By Georgia lloyd
As a medical student, I subscribed to The Medical Letter. This group has their act together. Their interaction tool is no exception. A practical approach to drug interactions that is evidence based, gets rid of all the mess I’ve seen with products that focus on theoretic, but not actual interactions; this is the tool I rely on.

Skyscape makes this product easy, quick and intuitive to use.
