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.

New company merative absolute disappointment

This company called merative which is apart of ibm or another entity is completely useless. I spent at least an hour on the phone trying to restore my account only to find out that I am no longer able to access the content because my employer doesn’t support the app and they no longer allow subscriptions from private clients. I have been using this drug reference as apart of my career for 10 plus years and without warning was cut off access. How unfair and disappointing. I wish management would really consider how stupid this move was. No longer recommending this as one of my most respected drug references.

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.
