    "Drug comparisons are almost always helpful since it is very rare to not have multiple choices in a therapeutic class."

    "Patient on multiple drugs. Nice to be able to compare for drug interactions before script ie. Antibiotics"

    "Our EMR has fairly robust internal resources, except compare. Compare would have been helpful in choosing a new antihypertensive in a complex patient yesterday."

    "Have often searched for alternative meds for my severe pulmonary patients looking to find generic comparables"

    "Highly beneficial to compare meds of the same or similar class as to the need for dose adjustment, avoidance of risky drug interactions and, also, contraindications."

    "Comparing ADHD meds for length of time they work and peak times"

    "The ability to compare is useful particularly with medications that I prescribe less often or in situations where I am dealing with conditions I am less familiar with."

    Tap + to read what your colleagues are saying

    "The current EHR will disallow med orders with interactions at discharge, but not always for single doses given in ER – this app may help with this deficiency"

    "Interactions are important and relatively simple presentation of them is useful (my emr lists reactions for ibuprofen with almost everything and that is not helpful!)"

    "If I'm adding another medication, I prob. want to know about drug-drug interactions."

    "Patients with more than 5 prescription medications have a higher risk for drug interactions, and many elderly patients have lists of 10 or even 20 medications to sift through, so any help with narrowing down the major drug interactions is helpful."

    "Our EHR flags drug interactions but doesn't tell us what the problem is. I often have to look up what the true significance of the interaction would be."

    "I treat a large volume of HIV patients and ARV regimens are notorious for potential drug-drug interactions. A reputable and reliable drug-drug interaction software program has always been an essential part of my practice."

    "Checking interaction is important for me as some of my patients are on anti-arrhythmic drugs that are notorious in their dangerous interactions"

    Tap + to read what your colleagues are saying

    "Patients often can describe the shape and color of a medication, but cannot tell me which medication they are actually referring to. The pill ID helps with the communication."

    "Identifying a pill by picture is extremely useful for a busy practitioner"

    "I have elderly patients. I am often confronted with those who describe their pills by color, size, shape."

    "Patients bring pills in their own pill box and aren't sure what they are, pill in new prescription looks different than old pill (a different generic or pharmacy error?)."

    "Often have pts with OD come to the ED and we don't know what they took."

    "Report of unknown pill ingestion with fears of impending toxicity. Pill ID could be useful to reassure."
