    At first, I too had trouble with creating a user account as others had mentioned in the reviews. The fields for entering information were not easily readable and one would assume User Name, Password, Confirm Password. However it is User Name, Password, Email (optional). Once I figured that at so far so good in using app. I'll use it on my iPhone and follow up with more feedback

    Not helpful when working in the pharmacy. Doesn't display details regarding drug interactions, only that they exist.
  • Great Useful App!

    As a pharmacy student and soon to be pharmacist, I love this app. I like the design and mobile device UI. After using it for many years I do have one suggestion to offer: the ability to compare drugs via tabs in order to switch back and forth from one drug to another. If you could add a feature like that, that would be awesome. Oh and please make it so you can swipe back between pages from any point along the edge of the left screen instead of only the top left corner back button.
  • Old version was better

    See title.
  • Good information but

    By Bfghhcfoooiii
    The app provides very useful information. I used to use it all the time. Now, it takes a couple of minutes to update every time I open, also, it requires to log in every time. It has become more of a frustration than the good old app it was once.

  • Great App

    By RaL_10
    I'm a nurse anesthetist and this app has more information than almost anything except a textbook. The people that say this takes too long to load must be extremely impatient. I need answers quickly and even if the app tries to update, as long as you have an internet connection, it is a quick update or you can ignore the update and go to the content if it fails. Great app!! Love the information you can't get elsewhere!!!
