About Iodine

People have a lot of questions about medicine.
Iodine is here to help them find the answers.

Our mission is to help people find what works best for them.

We believe that clear information and good design can help people make better decisions around their health and healthcare options.

And we believe that everyone’s experience is valuable, and that experience can guide others in understanding their own options and choices.

Our data comes from the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health. Our reviews come from thousands of people who have shared their experience with a medication, contributing a review or offering a tip for others like them. Our content is written by a team of skilled pharmacists and physicians who believe that people should know what to expect from their medications.

Our goal is to become the most useful and most trusted resource for medication information on the planet.

We are a small team of designers and developers based in San Francisco.

We have worked with the FDA to build better tools and access to data about prescription pharmaceuticals.

Our data and content is available via an API to select partners who want to bring meaningful, actionable information to their audience – including patient experience and what-to-expect data. Learn more about our API here.

We’re approved by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy e-Advertiser Approval Program. You can read more about the program on the NABP website.
