Epocrates Rx is the best free App for a pharmacy technician
There are many apps out there that you can get for free or for a couple of dollars. One of the first ones to come out was Epocrates. I remember back in the day (about 12 years ago), pharmacy staff were running around with these clunky Palm Pilots (I have owned about 3 or 4 different ones). Epocrates was one of the first ones to come out with a free version, and of course a more advanced version for a price. I have to tell you, I think the free version is pretty darn good (for a free product). I have a Blackberry and an iPod Touch (my company allowed iPhones after I got my last Blackberry, and now I am stuck with it until my next contract period . . . 6 months). I know you will not cry for me, and I can appreciate that. What does the free app have: General generic and brand drug information and nice summaries of mechanism of action and basic need to know about the medication. It also has a nice pill identifier, drug interactions checker, and assortment of medical calculators. I also picked this because it is for all mobile devices. Go to epocrates.com to see for your self.
