Micromedex Overview

- A comprehensive drug-based resource also spanning diseases, acute care, toxicology, alternative medicines, and patient education materials.

- Provides ability to factor in alternative medicines and allergies into drug interaction searches.

- Provides ability to build side-by-side drug comparisons.


- Includes full-text drug information including drug overviews, adverse effects, drug interactions.

- Find CareNotes (handouts for patients) on drug/disease/lab tests topics. Mayo-approved for patient distribution. English & Spanish versions.


- Best for broad single term searching - e.g., if looking for information on the adverse effects of coumadin, start your search by typing the single word, coumadin, in the search box; then select Adverse Effects from the Summary Information.

- References are included for the drug monographs, but are usually not the most recent and don't link into PubMed or another database.
