    Top 5 Pharmacy Dosing Applications for BlackBerry

    Below is a list of the top 5 pharmacy dosing applications for BlackBerry, some of which are free of charge, currently available for download:

    1. Archimedes: The Free Medical Calculator. This application, mostly used by pharmacists, allows you to calculate hundreds of different medical formulas for putting prescriptions together. This removes the hassle of having to remember all of the different formulas or having to perform research every time a formula is needed.
    2. Medscape Mobile. This application allows the user to look up formulas, check how certain drugs interact with others, what herbals cannot be taken with certain drugs and log prescription information.
    3. Epocrates. This application allows the user to lookup formulas if they are in medical or pharmacy school, lookup different drugs, and log prescription information to file reminders about taking pills and needing refills.
    4. This is an online pharmacy that now has an application for BlackBerry smartphones. Users can do almost everything on the application that they could do on the regular website.
    5. Walgreens. Another pharmacy application; this one comes at a minor cost. This application, like the previous four, allows users to enter their prescription information into the phone to setup reminders that can be helpful in the future.
