Online Medication Checks

Epocrates offers sophisticated clinical tools, as well as patient education materials, which are available online from their free web based drug and reference guide, Alprazolam. The site features illustrations of pills and capsules online for Clinicians to refer to, and this helps patients identify their current prescribed medications. Physicians do not generally consult patients on the cost of medications, mainly because this was not easily available. But the new Epocrates drug database means that patients without health insurance can ask clinicians to check the average retail prices for medications. Whether or not the patient has insurance, the option to prescribe a lower-cost alternative can be considered.
