Drug Program for the Palm Pre
Drugview is an online drug information search tool. It is a simple search page with options to choose from several free online formularies (some may require registration and login but they are free)
The advantage of Drugview is that it will allow one to quickly perform multiple searches from various formularies for the same drug.
The search results are presented in a Webview within the application rather than in the browser. This may facilitate automatically zooming in the text to a more legible size.
Notes on formularies:
For Epocrates, you will first encounter a "Disclaimer page". Just scroll to the bottom and click on the Agree button and this page should go away.
For MIMS USA, you will be greeted by a login page. If you don't have an account just scroll down the page and hit the Register button, and create a free account. Don't forget to check the "remember me" box when you login.
