  • Great

    By ranmath
    Using it for 10-15 years in practice. Indispensable help in day to management of patients.
  • Most important app you will ever use

    By Doctd second one to use the ID
    Having been in clinical medicine in the role of internist for 25+ years, I used this app on a daily basis. I found it most helpful to keep current with the new meds even before I was able to be detailed by the company reps. Once when I was hospitalized, I was able to do "mini " rounds with the nurse caring for me that day. She downloaded the app and informed several of her colleagues of the usefulness of the app. She found the section on pill identification the most beneficial section of the app.

    I’m a Holistic Health Practitioner with various licenses in alternative medicine. It’s imperative that I understand my clients state of health and unfortunately, for an American adult over 35 to be drug free is relatively nil. I am always looking up drugs clients write in their intakes as side effects are unavoidable and I have to know what’s an organic physiological occurrence and one that is secondary to drug intake. I don’t know if any other source so comprehensive and thorough as Epocrates. The consistent updating is super. Thank you team Epocrates.
  • Epocrates, hand tool

    By keVip
    This is it. Perfect hand tool for residents, attending, medical students. One of few app that is worth to buy it.
  • Loads of free info

    By TLHaywood
    As a pharmacist, I use the free info all the time. I even recommend some parts to non-clinical friends. The dosing recommendations, interactions, adverse reactions, pill identification, pregnancy and lactation ratings, pharmacology are all very helpful and easy to access. Only thing I would change is the notifications that pop up when it opens about different articles. I would rather go to that tab myself when I’m ready. I would be more likely to read the articles that way. As it is I just delete them to remove the pop up.

    Stop with the pop ups. They are time consuming when you want to look up something quickly. Just keep it in the notifications. Otherwise keep up the good work.
  • Just basically good

    By MTM pdx
    Concise, easy to use format, mobile, accurate. My preferred option for quick checks. I do use othe more encyclopaedic options, but Epocrates remains my first choice for most medication searches.
  • No complaints

    As a retired family physician who volunteers at a clinic for uninsured I find Epocrates a valuable help.
