Oops, here's the URL to the news quote from Walgreens about their multi-lingual label service: http://www.walgreens.com/about/press/othernews/091603.jhtml.

Hello, everyone.  Drug information, including pill images, is online via the Spanish portal site for Walgreens: http://www.walgreensespanol.com/.  Click on: "Información sobre medicamentos."  

"Walgreens also announced it is adding German, Italian and Tagalog (for Filipinos) to the [prescription] label service this month, bringing the number of languages available at any Walgreens pharmacy counter to 11. Other languages available include English, Spanish, Chinese, French, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Vietnamese."

Also, from their English page, they supposedly offer a way to check for drug interactions with OTCs, vitamins, supplements, and herbals, under "Check drug interactions."

Feel free to forward this email.  :)

Take care,

Tanya
