I got it to look up some info on nursing and marijuana use, something I've researched before, this app doesn't list anything on marijuana. I looked up alcohol use while nursing and found the information to be lacking and out of date, I've already researched it. Quite surprised that it didn't even list adderall as a medication, something I've taken for years while nursing, approved by pediatrician and obgyn, studies dating back to the 70s. Don't bother with this app.

Dear Diana, we are working on improving the functionality of our app. Since our team is Europe based, it might happen that meds not available in Europe are not included (yet) in the database. Info on alcohol and marijuana use in pregnancy & lactation is available in Conditions and Hot topics, and regularly updated. Kind regards, VE Turk, MD, PhD

Won't open. I really wanted to use this app. As an ob/ gyn I could use it. It won't open. Tried reinstalling, and waited and waited. Just overheated my phone
