Good app but.... 1/5
Good app, been using it daily but lately has been freezing or would not open. I’m not sure if the problem is with phone compatibility, I use the iPhone X.
App not working 1/5
As soon as app opened it immediately closes out!
Doesn’t open/crashes 1/5
Had no problems with this app until the last update... since then, app no longer opens. It will hang and then crash...
keeps crashing 1/5
By The RJR
app will not open just keeps crashing?
Most recent update renders app unusable 1/5
With the most recent update, the app doesn't load completely, and the partially blank screen is frozen. I know the app is the issue because it's happening on 2 different phones.
Freezes over 1/5
Annoying! I pay full price. I expect full service.
Pharmaceutical bias over EBM 1/5
Information presented in notification section, promoted as informational/educational are primarily supported and sponsored by the individual pharmaceutical manufacturers that benefit financially from the medications.
This makes the accuracy of information questionable
Great App. Have been using it for years. Great support as well
By Tired, poor, student
Paid for upgrade. Still no access. Contacted developer and they said they are working on the issue. Several users. I have an iPhone 6, not sure if it’s just with iPhone users. Have spent several hours trying to resolve issue. $174 (187 after tax) down the drain. Don’t waste your money. It’s a shame they are even letting people still purchase the upgrade whilst knowing they won’t have access.
Unresponsive after latest update 2/5
This app is so helpful, but the most recent update has made it completely unresponsive on my iPhone X. This was corrected with a hard reset of the device.
Don’t waste your money 1/5
Paid the $170 for the plus version. Literally unlocked nothing on my phone. It still shows like I have the free version but it went ahead and charged me for the $170
Don’t upgrade 1/5
I upgraded through ITunes, paid $190 for plus. And have no access to it. Do NOT upgrade through iTunes, go to epocrates. Because I feel like I just blew $190 as I have not heard back from them.
Used to be great... 2/5
Now crashes constantly to the point of being unusable on my iPhone 8 with iOS 11. Have updated app and tried reinstalling it without resolution.
Stopped Working 1/5
A great app until this last update. Now it is frozen. It boots but wii not move from the opening screen. What I considered a five star app does not warrant a one star rating. If it ever works again, it will probably be back to five stars.
I would love it if this was usable on my IWatch.
Profit motive is what makes us productive 4/5
Thank you for making a good product. The trader principle is win-win.
Liquid dosing 2/5
With the most recent update, I am unable to calculate the liquid dose for children’s meds. Otherwise this is a wonderful app that I depend on regularly! I have the free version of Epocrates.
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!
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
