The Drugs.com mission is to be the Internets most trusted resource for drug and related health information. We will achieve this aim by presenting independent, objective, comprehensive and up-to-date information in a clear and concise format for both consumers and healthcare professionals.
Their goal is to provide clear information about drugs sold in the USA, at a level everyone can comprehend. For consumers, we provide product information in non-technical language. Health professionals will find what they need in the FDA Product Label Professional Information database.
The Care Guide provides information about the treatment of common illnesses and injuries. The Drug Interactions checker details drug-drug interaction mechanisms, severity and management, and also outlines drug-food interactions.
Drugs.com is NOT an online pharmacy and does not condone the sale of prescription medicines over the Internet without a prescription. Drugs.com simply provides a free drug-information service to help you better understand how medicines work: their uses, side effects and potential to interact with other medicines. For information on purchasing prescription medicines online please visit the FDAs Buying Prescription Medicine Online: A Consumer Safety Guide.

Most search engines cover the entire Internet, and searches on these engines may produce many results that are not specific to your drug question. On Drugs.com, you can search by medical condition or by drug, and get the answer you need right away. Searches by drug can be made using the brand name or the generic name of the drug. Searches by medical condition will return a list of medications used to treat that condition.
