Most Important App ,

Accurate and Absolutely necessary

If you take more than 2 pills a day, you need this app. Not only does it allow you to put in all your Rx AND over-the-counter drugs, but it notifies you of any contraindications & rates them from major (severe) to minor. It also explains the best way to take them, will let you know if there’s a recall even before it goes really public, and you can set the App up to notify you to take your medication. It will also check the Rx against your allergy list. Just recently , the app notified me that a new beta blocker I was prescribed had a major interaction with one of my chemos. It took my oncologist a week to find the source of that information in a tiny little article in JAMA, and it was absolutely correct. Things could have gone very south without that information and it was not in any of the Rx literature. This App also provides vital medical information when you or anyone else needs to know what you take in an emergency. You can also print out all the information either as a full sheet or as wallet cards to keep with you.

The App is part of the WebMD/ Medline online medical resouce which is one of the best authoritative & updated sources of medical information .

If you are taking 4 or more meds, this app is essential. It has a pill identifier included that tells you what pill you have if you find one loose lying around the house, just enter the imprint and what it looks like. It also allows you to create a medication profile, where you list all your medications you take and it cross references them for interactions. It also lists all possible side effects, etc. Also, it serves as an emergency card in case of emergency and say you are in a car accident or knocked unconscious and sent to the hospital, if they can get into your phone and your not conscious to tell them what medications you are on , the hospital or ems people, or your family if they can get into your phone, can put together a list of what medications your on from your medication profile so they know what they can give you and how to treat you without hurting you or causing interactions. With some medications that is very important, such as nalaxone or suboxone, if you are on either of those and in a car accident and need to be intubated, it is essential for them to know you are on either of those two medications. Great app, many more features. If you take more than just a couple meds, this app is for you.

With the oh so many things going on in the drug industry and the greed of the cheap manufacturers I find it hard to remember what each round white tablet is and I know exactly where to go and what to do. I was a first responder on 9/11 and have Congestive Heart Failure and BIG Pulmonary issues, the skinny me started to work out for pain control issues, not wanting any narcotics at all and my field I always required a fair degree of knowledge about drugs and the drug industry which was once quite a challenge before I found this incredible app. As my life changed it is I who am now always reliant and in need of as much knowledge as I can find although for myself as a priority,
I can always rely on what is provided here by searching for my needs as I sadly cannot rely upon my facilitating MD’s, but I can rely on the information I get here and always check which might not interact well or is contraindicated for me as most MDs dont bother. Thank you For it ALL over the years, it has saved lives before, and now I can include my own, and that is quite a lot to say about what I can get here!
