PDRN1's Review of Epocrates

Reviewed on 9/8/18 9:09 PM

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.

Any time I want to learn about a medication or vaccine, I consult Epocrates. You can even see pictures of the pills! It’s a really good resource.

FNP-Imed's Review of Epocrates

Reviewed on 9/26/18 5:57 PM

The full purchased version: I use this daily for quick answers on antibiotic recs and durations. Also if I want the quick and dirty update about a disease or illness I like the summaries available with supportive care or discussion of work up needed. This great if in a rush between patients or even with a patient of needing to look up drug side effects they may be experiencing. Vital to look up drug interactions. Of course not as in depth as up to date, but most of the time has the simple answer you need.

Update makes it cumbersome

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

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.

SciFi7's Review of Epocrates

Reviewed on 8/7/18 1:47 PM

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.

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

Churl h's Review of Epocrates

Reviewed on 8/21/18 7:55 PM

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

I’m still subscribed to the Plus level. I continue to receive Free level service. Anybody going to address this problem?

Dana7007's Review of Epocrates

Reviewed on 7/9/18 4:25 PM

I’ve always been a huge fan of Epocrates. It has offered detailed drug and disease info in an easily-accessible format. For the last few months, the app stalls when launched, and crashes frequently. It’s really not usable as it is now. Epocrates support only says that they are aware of the problem with iPhones, and they are looking into a solution. I am now looking into other options.
