The Drug Interactions App is a subset of the Drug Interactions tool found on the full Micromedex site. One or more drugs can be entered. Drug-drug interactions will be displayed, categorized by severity: contraindicated, major, moderate, or minor. Information that is available in the full Micromedex site, but not the mobile app includes: other interactions such as drug-food and drug-allergy, detailed literature review of interactions, and references.
