Not to bad for quick reference
Has come in very handy when 'out in the field' so to speak and I have come across a drug that I don't know and I can just just get a quick idea of what it is. Beats dragging a BNF with me. Not sure side affects are essential but I guess it would be nice but there would be way to many. Does need updating a little as all these XL are hitting the medicine cupboards.
Good for quick ref
It's a good app for a quick reference. It would get five stars if you could search disorders/ illnesses which then bring up what drugs are usually given with them.
Useful but annoying fullscreen video ad.
Very useful app, but the repetitive fullscreen advert that keeps playing for various things, including googles app, is very annoying, especially when it completely disrupts any audio streams that I'm playing and listening to.
It it wasnt for the ad playing every 2 page views, i'd give this 5 stars.
