Customer Reviews of the Medscape App

Ads are ridiculous!!

I love Medscape; it’s a great resource at my fingertips. Lately, however, I can’t read one sentence without having ads insert themselves directly into the text I’m trying to read. Getting information is much more time consuming, trying to re-find the spot where I was reading because the ads move the text! This must be resolved or I will have to find another resource.

Honestly I can’t even read a single section without the ads popping up between text or taking over the whole page. I’ve used medscape for years and I didn’t mind the one or two ads here or there but this is downright obnoxious and makes the app unusable. Either make an affordable ad-free version (not a subscription) or reduce the intrusive ads. Please. For the sake of healthcare providers who use this, don’t make me switch to a different source.

Garbage ads

The app has become complete garbage. It’s impossible to scroll through any information because new ads pop up and appear out of nowhere. Advertising is one thing, but this makes your product unusable.

Drug incompatibility error

Medscape says milrinone and Lasix drip are both compatible but hospital's micro Medix says incompatible. I have emailed them twice with no response. Except a robot saying they received my email. As a nurse I need to know whether it's compatible or not and be able to trust this app. I especially now don't trust it due to the lack of response. It has now been over a month.

Clinical Practice Guidelines don’t load in latest update!

AndrewLinares's Review of Medscape

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:32 PM

I am like this app a lot, but there are some things that are holding me back from using it daily. In my previous review I mentioned that there was no way to send articles via text message and there was no way to save articles for later. A developer responded that there was a way to save articles for later, which is true except in certain circumstances. If you search for an article or click on any article after opening the app, you can save it for later. However, if you get push notification about a story that you might like and you click on it, it does not give you the option to save it for later. I would use this app much more frequently if these two features were in it. I currently almost don’t use it at all because I can’t share through text message. Other than that it’s a great resource and I hope it continues to improve in the future

Conflicting information?

In general, I like this as a drug reference, especially because I can look up supplements and OTCs as well as rx meds. However, I used it a couple days ago to check for any drug interactions between rivaroxaban and glucosamine/Chondroitin. The app reported no interactions found. Fast forward one day, and there is a published article on Medscape warning of drug interactions between prescription medications and OTC supplements. And what do you know, one of the examples is that glucosamine/Chondroitin taken with rivaroxaban increases risk of bleeding. There’s obviously disparity between what your app is reporting and what your published article on your website report says. It certainly doesn’t boost confidence in using your app to check for drug interactions with patients.

Political-NOT-Medical

E.j.Teegarden's Review of Medscape

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:32 PM

This app used to be great for quick references. Sadly, this app now fills your inbox with very biased politically slanted emails. When I attempted to get ahold of the developer or anyone from its service regarding this (because THEY WOULDN'T STOP EVEN AFTER I UNSUBSCRIBED!!!), nobody ever responded. This is UNETHICAL to say the very least and far from professional. Regardless of political view, nobody wants it in the work place, ESPECIALLY in the medical profession. BOTTOMLINE: because this app is now something else than it claims to be, it continues emails and WONT DELETE ACCOUNT, and THERE IS ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP - ESPECIALLY TO THE Medically-minded.

Asst. to the Regional Manager's Review of Medscape

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:32 PM

As an MS-3 on the cusp of wrapping up my third year, I have to say this was my GO TO reference source for clinical rotations. A lot of people will say resources like UpToDate and Epocrates are the gold standards, and while they are incredible, neither possesses the ease of use, scope of information, or clinical tools that this app has. I have a paid subscription to those other sources through my school, but this is essentially the only reference I use and it’s completely free for anyone. I would 100% recommend this app to anyone and you better believe I won’t be without it next year, as a resident, or as an attending.
