As a Firefighter/EMT it has been really helpful to figure out what people have taken that I don't know, there is some paid aspects but for what I've used it for is free and does good for me!
I've been using this app for over 5 years. This is a great app and it gets updated often. I've never had a problem with it and have used it on 2 iPhones and 3 Androids. I highly recommend it. Update 11/2017. Still love this app and still highly recommend it. One thing I noticed is that if you don't spell the drug you are looking for exactly correct, you get nothing and no suggestions for the possible drug. I don't need that feature all the time but it would be a nice feature and make it faster at finding what you're looking for.
The app is great. I love it. Support was terrible. The scheduled update now works on my phone. But that doesn't excuse support. Email was ineffective. Phone support was the worse I have ever dealt with. The guy was obnoxious, rude and condescending. Those were his good traits. Seriously, the guy should be fired. It wasn't lack of training or knowledge, it was outright, intentional nastiness. Never in all my 60 years have I ever dealt with someone like this. And it can't be blamed on overseas support.
Good overall app, remembered it today to check iv compatibility, but inadvertently chose drug interactions, sodium bicarbonate and Phenytoin don't mix in same iv chamber. Precipitates. You guys need to add an IV Compatibility Section, just like Lexicomp.
