What is Micromedex?

Micromedex is a suite of databases offering comprehensive drug, disease and toxicology information for health care professionals and patients.   DRUGDEX,  POISINDEX and  TRISSELS  IV Compatibility are all databases within Micromedex that Victorian Public Hospital employees have access to.  

DRUGDEX is the database within Micromedex that contains drug information - it is evidence-based, fully-referenced, and covers FDA-approved and investigational prescription and nonprescription drugs, as well as non-U.S. preparations.  Information is organized into sections and may include: dosage, pharmacokinetics, cautions, interactions, clinical applications, adverse effects, comparative efficacy, drug of choice information, and orphan drug status.

POISINDEX  identifies ingredients for hundreds of thousands of commercial, pharmaceutical, and biological substances. Each substance is linked to one or more management documents providing information on clinical effects, range of toxicity, and treatment protocols for exposures involving the substances.

TRISSELS IV Compatibility identifies potential risks when multiple parenteral drugs and solutions are combined.
