This is more of a limitation of what the RXNORM UMLS dictionary provides (http://rxnav.nlm.nih.gov/).
 They do provide tools such as RxNav which allows querying medications to see what is available.

Subject: DrugNER annotation


I'm trying to figure out why the DrugNER module excludes NACL or NACL 0.9% from the medication
mentions.  I don't see it on the exclude list (and even so I've commented out most of the
excludes in dictionaries/dictionary/excludeList for now).   Is it because NACL needs to be
mixed with something else to be considered a medication?  Is there a way to look at what's
included in GAZ_RXNORM?
