The Drug Information Portal is a free Web resource from the NLM that provides an informative, user-friendly gateway to current drug information for over 32,000 drugs. Links to sources span the breadth of the NLM, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other government agencies. Current information regarding consumer health, clinical trials, AIDS–related drug information, MeSH pharmacological actions, PubMed biomedical literature, and physical properties and structure, is easily retrieved by searching on a drug name. A varied selection of focused topics in medicine and drug–related information is also available from displayed subject headings.
This portal is now available for mobile devices. This mobile optimized web site covers over 32,000 drugs and provides descriptions, drug names, pharmaceutical categories, and structural diagrams. Each record also features information links to 19 other resources; including NLM PubMed, NLM LactMed, and Drugs@FDA. The mobile version of a resource is used when available. Smart phones accessing the main Drug Portal site will be taken to the mobile site.
