Changes to Lexicomp – what you need to know

The University of Manitoba Libraries maintains a subscription to Lexicomp online which includes access to the databases Lexi-drugs and AHFS Essentials. Lexicomp online also provides access to tools such as,lexicomp-logo

  • the drug interaction checker,
  • IV compatibility tool and
  • drug ID tool.

Notable changes have been made to access via the Lexicomp mobile app. Currently, users can access the core drug database, Lexi-drugs, using the app. However users will no longer be able to access tools such as the drug interaction checker, IV compatibility tool and drug ID tool via the app. Some drug interaction information is available through individual monographs.
