Abstract: With more Americans using herbal remedies and dietary supplements, health practitioners are striving to increase their knowledge in this area. Health care providers are also increasingly turning to handheld computers for access to medical information at the point of care. This article describes databases containing information on herbs and dietary supplements for personal digital assistants. While the authors recommend arranging for a free trial of each product, they make some general purchase recommendations. NaturalDB (Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database) is the most complete source while ePocrates Rx Pro will suffice for the practitioner who occasionally seeks herbal information.
