Lab section 4/5
By Send it bros
Is there a way a search bar could be added into the lab section? Like the medication and disease section?
Version 18.12.1 updates annoying 4/5
By Rosie skies
App was great until newest auto update version 18.12.1. Now every time I open the app, I can’t access anything because “content is being updated”. Updates used to happen in the background. Not happy with new update program.
I love epocrates, however it will not open, it shuts down every time I try to open it. Not a problem until today
Great app, but not working for the past week 1/5
By Dr Connie
App is currently crashing every time I try to open it. Restarted phone to no avail. Currently using on iPhone XR. Hardly makes me want to continuing paying a premium for an app that doesn’t work. Please fix!
Outstanding App 5/5
I’ve had this app for years and it’s unparalleled when compared to other similar apps. I recommend it to all students with whom I have contact with; and I find most have anyway, and love it.
By PT in Ohio
I use this app from time to time to look up medications I’m not familiar with for patients. I’m a therapist so I run into different medications at times and find it helpful to look them up. It is a quick source. However, it could use some adjustments to the look to make it easier to look up drugs.
Long time user - resent problems 5/5
I have used this app for years, first when it was on a Palm Pilot. It has always been so useful. However in the last year it is less responsive, I can’t get the cursor to appear at the search line. I have to keep restarting it. The news keeps popping up when I’m in a hurry (during patient care). Loved you guys for years, please don’t let me down.
Solid Reference 5/5
I am an ICU nurse and Epocrates is now used by almost all of our team...docs included. The reason that it is as widely used for us is because it parallels the hospitals system drug comparison...only 100x faster and 200x more convenient. Not only does Big “E” update regularly but also adds the “oh gee whiz” quiz of various exotic conditions for study and research. While to some medical providers this seems trite..but we have run into many of those exotic diseases and love to know big “E” is standing by! Thanks
Best App Ever! 5/5
By Cool Kam.
Very useful app for healthcare professionals; you get to have access to any drugs and diseases info at the fingertips!
By Fab Uch
Very very good especially for students in medical and pharmaceutical field and even for nurses 👍👍👍
Bugs ??? 2/5
My frequncey tab is grayed out on my prescribing page for medications? I'm in pediatrics, so a frequncey tab is necessary 99% of the time.
Perfect go to for up to date evidence based medical information.
Love my Epocrates! 5/5
I use Epocrates every day. I find the ICD-10 feature extremely helpful. Simply could not function without Epocrates.
Epicocrates is always in use in my office on a daily basis 5/5
By Fountain of youth Doc
The doctors and NPs use it to quickly look up drug doses, interactions, prices and side effects. This app makes a visible difference in how my practice BioBalance Health practices medicine.
My wish list is for Epocrates to have all available drugs like Armour thyroid, and nature thyroid as well as list all available compounded drugs.
A nice time saver would be to include the name phone and address of all medical doctors, hospitals and surgery centers in. Each city in the US. Since the blue book went away finding referral doctors is very difficult!
Useful and free and fast 5/5
By Piggie Sue Killer
My only complaint is it should have meds not available in the United States grayed out or ones that are no longer available. It wastes time picking the right med sometimes. Otherwise the ADR and SE are clearly listed and the drug drug interaction check is easy to use and fairly complete most of the time. I don’t know if a more useful free app on the iPhone that does everything it does. I would recommend it for everyone who wants or needs to be better informed.
Skin reactions, some serious, are not infrequent. They are not mentioned under adverse reactions. They are related to the dye, etc. in the tablets, not to T3 itself. Special compounding is usually required. I suggest you add this to your list of adverse reactions.

Concise information on my fingertips 5/5
I use this all the time and helps me extremely.
Love this app! However would like more ICU/CRITICAL care content such as the sepsis guidelines. Thanks!
By WOO HOO GIRL 1
Please add lactation as part of your app!! This would make it a 5 star
Using it for 10-15 years in practice. Indispensable help in day to management of patients.
Most important app you will ever use 5/5
By Doctd second one to use the ID
Having been in clinical medicine in the role of internist for 25+ years, I used this app on a daily basis. I found it most helpful to keep current with the new meds even before I was able to be detailed by the company reps.
Once when I was hospitalized, I was able to do "mini " rounds with the nurse caring for me that day. She downloaded the app and informed several of her colleagues of the usefulness of the app. She found the section on pill identification the most beneficial section of the app.
I’m a Holistic Health Practitioner with various licenses in alternative medicine. It’s imperative that I understand my clients state of health and unfortunately, for an American adult over 35 to be drug free is relatively nil. I am always looking up drugs clients write in their intakes as side effects are unavoidable and I have to know what’s an organic physiological occurrence and one that is secondary to drug intake. I don’t know if any other source so comprehensive and thorough as Epocrates. The consistent updating is super. Thank you team Epocrates.
Epocrates, hand tool 5/5
This is it. Perfect hand tool for residents, attending, medical students.
One of few app that is worth to buy it.
Loads of free info 5/5
As a pharmacist, I use the free info all the time. I even recommend some parts to non-clinical friends. The dosing recommendations, interactions, adverse reactions, pill identification, pregnancy and lactation ratings, pharmacology are all very helpful and easy to access. Only thing I would change is the notifications that pop up when it opens about different articles. I would rather go to that tab myself when I’m ready. I would be more likely to read the articles that way. As it is I just delete them to remove the pop up.
Stop with the pop ups. They are time consuming when you want to look up something quickly. Just keep it in the notifications.
Otherwise keep up the good work.
Just basically good 5/5
By MTM pdx
Concise, easy to use format, mobile, accurate. My preferred option for quick checks. I do use othe more encyclopaedic options, but Epocrates remains my first choice for most medication searches.
No complaints 5/5
Very helpful guide 5/5
As a retired family physician who volunteers at a clinic for uninsured I find Epocrates a valuable help.
FNP-BC PMHNP-BC 5/5
I run a drug drug interaction with this app on every patient. I started using it as a student and would not go to work without it. Best app on the market.
No adds please 4/5
It is a great tool for a busy physician in practice. But really don’t like the pop up messages. It just delays the process.
Practical, quick and helpful 5/5
Handy reference for quick look up of medications
By prashant parikh,MD
Amazing. I enjoy all drug dosages. Thanks
Not suitable for emergencies 1/5
By Rambling Russian
Every once in a while requires to log in again and spend many minutes “checking for updates” during which time it’s unusable. This means that occasionally you might not have info available in an emergency. Terrible design for an app that aims to be the go to for drug reference for clinicians. Why can’t the update happen in the background and allow for uninterrupted use?
pregnancy/ lactation Category B 3/5
Good description for cautions for Pregnancy/ Laction, would appreciate preface Cat: C or B or appropriate summary letter. Thanks
Very good 5/5
Simple to use and good info. Love the pill ID. It’s a go-to.
Great app 5/5
There is a wealth of information at my fingertips.
Everything Great 4/5
All that I inquired about was explained were I
Can understand all. Thank you Leocez
I paid for this app but I’m getting ads. I do not appreciate that.Hence 3stars.Otherwise very useful.Easy to search for medications and conditions. Glad it has an ICD10 list. Get rid of the ads plz.
No where on this app does it list a cost to download and use. However, if you’re quick enough to catch it, a monster price of $175 will flash for only a moment as it downloads. Nowhere does it ask permission to charge you. User be ware. I will cancel this as soon as I can. What a ripoff to secretly charge through the back door. Cancel Cancel cancel
Doctor and patient each need complete medication list!! 5/5
By 52 years experience
DOCTOR -- Always go over the med list!
PATIENT -- Always keep a complete list and bring it to every encounter!
By The Chelster
This app never lets me down. Fast, easy. Well delineated. My only complaint is that the drug price is only present in about 33% of drugs that I look up.
Can’t be lie e what I paid for this... 1/5
Can’t believe I paid 174.00 bucks for an app that won’t boor, freezes, and crashes all the time. It’s fine when it works, but that’s almost never. I need something that works fast!!
AVOID, AVOID 1/5
I have used this app for years. It used to be a great app for medications, calculators and tables. This new version is so, so bad. It crashes every time I open it. When it is working, before the crash, it is cumbersome to use and time consuming.
I used the app for all of 10 minutes before I became disgusted with it’s performance. The old version was way better.
Will need to look for another app since this is so bad now.
A bit of a pain 2/5
By Mike ip6s+
The way this app updates data when you go to use it, is a Pia.
The alerts in the way when I go to search for something specific, are a bit annoying as well.
PK levels and timing don't seem to be there.
I switched to Medscape and was instantly surprised at the entire concept and great information.
Great App 5/5
By S Boyer
I’m a pharmacist and I’ve been using Epocrates for years. I first started because it was free. It was and I believe, still is,the best app for drug information available for free. While I was practicing I upgraded for a while but now I’m retired and the free version is fine although if I had the money I would definitely upgrade to at least have the information on OTC meds! Thanks Epocrates
By Libby Lou NP
I love this app! I find it’s money well spent to have the full subscription. I wish there was a way to get CEU credit through reading the topics and updates though!
Great app, user friendly. Bring back DDX! 5/5
FM here. Love Epocrates! This is a great app-I use it nearly daily to check medications, med interactions/SEs, pill pictures, etc. I also check the news feed quite regularly which is very helpful to stay up-to-date. And it’s user friendly. I wish they would bring the differential diagnosis tab back!
Great info, poor app 2/5
The current version gets frozen every time I try to open it! Many similar problems with the app over the past few months! And the fact that you get a notification screen on every start up when the app DOES work is a pain and really slows down its use. What a shame!
Perfect, except.... 5/5
The app would be perfect if that news feed did not open every time I open the app. Sometimes, I am in a rush because I’m juggling patients. There should be a way to change that in the settings. We receive plenty of journals and newsfeeds from other sources. App developer please listen, we don’t purchase your app for newsfeeds. Aside from that one issue, this app is a great utility for the med student, resident or seasoned physician. I highly highly recommend it to all of my colleagues
