Summary

Provides people with HIV/AIDs with up-to-date information on potential drug interactions between HIV drugs and other drugs that the individual may be prescribed (also covers over-the-counter, recreational, and alternative medications). Results are presented as a ‘traffic-light’ system of red, amber, or green. A brief summary of the interaction is given, along with a grading of the quality of evidence (very low; low; moderate; or high). The app is offline after being downloaded to the user’s device, and does not need an Internet connection during operation (except to download regular updates).

Reviewer: Positive Nation magazine, August 2011, published by the UK Coalition of People Living with HIV and AIDS
Review: “A tool that provides HIV patients and healthcare professionals with immediate access to information on potential drug interactions between anti-HIV drugs and other medications that a patient with the virus may be taking. This new tool will increase awareness of how to manage the disease more effectively. Dr Ian Williams, Chair of the British HIV Association (BHIVA), said: “This technology provides a marvellous opportunity to greatly increase ease of access to drug interaction information. This is a way of helping to maintain best practice”.”

Review: "Free. What do traffic lights have to do with HIV? Well, this app uses a red-green-amber recommendation system to tell you about potential interactions between anti-HIV drugs and other medications. Bonus: It works offline. iOS and Android."
