Gets worse and not better

It seems that over time the information gets more generic. Specifically in areas such as MOA. As pharmacists are a primary customer it would be good to have as much detailed information on the details as possible. New UI is not easy to navigate. Why did you make it use an extra keystroke to search? Previously one started typing and drug names popped up in a given database. Now you have to type and hit search then correct spelling then hit search again, rinse and repeat. Annoying. Beginning to think there are other options that are better although I’ve been using continuously for over 15 years now. 3 stars for content but would only give 1 star for UI.

Developer Response ,

We are sorry that you are experiencing some difficulty with our application. You can perform an autocomplete search by accessing Lexi-Drugs directly. From the Home Screen, tap on Library > Lexi-Drugs > Drugs. Here you will see the drug list filter based on your search criteria as you type. We are working on a future enhancement to bring this feature to the home search box. You can contact support at if you need any additional assistance.

Back to 5 stars

**revised** Developer published a fix to the update screen default. Everything is back up to speed and no more waiting for drug info if there is slow or no WiFi access. Thank you!

The newest version of the app defaults to the update screen. I can’t tell you how much I HATE this. If there is a poor signal or no WiFi access in a building, it is not possible to navigate away from the update page until the device has failed to make a connection. How embarrassing when a physician stops me in the hallway or calls and I can’t look up the information of concern. It just makes an angry physician who isn’t interested in waiting while I stare at my unresponsive screen. If I could keep the drug data in my head for instant recall, I wouldn’t need Lexicomp in my lab coat pocket at all times. Please change this!

Latest update

Update: The latest update fixed my 2 problems

I wish this new update didn’t automatically check for updates when you open the app. I work in a place that doesn’t get reception or WiFi so I’m stuck on that update page for at least a minute until it fails to connect. I can’t navigate away from that update page when I don’t have reception.

Also when you search for a drug I wish it would show the drugs that begin with the letters you typed first. For example, if I search for a drug that begins with H, show the H drugs first. Don’t show me every single drug that has the letter H in it.
