Good information and easy to use
Love Epocrates! Quick and easy to use, informative, drug drug interaction feature super helpful, phone savvy patients especially like to review side effects on an iPhone.
Med check 5/5
Great app for quick reference. Love it.
Indispensable App 5/5
In my Family Medicine career have used this app since I found it > 10 years ago. It has allowed me to provide better quality and more efficient care. Can’t imagine practicing without it. Only complaint is discontinuation of Medicare reimbursement ranges previously provided for various CPT codes. I haven’t found a comparable tool to replace that.
Excellent medical app.have had it x over 25 yrs.
Medical pronunciation 4/5
This app is great! I just wish they had a feature that helped with how to pronounce medications.:)
Unable to use 1/5
I can’t finish setting up my account because it blocks my ability to enter my occupation. The app takes me to a screen that says I need to have WiFi which I already do but it covers the occupation row to type in my information.
Great app 5/5
Great app allows you to research the drug and check for side effects
By Dr. TexMex
Good’ but what happened to the CPTs and the bug app?
COVID tile??? 4/5
I’ve used this app forever and love it. Today I got an email saying to update to get a COVID-19 tile, but nothing new appeared.
Outstanding APP 5/5
I’m a chain pharmacist.
I work alone 8PM to 8AM.
I value Epocrates for:
to verify the treatment options prescriber when patients are questioning their prescriber’s decision,
over-the-counter suggestions in addition to the prescriber’s prescription,
treatment options for unusual issues patient call about in the middle of the night,
Identifying pills (this is worth the cost of the app),
Verifying alternative medications when an insurance claims “the medication is not on the patient’s formulary,”
I suggest free Epocrates to many other prescriber’ s even we’ll established long timers because it is so valued, current, available on many platforms, free, and not expensive when someone decides to purchase it.
You get my support and thank you!
I used the Epocrates since 2001 and now I miss the cpt code area.
Love the app except for... 5/5
The notifications. Wish there was a way to modify notification settings.
Thank you! 5/5
This app helps me in my practice EVERY SINGLE DAY. Thank you. Greatly appreciated.
Opioid conversion calculator 3/5
The calculator doesn’t have a couple of opioids . They’re missing tramadol, tapentadol (Nucynta).

Epocrates provides succinct and precise information about drugs. The drug interaction tool is quick and useful. Thank you for making it available to the medical profession.
MUST HAVE APP IN THE ER 5/5
By A Serendipitous Find
I have been using it since it first came out, and I use it multiple times during the day in the ER. It saves a HUGE amount of time. Patients love it when I use it to search for drug interactions, pregnancy safety, confirm dosages. It is intuitive and very easy to use. I encourage all rotating medical students and Residents to have it, and to ask their families to get it for them for a Christmas gift instead of a shirt and tie. BEST app since apple pie.

Always Reliable 5/5
Thank you Epocrates. This is the only program I have used for more than 15 years now. It’s always quick and accurate. You’ve saved me a LOT of time and given me continuous confidence. Sorry it took so long to write a review.
Great app but missing CMEs 5/5
By Ryu daikaijin
It’s a great app and I use it daily but for the price, cme should be offered. Therefore I am staying with the free option after my free trial is over.
By huddie my cuddy
new update just sits there frozen and won’t respond to any input.
Great app. 5/5
This app supplies quick and up to date drug information.
By Jan Eyman
Super useful! Valuable information when you need it
I love this app. 5/5
I find the Epocrates app the most useful reference app available. I’m now retired 10 years, so it is even more central to my medical life.
Great for elderly parents 5/5
By angie goofball
If you are looking for Medication interactions for your elderly parents, it’s great for that as well.
Fantastic drug reference 5/5
By Barb in MI
It was our reference in nursing school, information is great and reliable source.
By Baba kunle
Epocrates is my consultant before I call the MD, so I can be ahead and knowledgeable about the situation before the MD says so, epocrates never fails me, is always on point with the first line of medications that will be prescribed ,thanks epocrates
Good content poor support. 1/5
I am paying for the premium app but currently I can’t access it. Customer support is by email only and response time is slow. It’s been four days and still no solution. Price is fairly high for this poor level of support.
Day seven and I still have no access to the app I have paid for. Customer support assures me they “are diligently working on this”. No ability to speak to anyone on the phone. Dismal support from this company.
Issue of crashing resolved 4/5
Issue of crashing has been resolved and now able to use.
Crashes Immediately 1/5
By p. messer
Won’t let me login or create account, crashes immediately. Very disappointed.
App Now Crashes On Open 1/5
Crashes every time it’s launched/opens. Can’t login even.
Freezes then crashes on open 1/5
By CJ Muria
Not sure what they did to this app but after years of using it, it's now freezing immediately upon opening then force closes. I've tried this on two separate devices with the same result. Used to be a sound tool for my practice, but its no longer a viable option, will no longer pay if desktop is the only format that works.
By P Maranon
I used the favorites feature during my clinical rotation to save the most used meds. When I switch my phone and downloaded the app everything in favorites disappeared. I had over 60 frequently used meds. I wish there were a way to save your favorites and access them from any device with your user name and password.
Simple Fast Easy to Use 💯 5/5
You will enjoy this if you appreciate information that is easy to find and very practical. Epocrates has had this down pat for years and Apple made it even better. All winners on this platform. I stay up to date simply because of this app. 👨🏻💻
Used daily 5/5
By Family Care Provider
This is and has been my “go to” app for medication use in primary care x 5+ years. Recent updates are very nice with calculator option given under pediatric dosing, this is very helpful.
The best app 5/5
Great app, could use dosing for kids 5/5
It’s the app I use at work. It has everything I need to know in one easy app.
Just wish they had help with dosing for kids. I see adults and very rarely do I see kids. So it would be great epocrates if you can add that. Plug in the kids weight in kg and their age, and have it calculate the dosage of the antibiotic or whatever Med you need. It allows me to double check what my calculation is and it also saves time.
Otherwise thanks for the app. It’s the best out there in my opinion.
Big Loss 4/5
I use Epocrates daily and have gotten very dependent on it. However, when they removed the CPT codes I was very disappointed. I used it more often than the drug information and REALLY miss it.
Epocrates is my go to app as a new Nurse Practitioner. It saves me time, which means more time with the patients! It gives me the confidence to practice the way I know I should. Would be lost without it.
Very useful 4/5
I use the app frequently, but as others have mentioned, I would prefer not to have the news feed show initially. The peds dose calculator is very helpful.
Dark mode 5/5
I have one wish for this app. Please support dark mode.
Pill identifier problems 2/5
Unable to find round pink pill labeled ELP5. Pill finder on Drugs.com correctly identified it as Enalapril Maleate 5mg.
Good for RN 5/5
By Andrii RN
I’m cardiology step down ICU RN. Very informative app, easy to find what I need for my job. Recommend to health care professionals.
It would be nice to have discount for multi year renewal. Otherwise, nice, helpful app.
I’ve used this app for years. Works great, my go to app for calculations like FENa, and finding doses and side effects of drugs. I read the negative reviews and I have no idea what they are talking about. It works great and I have found the information within accurate and updated. I no longer carry the pocket pharmacopoeia around with me like I did for 2 decades. Replaced by this app long ago.
i still want to have CPT in your menu
even outdated it was still helpful
Outstanding App 5/5
Epocrates is an indispensable App for medical professionals. I have used it for along time. Well designed and constantly updated.
Love this app! 4/5
Literally I use this app for work daily.
Great ap 4/5
I use it to verify interactions and side effects caused by the medications that various doctor prescribe. Many doctors miss the interaction .
Even the pill photo search is great.
Thanks for providing a good, uptodate product.
CWOCN RN 5/5
Use daily at work. It is a medical library for your lab coat pocket. Use it also to confirm coding questions. I love it.
