  • Don’t buy- phone chrome version better

    By TL go
    Used the pill identifier from drugs.com found on chrome search for years and loved it, so thought that this app would be as good. It is terrible! Pills that you find on the search app are not here. As soon as you type in an identifier you can’t use color and shape so get plethora of pills to choose from. I am deleting it from my phone.
  • Pill Identifier. Kit D Kat 100

    By Kit D Kat 100
    I have enjoyed your Pill Reminder app. But am disappointed with this Pill Identifier. I paid $ for this one and it doesn’t show all medications. Only popular ones such as narcotics. I had gotten Pill Reminder in app advice a couple years ago or so and I LOVE IT. PLEASE fix this one so I can see all medications for USA thanks, Kit D Kat 100

  • Waste of Money

    By Kdub2836
    Very few manufacturers listed. No features other than search. I want my money back.
  • Iphone X issue

    By LTC pharmacist
    I love it because I use this app all day at work. I just got a new phone, the iPhone X, and now can’t see the drug name when I get the search results. Please fix?

  • OMG What I help this has been!!

    By Di_Pinky
    I must to give this app a five star rating I believe it has saved my life!!! Recently I was in the hospital and from the hospital transferred to a rehabilitation facility, The hospital was of course very cautious with the medication they gave me and told me what each pill was that they were giving me unfortunately when transferred to the rehabilitation facility it became a nightmare!!! I felt like I had stepped into the twilight zone!!! These people the nurses which I'm being very nice calling them that would hand me a cup of medicine & I would ask what is this and they would say it's your high blood pressure medicine and your seizure medicine so as soon as the nurses back was turned I checked the medication numbers and identifying marks that were on the tablets and discovered that they were not giving me my medicine, as prescribed by my doctor but we're giving me Tylenol #3 & A medicine for low blood pressure so in fact they could have killed me by doing this!!! So I was able to check the app identify the medicine and not take it and so I am alive to write this review!!!! Also was in the hospital last year , where the exact same thing happened and again I checked this app to identify the tablets and they were not my prescribed medication but rather belonging to another patient!!! If I could I would give this app 1000 star rating you guys save my life two times how do I thank you????
  • Accurate

    By AngelEyes5786
    Very accurate, as a medical professional I always check behind pharmacies after my meds are filled because you never know when the form or shape of them changes, so this is an accurate tool to use to ensure the meds are legit and the pharmacy techs are/have filled your meds accurately...human error and mistakes can and do happen and this tool stays up on the latest technology with any new changes that come about with medicine and gives a thoroughly detailed analysis of what it is and how it looks along with basic instructions for administering and any warnings or side effects to consider before taking.
