Still needs work 4/5
Use this app often. Has great information. Don't like that it wipes out all of my notes and things I had as favorites when I update. Also wish they would allow us to pin to home screen or favorite the calculators we use often, otherwise I have to go through three steps to get to the BMI calculator.
Save Interactions? 4/5
As a psychiatrist, I’m often looking up Interactions between a (relatively) small group of psychiatric medications and a (relatively) large group of all the other types of medication that my patients are taking. It might save some time if users could save some Interactions lists—or perhaps if info on interactions between/among classes of drugs (such as statins and SNRI’s) could be accessed. ERHmd
Great app, and free! 5/5
I use this for dosing and interaction information, and the pediatric maintenance fluid calculator. So easy and fast!
$175?!!! Health info should not be a profit driven 1/5
By Market Guru
Shameful that the full app is $175. Per year! How about some ethical and moral leadership from the makers of this app by showing the world you can still make a ... um ... health profit with pricing strategies that aren’t cost prohibitive to the majority of the population? Surely the bright minds behind this app can identify partner organizations to help make this happen? Imagine what could happen if you tamed your profit quest and instead prioritized people’s health and ability to understand more about it? THEN you would start rewriting history. Beginning with this app. Good luck!
I first had this on my Palm Pilot@! 5/5
By Lin Biao
1) it is Free! But it is an excellent resource. I use it in my work, case management for individuals with serious mental illnesses and long hx’s of numerous medications. The ability to get a quick picture of med interactions helps in advising clients in looking at choices. I also use it in my personal life—it also has the Oregon Health plan formulary—an extra plus!! I highly recommend it (and often do, with work peers and other service providers. Did I say that there is a free version?
Great app 5/5
I used this throughout medical school and residency. Great quick reference.
My only suggestion is to update the pregnancy dating calculator. Using decimal values for days is very confusing. Eg 4.7 weeks is not very helpful. Is that 4 weeks and 5 or 6 days? Otherwise, great app.
By Unfurled urn
A must have for clinicians, has a great peds dosing calculator that makes it fast and simple. No more converting pounds to kilograms, type in pounds and the strength you want to use and boom: you have your amoxicillin dose.
Tells you what the drug is for, what dose you should use and how to write the prescription. Can’t make it any easier.
No IV Drug Compatibility?! 1/5
By Chris Ljucovic
This app is useless for critical care units. I want to ensure the meds I’m ordering and/or administering are compatible in emergent situations. I believe this is a safety issue and should have been addressed a long time ago. I will not be using Epocrates again once my subscription is up, unless they add this critical feature, of course.
Crashing after the updated 1/5
Save yourself some headaches and do not upgrade. I can not get the app to work and it is constantly crashing after the update. I called them but they are closed for the weekend. Really????
FNP STUDENT 5/5
By Early Riser 4am
I absolutely love this app❤️It is a great tool for learning and teaching. I use it all the time. In fact I panic if I can't access it 😂 The one I am using is free!!! I can't wait to be able to afford to purchase this app; it's a small price to pay for the vast amount of information that is included. I am very grateful to those that took the time to develop this app and to those that keep the information up to date and available. THANKS GUYS, I love and appreciate each of you!!!
Excellent App 5/5
Great app with easy efficient access to medication information. Interaction checker very effective. Just a wealth of extremely helpful information. Using Epocrates on a daily basis. Well worth having with a very simple user friendly interface.
Absolutely Indispensable! 5/5
Great app! Have used it for 10 years & recommend it for my students. Thanks!
Highly recommended 5/5
By I am a PA, it needs a PA
Definitely an app for any recent PA graduates or practicing NP's.
Awesome App 5/5
Great app for what I need!
My go to app!
By Greenster 247
Love this app- Most of the info I am looking for in a brief synopsis
Love it . Add "favorites " to calculator section 4/5
Great app. I'm an FNP student and refer to this often. The latest update to the calculator section is fantastic, however , wish there was an option to favorite certain calculators for quicker access!
App recommendation 5/5
I do not see the pregnancy categories A, B, C, or D. Would you consider adding these to the app?
Essential tool 5/5
By HPM Doc
Must have app. Interaction checker in particular is useful. Would prefer if monographs & updates were a menu option rather than a forced screen. Also would like to see a non-paid consumer version, since too few docs check interactions.
Great app 5/5
Very useful app , it helped me a lot with my clinical rotations ,,,highly recommended
My go-to 5/5
By Tha Nurse
Recent NP school grad and I could not get through a clinical day without this app! I will be using this in practice for sure.
Nothing Like It 5/5
Been using ePocrates since "The Beginning".
Have found nothing comparable, having been a PA practicing ER, Nephrology, and Psychiatric Medicine the past 24 years‼️
Student Nurse Practitioner 5/5
Can't paste password. 2/5
I manage far too many long and complex passwords. The authors of this app have apparently seen fit to disable the ability to paste into the password field. A hostile way to block users and straightforward or secure user access.
Love it love it love it 5/5
This app is the best!! Thank you!!
Great App 5/5
I recently started working as a Pharmacy Tech and this app has been a life saver.
Good drug reference, too many calculators 3/5
I used to have a handful of calculators in my favorites that I used on a daily basis. It appears that this feature has been farmed out to a third party and calculators can no longer be saved in favorites. There are now so many calculators that that functionality is too cumbersome to use. have switched to another app when I need a calculator.
Makes doing our job much more efficient 5/5
Very useful app for dosage, side effects, drug interactions, costs.
Amazing app 5/5
Can't be without it in the medical field!
Not opening after updates in august 2017 4/5
After updating the app stopped working, it was working good for last 10 years
Always Awesome 5/5
By Girl Bartending
This is my go to application for drug information. Accurate, up-to-date, easy to navigate, I found nothing better. And plus it's free!
TS Harvey 5/5
Thank you. This is so vital for our clinic and what's going on with Houston with Harvey and the aftermath that is to come
Best formulary app out there 4/5
By Quinn’s 13" MacBook
The only reason I give this app 4/5 (really a 4.5/5) is because it still references ICD-9 codes instead of the updated ICD-10. Other than that I have no complaints at all. I personally enjoy the messenger service it provides too.
Great app 5/5
I depend on this so much in my internal medicine outpatient practice et al.
Very useful app for doctors. I use every day 5/5
Fácil referencia y muy actualizada. Siempre la utilizo. Easy reference and updated. I always use it.
Good but could be better 4/5
Generally works well. Wish more formularies were included. Other wishes - opioid conversion calculator, steroid equivalency calculator, ability to look up alternative meds without having to scroll through the entire list (really?!) or look up alternative meds with the general search.
Dr. Moser 5/5
Great app, use it everyday 👍
Requires creating a log in to do anything 1/5
There is no way to use this app without creating a log-in. That rates an instant one star.
Great quick reference. 5/5
By Gary Fire Department GI
Use this app all the time as a medic and new graduate RN.
Great quick reference. 5/5
By Wade P.
I'm in internal medicine physician if have used Parker tees for several years now. It's a great quick reference for looking up medications, there pharmacokinetics, their drug interactions, etc. Also the ability to look up CPT and ICD 10 codes and look up specific diseases at the tip of your poem is very useful. Are use it on a daily basis in my practice. The differential diagnosis feature is fair.
Great app 5/5
This app is vaer helpfull for us MD's
Useless unless you pay $180.00 a year 1/5
They don't tell you up front about a yearly fee. You don't buy this app. You rent it. Bait and switch. Very limited use until rental is paid. Don't waist your time can buy apps to do the same thing and not get ripped off on a yearly basis.
M D 5/5
It is a great site to review about meds
Love this ap but there are other things I'd like to see!! 5/5
I'd like to see more alternative meds that
Give safer meds esp those that go with opioids ! Also a list of safer opioids that combine with benzodiazepines .
Like it 5/5
This is so practical
Notification hell 1/5
I would absolutely subscribe to the premium versions of this app if it weren't for the constant notifications that pop-up seemingly every time I open the app. Drop them or at least let me disable them myself from a setting. Most of them are just semi-disguised ads anyhow. The rest are quizzes or other undesired, non-point of care tidbits that only serve as a distraction. At this rate it's not even worth using the free version. I'll stick to Medscape unless this is ever fixed.
Very useful 5/5
One of my go to apps working in the field. Make sure you keep it up dated while on a fast data connection though.
Always helpful and easy to find mess and interactions better than carrying a PDR around in every treatment room.
