Our data, content, and user reviews—in your product.

The Iodine API brings our pharmacists’ clear, actionable drug information and real-world patient reviews to your product or application in a simple JSON format.

Get started by signing up for an API key.

We'll get back to you shortly to talk about how you want to use the API—and give you a key to play with the data. In the meantime, see our API docs to learn more about what you're about to have access to.
