Ease of use clearly not the goal

2
This app is pretty nice if it was designed in the early 2000s. When I look up a drug to get basic info like dosing, MoA, adverse effects, I have to scroll through an entire list of the same drug names to find the correct entry. Every time I open the app, I find myself quickly resorting to other references.

Don’t buy this

I have had this app fir over 15 years and each year the price went up and the functionality and offerings have gone down. Finally they took away the useful databases and delete any customized choices. This used to be the best. Like owning an Edsel. Good bye lexicomp.

Suggestion for improvement

It would be helpful if we could set the height and weight to default to metric for calculations versus the default height in inches and weight in kg.

15 years

I have been a loyal user of lexicomp for 15 years. I’ve recommended Lexi to many colleagues over the years. Called yesterday to renew my 3 year subscription. Informed that it’s no longer offered and several topics are no longer included. No more labs or 5 min consult to name some. New company bought them out. There are alternatives, bye bye Lexi Gary Consultant Pharmacist

Way too expensive

It's an invaluable tool to have but the cost is just too much

Don’t waste your time.

My job deals with acutely ill patients in a hospital setting. For years the ease of use and detailed information made this favorite resource and I used it almost daily. For the past few years however each update has lessened the ease of access and made it more difficult to justify the price of purchase when compared to similar apps. A few days ago I opened my LexiComp app and found a series of frustrating and confusing steps that needed to be taken before I could access the information I wanted. Attempts to reach customer service were of no use. I have requested a refund due to my inability to access the information I need in a timely manner but have yet to receive a response to my request. Given the price I paid for this app the lack of response was frustrating to say the least. As a hospital based provider I need accurate and quickly accessible information which no longer seems to be available from this developer. Don’t waste your money or your time on this.

Update. Excellent information but poor design

2
Update: let me just say I HATE the new update. My biggest complaint is when selecting “jump” through different monograph shortcuts it automatically makes the “mono” the default selection. As if I’m going to remember Lexicomp’s monograph order to find things. No. I want the option of “alpha” the alphabetical monograph jump section to be my default. I would like the ability to change my default and I cannot. It’s a huge pain. Not only that but the mono menu is also not fully expanded and because of that it’s easy to miss sections if you don’t remember to press expand all EVERY SINGLE TIME. Your update blows. Made the app even worse. The is perhaps one of the best drug references out there (content wise) HOWEVER it is extremely expensive and the software design is weak at best. It takes too long to navigate to find the exact information you want to know (endless scrolling though a ton of text). If it was formatted better it would be my go to app. This app needs a lot of work. Automatic updates for one thing. Please make it better it is 2016 and this app's poor design is lagging. If they used some of their money to hire software engineers that actually know what they are doing this app would be a lot more user friendly.

Can’t save tables anymore

Should have listed that you can’t save tables anymore in your last update description. Not worth the price with other comparable and much cheaper mobile apps.

Lexi Complete no longer available

1
It appears that Lexi Complete has been removed as an option. It used to be the go to gold standard for drug information that I have use for the last 14 years. The quality of the interface has decreased the time and now that Lexi comp complete is no longer an option, the quality of the reference material is probably worse than many other free apps that are just as good or better than a subscription. I would no longer recommend this product to anyone as a professional reference. It appears that Lexicomp was bought out by a larger parent company who attempts to monetize the information but the marketing team knows little to nothing about the products they own. If I was the CEO I would start firing people for such poor performance.
