Drug-drug interaction checker

A great resource in general and excellent that it is free, however, some of the interaction explanations appear odd. For example, trimethoprim interacts with methotrexate through additive folate antagonism and this is a well known mechanism, but the interaction checker highlights competition for protein binding as the mechanism behind this interaction. Not only is this incorrect it could affect the way the interaction is dealt with in practice as protein binding interactions are typically transient and overcome by equilibrium of drug clearance following a brief period of high drug levels.

Medscape for iPhone

One of the best apps available: It is totally free and does not contain anoying adds: You can view most of it off line, and there is the ability to save articles to view later when required; you need to be on-line for updates, the best part is that they send you reminders, when new information is available: It has American drugs eg 'acetaminophen' and 'meperidine' but you soon get used to these: It has sections on Drugs, OTCs & Herbals, Diseases & Conditions, Progedures & Protocols, plus an interaction checker that works really well and gives the mechanism and suggestions. There is also a search function for the whole database or just sections eg Drugs or Conditions or Procedures. Do not hesitate to download this great app if you are in any way involved in the medical profession.
