[bioontology-support] finding RXCUIs for a large list of medication names

Hi Richard,

I can try to help you with the API. I’m wondering if I could get a little more detail from you. Could you give me an example of a medication name? Also, do you know whether or not there’s a specific ontology that contains these RXCUI properties? Are you referring to the Drug Ontology?

Kind regards,

Hello BioOntology help!
I hope you're doing well today!

I am attempting to find the RXCUIs for a number of medication names (in the 10s of thousands) and was hoping there was a way that I could 'feed' a list of medications into the portal and have returned to me a list of RXCuis for those medications.

Is this something that is possible?  I've tried reading the API notes, but am having trouble making heads or tails of where to begin.  I have written some Python and can install that on my local machine, but don't know where I'd go to next.

Thank you for any guidance you can provide!
