  • Helpful app, easy to understand

    By Cr08160
    It’s a great reference to quickly access the drug information I need.
  • The Best!

    By JPMD1000
    This is the best app for medications. The information contained is curated. Other programs will have long lists of side effects that end up looking the same because the list of side effects list every imaginary side effect. Micromedex’s list is clinically relevant. It is quick, easy to use and best of all it is recognized as one of the authoritative resources for non-FDA uses of medications when fighting for PAs.
  • Rip-off

    By Steve72901
    I’ve used this app for years, with complete satisfaction. I renewed in May, and one month later they notified me the app was getting ready to expire. They have now locked me out of the app. I contacted support and they resolved the issue quickly. I’m back to being a happy user.
  • Bugs

    By Abdullah 1990
    this app is full of bugs and outdated informations
  • Broken Now

    By CMP4
    I’m a pharmacist who used to use this app as an alternative to more expensive drug information databases. It was helpful for when I’m away from my computer and with patients or when people asked me questions when I’m not at work. A recent bug that other users have mentioned has rendered the app useless. It works fine when you download it at first. When the app updates once, it gets stuck on the last drug that was searched. The only way to look up a new drug is to delete the app and re-download. There’s also a bug where all headings within the drug’s page pull up the same information. Currently, information for the “dosing and indications” tab pulls up when you open all other tabs. The interactions database appears to work fine. IBM needs to fix this before they lose all their users. I’m upgrading to a better database.
  • Stuck on one medication

    By beyondfrustratd1
    This app is stuck on one medication. No matter which drug I click on, the same medication comes up each time. This makes the app a useless was of time and money. Please fix this!
  • It doesn’t work

    By valbrownrj
    I paid for this app and I even can’t use it. I wouldn’t buy and/or recommend it to anyone!😠
  • Broken

    By [ SeaLass ]
    I’ve subscribed to this app for years and have been nothing but happy with its performance. But now, with this latest update several months ago, whenever I look up a drug, I can’t view the information. It’s stuck on one drug. I’ll change and improve my review when you give me my subscription money back pro rated.
  • Best in toxicology rotation on call

    By Abduriad
    I strongly recommend it for all emergency residents All what you need in toxicology information will find in this app
  • Useless

    This app has literally become unusable. Half the time I open a drug and none of the tabs open or it opens information on another drug. As a pharmacist, this used to be a nice, handheld reference. How useless now.
