An excellent application if you want to know...


...more about the drugs you are prescribed. The database is comprehensive, frequently updated and easy to access.

The drug interaction database is my favorite part of the application.

If you like knowing these things, this is a key application.

I have been using the free version of this app for quiet a while.
I was introduced by colleague of mine at work and I love it !!!
Excellent app!!!
Easy to use, very comprehensive and most importantly to the point.. it has excellent index
It doesn’t make tou waste your time searching and reading a long explanation for a disease or condition.
I wish they had more pediatric coverage.

The only problem I have encountered is that when you are not connected to WiFi, the search engine doesn’t respond ?!
Other wise I would rate 5/5.
