Summary

Contains informational tools that can guide a user in making decisions about personal health. A symptom checker aids in identifying potential conditions or health issues. Medically-reviewed information about conditions is available. Contains a database on drugs, supplements, and vitamins, with details about usage, side effects, warnings, etc. A pill identifier helps the user recognise prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medicines by colour, imprint, and pill shape. Custom lists of drugs and conditions can be created. One of the app’s facilities is only of value in the United States: the app lists healthcare providers in that country (doctors, hospitals, and pharmacies, etc).
