Subject RE: what dictates full medication mention?
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2014 20:41:49 GMT
Using Luke to search the drug index, It (RxNorm code 328608) doesn't seem to be inside the
default rx_norm dictionary...

Don't recall the attributes that was used to build the index, but it could be due to the fact
that it was 'RXN_OBSOLEETED 07/31/2009'?
