Information specific to each medication includes pronunciation; U.S./Canadian/Mexican brand names; key warnings before taking the drug; how it is best taken; precautions when taking; when a healthcare provider should be called and proper storage. The database consists of over 1,450 medication and natural product leaflets, with an additional 600 Spanish language leaflets representing the most subscribed and commonly used medications.
