Hey all -

I've been trying to find different apps to make life a little easier. So far, I haven't had the greatest luck with actual organizational tools, but I did find one to monitor drug shortages.

It's provided through the Drug Information Center of the University of Utah, using information from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. http://www.ashp.org/

It has a list of current shortages, resolved shortages, and unavailable drugs through ASHP, and a list of FDA reported shortages. It does seem to be up to date, especially on the feed function.

The app itself is called RX Shortages, by Mick Schroeder, and the website is http://mickschroeder.com/rxshortages

Hope some of you find this at least a little bit helpful!

:thankyou: so...so... much!
Easier to access at times instead of using web.
I have both sites bookmarked, but this is sweet on my Droid!
Going to pass on app recommendation to my Neurologist.
This really rocks.....
