To the Editor:  —The Drug Identification Guide (JAMA182:1145 [Dec 22] 1962) is excellent and obviously represents a great deal of thought and work.Would it not be a further step forward if the manufacturers would put the name, or a short abbreviation thereof, on each tablet and capsule? Obviously this could be done, since various insignia are now imprinted. Occasionally, perhaps, a hand lens would be necessary in order to read the name.
