Atai Okon, an information pharmacist from Nigeria has been visiting the UK on a Commonwealth Professional Fellowship programme organised by Partnerships in Health Information. As a part of her activities she has investigated Micromedex as a medicine information resource for pharmacists. This has been published in the Journal of EAHIL (European Association for Health Information and Libraries). Her study focuses on its usefulness to UK Schools of Pharmacy, but includes a good description of the database and its various sections e.g. information on medicines, drug interactions, toxicology and others. It also has mobile apps on android and iOS which come free with the subscription to the main database. Unfortunately the subscription is expensive.
