Valuable medication info


This app seems like such a great resource for looking up medications, reading reviews and learning about side effects. The layout and graphics are so refreshingly clear and easy to understand.

There's just a few points of confusion for me. One is the "alternatives" comparison section. It looks like better rated drugs are labeled as "worse." Something seems backwards, unless I'm looking at it wrong. The Allergy Wizard is also a little glitchy. Some of the buttons at the top stay darkened even when deselected. Otherwise, the Allergy Wizard is an awesome idea.

Overall, it's a great app. I wish I had this a long time ago. I'll turn to this anytime I have a new prescription or condition.

Truely The YELP for Medications


Awesome app. I stumbled upon it looking for information online for a medication. The website or app (because both surprisingly works very well) gives you very detailed information on medication. The feature which I love is the compare medication tool. You can compare both meds to see which one os better for you. Also you can give your own personal experience with it, so like a tip. This is an awesome app which can help save lives potentially, and give people more information by giving people more overall use for medication.

Great resource but buggy


Great app when you want the real info from people who have actually taken medications rather than doctors who downplay the risk of side effects. App doesn't let me leave written comments half of the time, it skips the screen and says "thank you". Outside links in the app (like to the FDA) also don't work.
