos to FDA for:
- Maintaining a public application programming interface of the data.
Example drug listing:
