Great info. Great place to find quality information. Not happy with the constant force close when searching more than one medication.

Not up to date! No information on basic meds such as tylenol or motrin!

Super helpful for overly worried moms! A great app when I was nursing and wasn't sure if the medication I was taking was ok to take while breastfeeding. Nothing like quick, fairly thorough information at your finger tips at all hours of the day.
