    "This app is so great it makes me nervous that it is going to replace us, pharmacists. You can type anything into the search bar and find out exactly what you need to know. So you need to find out the medication options for migraines, type it into the search and all the options come up with contraindications, dosage, literally everything you need to know!"

    "A lot of us take prescription medicines but sometimes we forget what the doctor tells us, as far as what a medicine does or it's potential side effects. Lexicomp is a great app that puts info on medicines right in your hands for whenever you need it.
