New app tells you what to take when you’re sick

Iodine.com, an online health information database designed to give users access to more information about medications and other healthcare choices, has launched a new web app dedicated to treatments for the cold and flu season.

“With the variety of symptoms you get, and the marketing hype of name brand drugs, it can be tough to find the best medicine for your cold or flu symptoms,” said Lifehacker.com. “Iodine’s new Cold-and-Flu feature tells you exactly what to buy based on the symptoms you have.”

In a statement, the company said that the new site allows people to look through over 300 different cold and flu medications to find and compare those that treat their own specific set of symptoms. They call it the first app of its kind dedicated to influenza and the common cold.

Once you get to the web app, you just enter your symptoms, and the site will generate a list of medicines that will help you based on their active ingredients. It lists the type of drugs that can treat the cold and flu, as well as information about dosages and potential health risks, and also lists store brands that are comparable to well-known products.
