    Does not fit the full screen of the iPhone X, makes the app look really bad to look at.

    I really hope you put more thought into your drug databases than you put into this app. All it does is crash. Every version. All the time. This is not user error. it happens on multiple phones, newest Ios/iphones/ipads - and even after reinstalling the app and reinstalling all the databases.
  • Love it

    1st. Go to their website and buy it from there. MUCH cheaper than thru the App Store!! I have not had any problems with crashing and I also have not had problems with updates (I am able to bypass this if I need to access information immediately). Not sure if those are older reviews I was reading, but the app has been working great for me! Indispensable!!

    For the first time in 10 years, I am not renewing my subscription. Lexi needs to update their business model and actually get some decent app developers to fix their garbage app. I am not paying $300+ for an app that constantly crashes and is slow to load. When I need info, I need it NOW, not in the apps leisurely time, if it feels like working. I always have the newest iPhone, so processing power is not an issue. I don’t want to call and speak to someone to transfer my subscription when I buy a new phone every year, I don’t want to pay again if I am working with my tablet and want to access information. I have no other app that has these restrictions. Micromedex and Epocrates may not be as comprehensive, but they are not $300 and they seem to work more consistently.
  • Great app

    Lexicomp app is very easy to use. Not only is it a great drug reference, but also compatibility checker. The other clinical tools are great: 5-minute clinical decision tool, pediatric reference, herbals, home meds, patient education. There is so much info! Great app! I am and FNP student and it is a boon for my rotations. Very handy! highly recommend!

  • Not worth the money to me

    I purchased this app for grad school and it was such a waste of money. Not only was it required, but the app is not user friendly and you ALWAYS have to perform updates ( takes forever)!!! I would rather use Epocrates, much nicer, very informative and easy to navigate while seeing patients. My only complaint is the cost :0(... Almost 200 per year, but it’s so good for a new practitioner...

    Willing to tolerate an outdated app because lexi’s information is so much better than micromedex and uptodate is harder to navigate. Biggest complaint: If it needs an update, you can’t look up ANYTHING before you update. I’ve got a nurse on the phone asking me a compatibility question, and it won’t let me look it up until I do a 3mb update. It’s irritating, because I usually use the app when I’m looking for an answer quickly.
  • Difficult to use as a pediatric RN

    The primary pediatric maintenance fluid (D5.45NS+20KCl) isn't even listed in the fluid compatibility. And when I'm trying to get my slew of AM meds together, I don't have time to wait for the timely update that needs to happen weekly to look things up. This app needs the following things to support pediatric RNs: 1. D5.45NS+20KCl (and similar fluids) as a fluid compatibility option. 2. A link to the pediatric drug index from the home screen. (Too many clicks to find it) 3. Under specific drugs, a sub-menu similar to micromedex that allows you to click on each aspect of a drug (i.e. Dosing, interactions, adverse effects, pharmacokinetics, etc.) instead of having to scroll through a wealth of information to find specific things that are more simply broken down in other apps. 4. Auto update!! No one who works in direct patient care has time to wait for all the updates to happen in order to keep our patients safe. Also, most hospitals have poor cell phone service due to thick brick buildings and lead walls near radiology departments, making it impossible at times to even use the app because you can't update it. In sum, I prefer micromedex, but my hospital switched to Lexicomp. I use micromedex anyways, because it's more user friendly and doesn't take forever to update when I need information fast.
