Epocrates online is the place to get information on drugs your doctor may prescribe. It is a free web-based drug and formulary reference guide with patient education materials and additional tools. Clinicians currently have immediate access to the information needed to make prescribing decisions – such as drug dosing, drug interactions and health plan coverage.

While the website/program is designed for doctors, it’s also a great resource for consumers to find out more about their medications, including side effects, contra-indications and more. There are pill pictures to help patients correctly identify their prescribed medications. Here’s a link to the Augmentin page to get you started.
