While doing some research on the web today, I came across this site that lets you put in the medications that you currently take and checks for possible interactions. The site also gives patient reviews of the different medications. I hope you will find it as useful as I do.

Just go to:

Love this site. I've been using it for about 6 months. Unfortunately, I'm also one of those who has too many meds to list. That's my only complaint. They've also called me twice for phone interviews to review the site. It's great! Blessings! Brenda

Just wanted to let you all know… I have had Iguard for over a year now. It is great for checking interactions and it also lets you know if the FDA has any recalls or any changes to your medications that you should know about (the kind that you usually don't find out about, just your pharmasist) which is very nice to know. I like to know what is going on with things that go into my mouth.
But, there is one problem that I have come across with it. I am on a lot of medications and OTC's. I cannot get everything listed. Your limited to how many meds you can put on the list. Of course that means you are limited to how much of your medications are really being checked for interactions. I plan on taking this up with them and finding out if they are going to change this or if this is all you get for free. If anyone has any more to add to this or has any knowledge about this, I would be very interested in reading any replies.

Make sure you put in over-the-counter, vitamin and herbal supplements too. These can also affect medications and their reactions/responses.

I think it is a very good idea to check reactions for all the medicines you are on, even the ones you have been on a while. I found a couple of interactions like this, I thought I was just not feeling too well till I found out it was actually the medications.
Thanks for the link
