Review: The Medscape app is a comprehensive and completely free medical information app. Although it is designed for use by health professionals from the US, it still is a very useful app for Australian health professionals. Some of the features include a search function, drug reference information (for over 8,000 brand, generic and OTC drugs including herbals and supplements), medical news and a Drug Interaction Checker. The Drug Interaction Checker is very useful and provides interactions for up to 30 different drugs, herbals and supplements at a time. Log in is required only for the first time using the app and new users can register for a free account. It is a great tool for all health professionals and has a user-friendly interface and a huge amount of content. It is highly recommended and available in itunes and Google Play.
