IMPORTANT notice from Uptodate RE: Drug interaction queries from May 20 to June 4

Please read this important notice from Uptodate and re-run the queries you made on drug interactions between May 20 and June 4 2014.

"CUSTOMER ALERT: Drug Interactions Query Issue:
Because of a technical issue associated with loading drug interaction data into UpToDate, some users that made interaction queries during the period from May 20, 2014 to June 4, 2014 may not have received potentially relevant drug interaction information for certain medications. This issue has now been fixed. Unfortunately, we are unable to identify the specific queries that were affected. As a result, we want to make all UpToDate users aware that they should re-run any interaction queries that they made during the May 20th to June 4th period to determine whether relevant potential interactions were not identified. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause." www.uptodate.com  [more]
