Drugs Dictionary features a great-looking interface and well-rendered images for almost all entries that show you what the drugs look like. This is a helpful app for those who want information on medications, but its database could do with an update.
Excellent interface: Drugs Dictionary's reference page lists not only the name of the drugs, but also includes a small image for almost all of them. The search is smooth, and the individual entry pages look clean, featuring only a small, unobtrusive ad at the top.
Comprehensive information: For the drugs in its database, entries are broken down into sections such as Uses, How to take, Side effects, Precautions, and even Drug interactions and Storage for some brands.
Unbalanced database: You won't find entries for widely-used medication such as Xanax, Vicodin, Methadone, or Oxycodone. On the other hand, there are a dozen or so entries for the erectile dysfunction treatment Cialis.
Inability to search by generic name: Drugs are listed by brand name, and that can vary from country to country. The search function would be more effective, if it gave you the option to search for generic names as well.
While Drugs Dictionary might not cover all the major drugs, it remains a visually appealing and easy to navigate medical database. Using this app to find more information about popular drug brands proves to be quicker than using Google search, so it's worth a download if you're looking for information on many types of medications.
Drugs Dictionary is a useful tool with user-friendly and beautiful interface. Get all the information you need about drugs: benefits, how to take, side effects, precautions, drug interactions, missed dose, storage and more.
