The Drug Reference App is a subset of the full Micromedex site. It contains summary drug information on over 4,500 terms. New drug information content is available approximately every four weeks. Information about each drug can include: adult and pediatric dosages, dose adjustments, adverse effects, drug interactions, pregnancy, and more.

Information that is available in the full Micromedex site, but not the mobile app includes: drug IDs, drug comparisons, ingredient duplication, and drug references.
