google knowledge graph drugs

When struck by illness, we’ve all been guilty of playing doctor by relying on information that’s available online to self-diagnose. Google, being the all-knowing search meister, gets enough queries on medicines and medications that it’s now introducing a quicker and easier way to learn the A-Z of your favorite pharmaceutical drugs.

The next time you do a Google search on a certain prescription drug, the search results page will handily show key facts of the drug, such as its common uses, side effects, alternative names, and related medications, as well as additional in-depth resources, and more.

You don’t have to worry about accuracy as the data is taken straight from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Library of Medicine, and other legit sources.

We tried to emulate the search on the picture, but it seems that the latest addition to Google’s Knowledge Graph hasn’t been rolled out yet – at least to this side of the world. So it’s back to Mayo Clinic for most of us.
