If you’re looking for a comprehensive medical app, Lexicomp is a great place to start. With databases for drug information and interactions, dosing, OTCs and natural products, lab and diagnostic procedures, toxicology, and even dental, Lexicomp provides comprehensive reference information. The service is subscription-based, and can be expensive, but institutions often have subscriptions and database access can be purchased one at a time.
