You can then track your experiences with those medications using notes and a variety of formatted reports that can be viewed on the device or emailed in PDF format. Store info on your physicians and pharmacies and tie them to your medication records using the contacts feature. You also have once tap access to the latest information on your medications from MedlinePlus, a service provided by the National Library of Medicine.
