WebMD Drug Index

WebMD Drug Index

Have you ever come home from the pharmacy and thrown away the drug information that came with your prescription? I know I have. It never fails that later, you want to know something about what you’re taking and don’t have the information anymore. Well, provided you have the name (brand or generic), you can find out about it from this Web site. You can even search by condition and there are over the counter medications listed as well.

You can type your search in the search field to begin. Make sure you choose By Name or By Condition, depending on how you want to search and then click the Go button. I typed in Flonase Nasal, which I am taking for terrible ragweed allergies. It’s terrible! I can’t even step outside my door without being miserable.

I get all the information that the pharmacy would have given me: how to use it, side effects, precautions, interactions and overdose information in a convenient, easy to read version where everything is laid out in an orderly fashion.

You’ll notice below the search field that there are two tabs. One is for the Top 200 Drugs and the other is for Drugs A to Z.

Top 200 Drugs is exactly what it says. It’s an A to Z listing of the top 200 drugs. These are often the most prescribed by doctors from what I’ve seen and there’s a good chance your medication is here.

Drugs A to Z is a full listing of drugs from A to Z. Just choose the letter of the alphabet you want to search under and get started scrolling through the thorough lists of drugs. This is a good place to find some over the counter medications as well.

Either way you search, this is a handy tool to have in your bookmarks for those times you need to look something up!
