Drug Information Portal now available for mobile devices

National Library of Medicine LogoThe National Library of Medicine (NLM) Drug Information Portal is now available for mobile devices.

This mobile optimized website covers over 32,000 drugs and provides descriptions, drug names, pharmaceutical categories, and structural diagrams. Each record also features information links to nineteen other resources including PubMed, LactMed, and Drugs@FDA. The mobile version of a resource is used when available.

Smart Phones accessing the main Drug Portal site will be directed to the mobile site automatically. The Drug Information Portal is a free web resource from the NLM that provides an informative, user friendly entry-way to current drug information. Links to sources span the breadth of the NLM, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other government agencies. Current information regarding consumer health, clinical trials, AIDS–related drug information, MeSH pharmacological actions, PubMed biomedical literature, and physical properties and structure is easily retrieved by searching on a drug name. A varied selection of focused topics in medicine and drug–related information is also available from displayed subject headings.
