Ratings and Reviews
Great app... if it works
I have used different versions of this app for years and it was the best medication reference app I have used. However, it suddenly stopped working on my phone and despite my best efforts it just shuts down as soon as it opens. I have reinstalled it and even tried to pay to continue to use it without going through my hospital... but no luck. If you can get it to work, it’s great, but may not be worth the hassle.
Impossible to Log In
I have used Micromedex since 2011. Now, I can’t log in through the app. I don’t remember my password and then when I try to retrieve it, I am redirected to IBM Solutions and this site doesn’t even list the Micromedex app as an option to go to. I have paid for this app on my own for years (not through my hospitals subscribing).
It has become simply impossible to log into. I am so disappointed. This has been my favorite drug guide, and as a nurse I use this information daily in providing direct patient care in an acute setting. My hospital is using Lexicomp and I guess that’s going to be what I have to switch to.
IBM, you’ve ruined Micromedex for me.
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.
