  • Great app, and free!

    By NNA1013
    I use this for dosing and interaction information, and the pediatric maintenance fluid calculator. So easy and fast!
  • $175?!!! Health info should not be a profit driven

    By Market Guru
    Shameful that the full app is $175. Per year! How about some ethical and moral leadership from the makers of this app by showing the world you can still make a ... um ... health profit with pricing strategies that aren’t cost prohibitive to the majority of the population? Surely the bright minds behind this app can identify partner organizations to help make this happen? Imagine what could happen if you tamed your profit quest and instead prioritized people’s health and ability to understand more about it? THEN you would start rewriting history. Beginning with this app. Good luck!
  • I first had this on my Palm Pilot@!

    By Lin Biao
    1) it is Free! But it is an excellent resource. I use it in my work, case management for individuals with serious mental illnesses and long hx’s of numerous medications. The ability to get a quick picture of med interactions helps in advising clients in looking at choices. I also use it in my personal life—it also has the Oregon Health plan formulary—an extra plus!! I highly recommend it (and often do, with work peers and other service providers. Did I say that there is a free version?
  • Great app

    By Luigizbro
    I used this throughout medical school and residency. Great quick reference. My only suggestion is to update the pregnancy dating calculator. Using decimal values for days is very confusing. Eg 4.7 weeks is not very helpful. Is that 4 weeks and 5 or 6 days? Otherwise, great app.
  • Mandatory

    A must have for clinicians, has a great peds dosing calculator that makes it fast and simple. No more converting pounds to kilograms, type in pounds and the strength you want to use and boom: you have your amoxicillin dose. Tells you what the drug is for, what dose you should use and how to write the prescription. Can’t make it any easier.
  • No IV Drug Compatibility?!

    By Chris Ljucovic
    This app is useless for critical care units. I want to ensure the meds I’m ordering and/or administering are compatible in emergent situations. I believe this is a safety issue and should have been addressed a long time ago. I will not be using Epocrates again once my subscription is up, unless they add this critical feature, of course.
  • Crashing after the updated

    By Morgansito
    Save yourself some headaches and do not upgrade. I can not get the app to work and it is constantly crashing after the update. I called them but they are closed for the weekend. Really????

    By Early Riser 4am
    I absolutely love this app❤️It is a great tool for learning and teaching. I use it all the time. In fact I panic if I can't access it 😂 The one I am using is free!!! I can't wait to be able to afford to purchase this app; it's a small price to pay for the vast amount of information that is included. I am very grateful to those that took the time to develop this app and to those that keep the information up to date and available. THANKS GUYS, I love and appreciate each of you!!!
  • Excellent App

    By Saintly008
    Great app with easy efficient access to medication information. Interaction checker very effective. Just a wealth of extremely helpful information. Using Epocrates on a daily basis. Well worth having with a very simple user friendly interface.
  • Absolutely Indispensable!
