  • My go to app for medications

    By Mdgwind
    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

    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

    By Greg789
    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

    By Lunash
    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

    By DRNSK
    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!

    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! Thank You, Frank J Rubino M D
  • 174. Per year to google information

    By User98349
    Yeah no. Maybe we should check the app to find what the developer was smoking

    By coltom
    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

    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

    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.
