For more than 45 years, Micromedex has been one of the largest online reference databases for drug information. Used in more than 4,500 hospitals and health systems worldwide, Micromedex supports over 170 million document views annually. Micromedex facilitates evidence-based decision making in the areas of drug selection, disease and condition management, toxicology, and alternative medicine. It even addresses specific questions, such as dosing and IV compatibility.

Powered by Watson, IBM Micromedex uses AI to accelerate your access to information by bypassing the keyword search process in favor of natural language queries. This means you can type the way you talk, and get the answers you need.
