I added FDA drug search


It's so great that the FDA had a widget for their drug search. I added it to the right, right under Google search (or you can use the one on this page also).

It's easy to use. You just put in at least three sequential letters of the drug you want to find and it will show you all drugs that contain those three letters in a row. The only thing I don't like about the FDA site is it shows the drugs in all capitals, which is so annoying, but usually you can guess if it's capitalized or not (proper drug names capitalized, generics not capitalized) or you can do like I do, once I find it in the FDA site I Google it or look for it in my drug book. Handy Dandy.
