Ratings and Reviews
This app use to give all drug information and was my go-to. Now it only gives drug interactions and no information about the individual drug. I am very disappointed as it’s now a useless source to me as a pharmacist since it’s no longer an all in one source of information. I’ll be sticking with lexicons or factsandcomparisons
Great product - if you're sitting at your workstation
This products yields very useful info - but I experience multiple difficulties using the mobile app. Every time it upgrades (quarterly at least, when. They provide new data), I need to re-enter a new password. As I have a subscription to this through my hospital, I need to be at a workstation in the hospital network to find. The new password for this quarter. In other words, I cannot use this mobile app without first sitting down at a workstation.
Even worse, sometimes the password does not even work. I just updated and entered the password from our library, and it's not accepted. Our librarians contacted Thompson-Reuters (Micromedex) tech support. They shared "they are aware of the problem, but they don't have access to the new password. No time estimate on when the web page will be updated with the new password. Their advice is to use the web interface until this problem is corrected."
My advice is if you're going to spend money for a mobile drug interaction program, do it with a company that understands and is committed to supporting a mobile platform. Based on my experience, Micromedex (Thompson Reuters) does not fit my needs.
It seems there is no hope for some people. The first paragraph clearly states that the app is free but the subscription costs $9.99 a year. You can't be more clear, seems you can't please anyone any more. I didn't bother to try the app because I'm not in the medical field and saw no need to pay the cost. I did d/l it though just so I could respond to the first reviewer.
My thanks to the company though for offering inexpensive information that helps care providers better assist the people under their care.
