    Has all the info I need. If I have a question about how to push a med, I pull my phone out and look it up, and then proceed with confidence.

    Very poor app. Very little information. I was excited to see drip charts, there are only 4 or 5. That's like 10$ per drip chart. Guess when an app shows you very little up front watch out. I would like my money back. Feel CHEATED
  • In depth info

    Reference offers excellent info. Most of which can be found for free in one of the other free references. The main reason I got this was because It said it would show compatibilities. All the drugs are on one page using a top and side label system. It is a huge table that makes it impossible to tell if you're on the right line. Plus the key for the table doesn't even include the small a. Your guess is as good as mine as to what it means. Very expensive disappointment to me. If anyone comes up with a decent compatibility checker app they would do well in the app store. Wish I could get my money back.
