  • The content of the Tarascon Pharmacopoeia iPhone App is excellent. Certainly better than the free options. Probably my first choice, above even some choices that cost $100+

  • All pharmacists need at least 2 drug databases to make sure they have the latest info. The Tarascon Pharmacopoeia application is a must.

  • I'll go ahead a call The Tarascon Pharmacopoeia the best pharmacopoeia on the iPhone. Worth the price and the wait. I've purchased the print version of this every year for a little less price, but this is faster and has more info.

  • Couldn’t get through my day without the Tarascon Pharmacopoeia iPhone App. I have been using Tarascon for over 15 years & feel this is the best value out there for real providers prescribing in a busy practice.  I use this ap dozens of times per day.  Highly recommended.

  • I've relied on the Tarascon Pharmacopeia for years. I think the free apps are great for a second reference, but not as a primary one. I wouldn't take any chances on prescribing medication with a name that isn't recognized. The Deluxe version is simply excellent and worth the investment for your patients.

  • The Tarascon Pharmacopoeia is fast and concise. Perfect for my needs. The price of the app is little in comparison to its utility and my own confidence in the information it provides.  Five star tool!
