Question about favorite list?

5
Is there a way to separate mine and my husbands favorites?
By ronjune6

It’s ok

3
I’m a nursing student and for the most part it works ok. Every time I search norco or hydrocodone hydrochlorothiazide comes up. Meds are missing too. Don’t remember which ones because I had to resort to lexicomp on the desktop but I feel like for $50 the app should be updated more often.

Missing drugs

1
I’ve been a nurse for a while and in my downtime I look up random drugs and have found this app to be woefully lacking on the drugs I want to know more about. In 3 months, I have come across 19 drugs we have used but are not listed in this reference. That’s pathetic.
By Tiggerca75

Not what I was hoping for.

2
This does not have drugs such as etomidate, and ketamine available.

Excellent Resource for Medication Information

5
I have been using the Mosby’s Nursing Drug Reference since the for edition was published. Yes that dates me. However, it has always been a very reliable resource for information about medications I administered to my patients. It was also an excellent resource for my nursing students, and one that they could take with them into the nursing field after graduation. The drugs have always been listed alphabetically by generic name, which initially not all references did. This is invaluable in looking up drugs more quickly. Having the drug reference is very helpful, even now that I am retired. I still get asked questions by others. I can quickly look up the information on the app in my phone without having to take the time to do an internet search. I would definitely recommend this resource to those that need a good reference for drug information.

SCAM: misleading and worthless

1
App does *nothing* — it’s worthless, and you CANNOT “preview” anything until you fork over $45.00. At which point you’ve wasted $45.00, because the “drug information/database” is old, outdated, incomplete, and lacking in content (current drugs, et al)
By REV-PRISM-INF

Inadequate

1
I'm a practicing physician and this app is not up to the task. Couldn't find mitotane or fosfomycin today. Not worth the memory it takes up on your device
By Darkflamer

Disappointed

1
I purchased this app to help me with clinicals and so I would have to take my drug with me to clinicals. When I was searching for some of the drugs I needed to look ( they are not new drugs either) I couldn't find them or there classification. I spent a lot of money on this app to use as a resource and the book and neither one is very helpful.
By N8ivechic22

Disappointed

3
I bought this drug book to use at home yo look up medication before I took it. Aim a retired RN. Since I bought this(about 2 Weeks ago) I have looked up probably about 6 medicines. At least 3 wasn't in the drug book. Some of these were old medicines and should nave been. I downloaded "Webb MD Drugs" and every medicine I look up is in it. It was free!!! Looks like I wasted 45 dollars!!! I'm giving 3 stars because the Meds that you find in have a lot of information about them.
By lagtjpt

ER RN

Everything I need to know on the fly when giving new meds! Very helpful in assisting me to answer pt and family questions. Not to mention safety of contraindications and administration route/dilution and time!!
