Ratings and Reviews
I used to love this app (and other Micromedex apps) but now it is requiring I enter the password every single time I open the app. And the passwords aren’t self set and are always a weird combo of letters and numbers that I won’t possibly be able to memorize. This is paid for by my employer and it was annoying enough when my password randomly would expire but now, it’s rendering this app nearly useless. In the ED... I don’t have time to look up passwords on the computer to look up a drug or IV compatibility. This needs fixed.
The only thing you can really do on here is search for drugs. You can search for them but you can’t click on them. None of the links work they just highlight then nothing happens. It gives the option to search by class but then there are no drugs listed under any of the classes. Plus no interaction checker! This app is worthless. It literally only gives names of drugs. Such a shame as the website is terribly useful. It would have been wonderful to have that translated into app form for quick reference.
Lexi Is A Better Option
If you search a drug, suspend the application, then reload it at a later time and do a search for a new drug it will load in information from the previous session despite it not matching the same drug. I was informed to fix this I must delete the app and then reinstall but I’ve already had to do that once before to fix an issue with it constantly asking me to enter my password each time.
I really don’t prefer micromedex already for drug info but I find this issue to be rather unsafe.
