What's New in Version 2.2.5
User Interface improvements
Minor bug fix
Good; Could Be Better
I like the general layout of this app. Lots of information presented concisely. Very helpful. Would love to see some improvements to make this more versatile in the future. I'm in the mental health field, and it would be SO nice to be able to search for more fields other than just the brand name or generic name. Suggestions: Class of drugs, conditions treated, side effects, etc. It would be great to be able to see all SSRIs or Benzos all together, or to see everything that treats panic disorder, etc. Keep up the good work!
Unfortunately contains misinformation and incomplete information: Does not keep current on commercially available pill strengths, and lists inaccurate half-lives. Would be more useful if it contained mechanisms of action and pill photos. (More difficult to maintain but very useful would be comparative price estimates.). Somewhat helpful, but needs pill size updates to be clinically useful.
Great quick reference for clerkships
Alphabetical organization makes for easy location of drugs when you are still unclear on all the different classes.
Would like to see some contraindications.
