Drug Guide for Consumers

Brought to you by Drugs.com, the Drug Guide for Consumers is a comprehensive database of medications commonly prescribed in the U.S. and approved by the FDA. Coverage may be incomplete for medications not approved in the U.S.

The App includes easy to understand consumer level information displayed in an easy-to-read simple navigable format including: side effects, boxed warnings, precautions, administration instructions and overdose information. Search directly by drug name or browse by medical condition / drug classification.

The app also includes FDA Medwatch alerts to help keep users up to date with timely new safety information relating to medications and dietary supplements. The alerts contain actionable information that may impact treatment and diagnostic decisions for the patient.

All data is stored on the mobile device ensuring speedy access. Safety alerts, content revisions and new medications are added on a monthly basis.

Please note: The application purchase is for a one year subscription. Updates will be provided on an approximate monthly basis. You will need to renew your subscription after the initial 12 month period to continue receiving updates.
