At GoodRx, our mission is to help Americans find the lowest prices on their prescriptions. We work hard to bring you the best drug prices and information, and to help make it easier for you to get the medication you need.
We also know that taking prescription medications comes with plenty of concerns other than cost. Many folks worry about side effects, whether a prescription is working or not, along with many other questions.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with a great company called Iodine. Iodine has built a terrific resource for learning all about the upsides and downsides of the medications you take. They’ve gathered reliable data and clear information about hundreds of commonly used drugs, and collected the experience of thousands of real people to help you know what to expect from a medication.
What can you find on Iodine? Some highlights include:
- Real-life reviews of drugs from more than 100,000 Americans
- Expert content written by pharmacists and doctors in clear, human language
- Simple charts of side effects from FDA data
- Comparisons of different drugs, so you can understand your options at a glance
- Personalized tips on pregnancy, alcohol, and food issues
It’s all online, all free, and all designed to be easy to read and navigate. We think it’s a great complement to the pricing information that GoodRx offers (and you’ll see GoodRx pricing data on Iodine as well). In the months ahead, we’ll also be working with the folks at Iodine to bring some of their valuable information to GoodRx, in ways that make your experience better.
And it turns out, we’re not the only ones who like Iodine. They are finalists for Best Health Website at the Webby Awards (an honor that GoodRx received in 2012). We’re really proud of our partners at Iodine, and want to spread the word—if you have a moment, take a look at Iodine, and vote for them here!
