Pros: Easy to use. I've been using it for the past 15 years. Updates all the time. Excellent resource for anyone in a medical practice.

Cons: Some features not available unless you pay for a subscription. Very useful otherwise. Would pay for it if they gave a discount to providers.

Overall: Keeps me up to date on medications

fast and easy way of looking up relevant medical information

Pros: the search option is great. search "kidney stone" and it pops up guidelines, conditions, drugs. it's a great way to look up something in a pinch

Cons: the interface is lacking. I don't like how it makes you hit an "e" button to go back. a lot of the content is locked unless you pay a large fee which I'm not sure is worth the money

Perfect for nurses, easy access to all the information you need!

Pros: I'm normally not looking to sift through tons of information to get the little piece I'm looking for. This software is perfect for that, I normally don't have to search too hard to find appropriate drug dosages, drug interactions etc. The app is also really easy to use, I know nurses of all ages who use this. I was recommended it by a nurse who had been working for a long time and it's a great tool.

Cons: The paid app is really expensive. Other than that, I think its a must have for new or established nurses.

Overall: It's like having your drug "pocket guide" with you but only having to carry your phone around instead of a heavy book that is never actually pocket-sized. I've even shown the app to some patients, in case they are worried about drug side effects or interactions with how many medications they take.

Awesome pocket tool for the practitioner.

Pros: I love being able to easily calculate drug dosages, identify what labs to draw, and come up with a list of differential diagnosis quickly.

Cons: It would be nice if the cost was not so high, as it can be pricey if your employer does not cover it for practice.

Pros: Comprehensive yet concise reference accessible at the point of care. I can get virtually all the information I need about pharmacology, indications, contraindications, dosing, side effects, met interactions from this single resource.

Cons: Consistently have to click three or four times to get the home search screen. The search all meds screen should be the default

Great App

Pros: This software is excellent. It gives you all the necessary information right in the app about any drug that you need. So easy to use and fast.

Cons: There really aren't any cons. One feature I would like to see would to be able search for drugs based on their looks. Sometimes patients can recognize pills when they don't know the drug name.

Pros: Easy to use, regular updates (new medications, new indications, new alerts)

Cons: Nothing -- they have resolved the issues I used to complain about (mostly, it was that you had to be at the desktop to update)

Overall: I have used this since it was first launched in the early 1990s, on a Palm Pilot. Over the years, they have made progressive upgrades, both as technology has changed and to meet user requests/needs.

The periodic short pieces about recent research, the picture quiz poll, FDA alerts, etc. are very helpful, but do not interfere with your ability to get to the necessary content. They have finally added the class of drug in the individual monographs -- it now shows up under the main monograph header and under the Pharmacology section.

Easy to use, perfect for fast drug information
