Palm and program suggestions...?

  1. Can anyone suggest a good PDA/software combo for a drug guide? I really like the prentice hall (book version) drug guide, but can't seem to find anything newer for PDA software that's not newer than a few years old. That and how do I know which software will work with which PDA? I'm just looking to replace dragging a drug guide in book form around with me everywhere I go and do a palm/PDA of some sort with a drug guide in it...

    I was thinking or liked the Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld Organizer but not sure if it's a good one.


    Any suggestions?

    Huh? Can't find anything new??? I don't have any idea where you are looking but you might try:
    www.skyscape.com or www.unboundmedicine.com or www.pepid.com etc.

    All have current, up to date drug guides or integrated drug guides and there are other sites, too.

    Thanks Ken for the info, and yeah, couldn't find anything new for the PH version, didn't know where to search to get anything else, I have one of the books, but PH all I can find is the 2005 version, and I don't want to go that old, would much prefer something alot newer.

    Thanks again for the info!

    Thanks, now selecting a brand of PDA is the next step, anyone know if all software will work with any palm? Sorry to be asking so stupid/silly of questions, but i've always just lugged around a book for my meds, just in case. I've just never bought one before and am looking to make the upgrade. Would anyone suggest what is best, finding the software that I want first and then buying a PDA to suit that software or the other way around, or does it even matter?
