Epocrates review 4/5
Good quick comprehensive program. What happened to Differential Diagnosis program?
Generally this is a good program. I rate it 4 out of 5.
You still have to know what you’re doing, but... 5/5

Epocrates has made many improvements to its app. It is a helpful clinical tool.
Really nice App 4/5
By Saskatchewan Mac
The updated version has the “calculate dos option not working again.
Solid program though
Un install Epocrates 5/5
I paid for the renewal and still not installed if Is not installed will cancel it and call my credit card
Well written, organized, easy to research. Always my first stop for all the various kinds of information it provides. The app just keeps,getting better over time.
Pretty good 4/5
Not lexicomp but close
Most drugs available easily searchable portable unit 3/5

Big help 5/5
Quick and convenient
Review 5/22/19 3/5
By FAA Doc
Been a user since on Palm Pilot. Excellent,I use it daily . Critique: wish the side effects tab would list frequency of side effects. Also, pricing is disappearing from a lot of drugs. Now, the ads/pop ups/ banners were annoying but a fact of life if you are using free version like I do. Now that I know they are still present on the paid version I doubt I will ever upgrade, especially since I get CME credits using UpToDate!
By Lord Helmut
I have fantastic internet and constantly it switches to offline. This is really annoying. Especially with pill pictures. Why not let us predownload?
Epocrates an invaluable app 5/5
I have faithfully subscribed to Epocrates for almost 13 years. It has served me well. Information is at my finger tips. It is always current. Most importantly concise. I have referred many colleagues to Epocrates and have never heard anything but praise. Best part is it is only pennies a day. Cannot day enough! Thank you Epocrates.
Epicrates is a great app 5/5
This is the go to app and resource whenever I need information on any medication and drug interactions. Great work and I hope they continue to develop and update it.
Not a single day goes by without looking up in this app in my practice.
This app is priceless for us in the medical field.
Essential for medical professionals 4/5
Occasionally, infrequent freezes, otherwise great product.
What has happened to this app 1/5
It is painfully slow at times and it will stay frozen for several seconds before finally doing something! Never used to be like this!!
I use the app for my personal medications. I have CKD stage 4 so I have to be very cautious with all medications. In my professional use I found it very helpful.
Butabarbital is misspelled
Fast and easy 5/5
I love how I can look up and verify dosages and medications that are brand new on the market! Thanks Epocrates!!
Good program....suggestion for notifications 4/5
It would be more convenient if the notifications can be “swiped” to the left with option there to delete. Delete at the bottom of the screen is extremely awkward. Thanks for your consideration.
Often fails, hate notification screen 1/5
By Dr. Strobes
App often does not respond for many seconds after opening. I HATE the notification page. I pay for this and am very annoyed by obvious advertising. I will not be renewing my subscription. Medscape isn’t as good, but im not willing to stand for this any longer.
Would love to hav lab section to have favorites and maybe a indicator if you added a special note in a specific lab so when you pull that lab up in the future you see that you wrote a note in the lab and to open to review it
Offer a monthly subscription plan please! 4/5
I like using this app but cannot justify paying almost $200 upfront for using the app.
Best Medical App for regular use 5/5
By Paul Biggs
Barring ones that cost hundreds more...
No discernible financial bias found.
App could be better 3/5
I agree with cg483.
Maybe I should be looking at other apps since my subscription runs out in May.
By bob galleon
Great for quick review 5/5
By Mario Hala Madrid!!!!
Useful for students, arnps, MAs, PAs and docs for quick review. Love it. Used it since student. 10 years practicing and still use it. Can show my patients and families side effects, contraindications, etc
By Barbudo MD.
Have used daily in my practice, indispensable tool especially to review interactions and medications I am not familiar with.
Freezing issue 1/5
Freezes almost every time I open the app. I definitely would not upgrade to the paid version as it is useless most of the time due to the auto freezing. Very frustrating.
MD Psychiatrist 3/5
Good overall but interactions checker is very touchy and often has trouble adding additional drugs. I was advised to delete and reload the app but it’s no better.
Great clinical tool 5/5
I recently purchased Epocrates for my adult gerontology management class for NP school (as we were advised to do). At first I was hesitant due to the price of the this product. However, I’m glad I did! This tool is an absolutely amazing reference to use for my didactic program. It is quick and functional in the clinical setting while easy to access and reference for coursework. Could not imagine not using this tool!
This application is handy for students that do not have a lot of money to spent on reference sources.
Ever since I upgraded to the full version, the app constantly crashes and won’t even open!!
Now the entire app is worthless!
For years now I have relied on the Epocrates app because it is a quick and usually accurate source of information for medications commonly used in pediatrics.
My go to app for medications 5/5
I have used this since days of the palm pilot. It’s my go to app for medications. I use the pill identifier, dosing, and drug interactions most often.
Very good but 4/5
By Ehsan Shahmir
Very good specially for a free app. It’s OTC medication list is lacking and it doesn’t give the dialyzability of medications. Without the above issues it would have been perfect.
Obnoxious design 1/5
This app would be great to look up drugs, except every single time I open it, this stupid notifications screen pops up with stories that I don’t care about, and I have to wait 10 seconds before I can actually use the app. As a medical professional on the go, I don’t have time to wait forever to look at your ads every time I use a reference app. I recommend using an alternative. In fact, it is literally faster to get drug names using iPhones Safari web browser. Worthless.
Great info, poor app 2/5
Please fix the notification screen that shows up on every start which is a pain and really slows down its use. Really annoying. What a shame!
Great app, wish it had more 4/5
I love this app as an internal med physician, it is extremely useful. I wish there would be a section for medication overdoses. Just as we call the poison control and they tell us what to expect from a mild-moderate-severe overdose, I wish I could also rely on the app for similar info, not to substitute the poison control, but in addition, if I need to review common manifestations of overdose for further medical management.
Can't be without it! 5/5
By Steel Building
I have been in Family Medicine 38 years. The number of drugs and "me too" drugs has grown exponentially since I started med school in 1971. E-Pocrates is an outstanding service and I can't practice medicine with out it!
Frank J Rubino M D
174. Per year to google information 2/5
Yeah no. Maybe we should check the app to find what the developer was smoking
BEST APP FOR DENTISTS ! 5/5
This is the fastest way to check
Drug interactions that your patients are taking, as well as, informing them of some other possible problems; that way, YOU, the dentist/ oral surgeon NEVER prescribes a drug that will interact with your patients present medicines! Very important in this day and age ! THANK YOU EPOCRATES ! You are a great team of experts !
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.
