    Drugs.com Medication Guide's review

    Published: 2015-08-24, by .

    The Drugs.com app is a one-stop shop for all things medication

    6.3
    • Search for and identify any type of medication
    • Information is valuable
    • Reading large blocks of text is tedious

    "Doubts about your meds?"

    THE VERDICT

    The Drugs.com app is an excellent tool for identifying medication within the USA. It has a comprehensive database in which you can read guides and consult any type of information, as long as it's related to legally prescribed medication. The app has a nice design, although sometimes the information is presented in such a way that it becomes a little tedious.

    THE PROS

    We like the fact that you can search through a massive medication database, as well as being able to obtain important information such as side effects, interactions between different substances, cost, and even a phonetic pronunciation guide in case you've forgotten the exact name of the drug. Other extremely useful features include support groups, a symptom checker, and dosage information, the last of which is vital for the correct administration of meds.

    THE CONS

    The app works well, however it does prescribe massive doses of text that we can't quite stomach, as they're pretty complicated. Luckily, however, navigation within the app is quick.

    Good app for info on drugs and its side effects. Its funny how our drs and pharmacists never inform on possible effects of all these meds. But then again if they do, they will have shut their doors. Everyone do not med because somehow it will ruin kidneys, livers etc. Try to find alternative if possible. Do not hold me against me what I said, do ur research and do what you think is best for you.
