My aim is to give intelligent support to the textbox where the user will type the medicine name that they want, and I will provide suggestions of the medicine.

For this purpose, i want to get the list of all names of medicines from OpenFDA.

I am able to retrieve the particular medicine details from their site, by using this query:


But, I am unable to get all the details of the medication.

I have also seen this link, and have been told to use this API all alone and not any other API.

Could someone help me to understand how to do this?

If, for some reason, you must use openFDA for this use case, you could go ahead and page through the following API call:


However, this isn't too helpful because brand_names are duplicated so you would then have to have the user specify, somehow, which record they want (or maybe you can make some sort of assumption).
