  • Update makes it cumbersome

    By Not getting my shows
    Have used this app in my practice for years on my ipad. New update no longer allows scrolling down through all topics. Instead you have to exit and enter each topic. Takes more time and fragments what you remember. I will be looking for a different app.
  • Best drug information app

    By pinaydr
    I had been using this app for many years and it is my go-to app to look up a drug interaction. Very handy. Use it everyday. Lately it has been freezing and I am having to close the app and reopen. Or get my iPad instead. I hope this can be fixed soon.
  • Good App

    By PDRN1
    I love this App for the Interaction Check, but my only complaint is there are very few Vitamins Listed and Herbal supplements, so I’m unable to check their interactions with prescribed meds. I’m an RN who sees that more and more patients are taking OTC supplements. PLEASE add these to you medication lists and this would be 5 stars. Example, Tumeric is very popular now, and it can thin your blood. People need to know this who take other anticoagulants or anti-platelet medications. I’m sure there are way more supplements that can cause specific reactions with prescribed medications and other supplements.
  • Freezing

    By BMichaels
    I have use the packer days for a long time. Really appreciate having the accurate data base at my fingertips. However over the last couple of months it will lock up. Very frustrating.
  • Freezing and crashing

    By Churl h
    For the last month or so, maybe the last update, about 50% of the time the app freezes or crashes, requiring me to quit the app and restart it. This essentially removes the ability for this app to work as a point of care tool. I am paying for a subscription to this. Making sure the application works is a baseline expectation. I am going to delete the app and reinstall and hopefully that will make life better, but I’m really not happy with how this app has changed in the last 2 years. Increasingly complicated menus and listings and it’s harder and harder to find what I want.
  • Still waiting

    By Kintutz
    I’m still subscribed to the Plus level. I continue to receive Free level service. Anybody going to address this problem?
  • Love Hate Relationship

    By SciFi7
    I have used Epocrates for a long time, and have relied on it to take care of patients; but over the years they certainly have lacked an unwavering commitment to a quality product that won’t interrupt your workflow on a busy day when you’re taking care of patients. The latest shenanigan are pharmaceutical banner advertisements, even though I pay an annual fortune for this product. Sadly, that’s something I will no longer be doing & am switching to an alternative source.

  • Missing DDX

    By NP Iowa
    I miss not having DDX. The program gives ideas & expands my thought process. I really miss this. Please consider putting it back into Epocrates.

    I have used ePocrates since I was a student NP in 2006 and will use it 90% of the time as my go to for all questions I have in practice. Second to UpToDate, this is my go to!
