Micromedex Drug Information
NOTE: This app will be retired from the Windows Store effective June 18 2014. In its place, there are now two new apps to choose from—both available June 18, 2014. Each app has the same functionality and provides the same evidence-based clinical decision support content you've come to rely on from Micromedex®. Select the one that's right for you: If you or the organization you work for has an Internet-based subscription to Micromedex, please search in the Windows Store free version of this app, called Free Micromedex Drug Reference for Internet Subscribers, which is included with your subscription at no charge. If you do not have an Internet-based subscription to Micromedex, please search in the Windows Store for Micromedex Drug Reference Essentials, which is available for just $2.99 per year. It is a great low-cost option for those who want access to trusted Micromedex drug information content, but who don't have access to an Internet subscription to Micromedex 2.0. Micromedex Drug Information contains concise information on 4500+ search terms, covering common needs such as: • Adult and pediatric dosage • Adverse effects (separated into “common” and “serious”) • Drug interactions As well as: • Administration • Black box warnings • Breast feeding • Common trade names • Contraindications • ¬¬Dose adjustments • Generic names, including selected combination products • How supplied • Indications (differentiated as “FDA labeled” and “non-FDA labeled”) • Mechanism of action • Monitoring • Precautions • Pregnancy category • Therapeutic class Features • Updated monthly • Search using the Windows 8 Search Charm • Ability to use without a WiFi or cellular connection • No individual login required • Links to and searches your facility’s Micromedex 2.0 subscription (Internet-based subscription to Micromedex 2.0 required)More

Improve UI Navigation
Thank you for bringing this App to Windows! Please make a few UI adjustments: Add a search bar. Add alphabetical characters to fast forward the list of drugs. Improve navigation through the base list and individual drug characteristics Allow immediate navigational response to keyboard keystrokes.More
Very well designed and quite handy too
As a quick pharmacy reference, this app is astonishingly good. Interestingly, the iPhone and Windows8 versions are slick and fast, but the Android version is laggy and nearly useless in a clinical situation. However, I applaud the efforts of the team that created this version for Windows, as it is fast, fluid, and beautiful. The fact that there is some toxicology information on each agent makes this database more useful than Epocrates for us here in the Emergency Department. Update 3/18/2014: Still love the interface on Win 8.1. Updates and initialization take some time, but that is OK. I wish there were a version of this for Windows Phone 8.1More
Clear and concise!!!
Would give 5/5 if it provided more features like drug interactions by plugging in individual drugs, pill identification and dosage conversions. Also please update the app to have a built in search bar given the changes in Windows 8.1. Otherwise a very decent and usable app for physicians.More
As the best of the two drug reference apps on windows 8, I love it. But the features are definitely lacking compared to other platforms. I really wish they ported it to windows phone too.More
Good but restricting
As a pharmacy student, and soon to be pharmacist, this app is pretty lacking in tools, but is full of content a practitioner requires. It would be great to see DDI tools, IV compatibility, etc, just like the online service offers. It definitely needs an update for Windows 8.1 for snap views, and definitely because it crashes frequently when searching. Snap views benefit most when it comes to rounding. Having Citrix Receiver open on one side then this on the other really makes a Windows 8 tablet awesome for medical use, but is lacking due to apps right now.More
Very Fantastic Medical Apps! , But...
Very fantastic medical apps, but I just want you to make it available for windows phone. I want this because it's very helpful app!!!! Thanks!! I'm waiting your Windows phone app!!!More
Almost great app
The app's touch interface will not work. To get to drugs starting with an O I need to keep sweeping the window to the left. I gave up after just hitting the Bs in 15ish swipes. I think it may be a bug. Otherwise this would get a MUCH higher rating. I'll leave it installed for now hoping for an upgrade. I have the first version of the Surface Pro with Win 8.1 installed.More
NO SEARCH BAR!
Great that there is a Micromedex app for Windows 8 as I use this database on a daily basis for work as a pharmacist. However, having to pinch and zoom and scroll to find a specific drug monograph is very annoying and not at all efficient. PLEASE ADD A SEARCH FUNCTION!More
It is a very helpful tool, but since the update, it does not allow me to jump to a letter. If I want to jump to a letter, say a drug that starts with "S" I now have to scroll all the way to the "s"s. I really do like this app.More
Some work needs to be done to fix this app, I've had it for over a year now and I've been only able to use it once. Crashes and is always downloading new content and crashes again.More
