Open-source APIs and a developer community for FDA data

OpenFDA provides APIs and full sets of downloadable files to a number of high-value, high priority and scalable structured datasets, including adverse events, drug product labeling, and recall enforcement reports.

Where to Start

The best place to start is on the API basics page. It provides a great introduction to openFDA and some good pointers on how you can begin developing using the platform.

The OpenFDA Developer Community

OpenFDA features an open user community for sharing open source code, examples, and ideas. Share your feedback, questions, and ideas with the community on GitHub, Twitter, and StackExchange. Take a look at some of the openFDA apps built by members of the community.
