Epocrates OTC drug module for BlackBerry

If you're a BlackBerry user, don't forget that you can get the Epocrates OTC drug module for Epocrates Rx.

The Epocrates OTC drug module provides the latest information on hundreds of brand name over-the-counter drugs. Each product-specific monograph answers questions such as:

* What are the active ingredients and their uses?
* What's the dose for my patient's age?
* What flavors are available?
* Does the product contain alcohol, sugar, or dyes?
* Will it interact with prescription and herbal medications?
* Is there another product with the same active ingredients, but in a chewable or liquid form?
* My patient needs an analgesic, an antihistamine, and an antitussive; is there one product with all of these?
* Is this product covered by my patient's health insurance?
