The best place to learn about prescription medication is www.Drugs.com

  • You can get the complete info about your new prescription: learn the brand and generic names; indications, counter-indications, side effects and the best way to take your new prescription.
  • Got pills you can’t identify? The pill identifier will help! (Considering the cost of prescriptions, it’s better to know what you’re about to throw out…)
  • If you’re worried whether your new prescription can be safely taken with those you’re already taking, the drug interactions checker is a great solution.
