Comment:
Would it be possible to add RxTerms? This is a  the clinically relevant subset of RxNORM  that is current, approved, and clinically  used in the USA.  

It is maintained by the NLM, and in production use by the government for health portals. 

See link for more information:

Note: RxNORM contains discontinued, unapproved,  and outdated  medications that are  not applicable in the USA.   These are of  interest to historical or archival purposes, but have no clinical value, and only adds complexity for the vendors of the 5000+ MU Certified  healthcare IT products that are now on the market to standardize their terminologies for healthcare data exchange on a common reference terminology.
