  • Not what I expected

    By imagingergirl
    Really you could not even identify a potassium pill I did every which way according to the pill and the bottle. And you still could not identify it.
  • What a waste!

    By Daveonlincoln
    I’m a Parkinson’s Disease patient wit COPD and AFib. I take 15 separate medications, all daily..some of them five and six times a day. I’m an intelligent, educated man with a very vertical brain that still at 77 works just fine, thank you. So here’s the thing..I endeavored,on your app, to find each & every one of the 15 Rx’s, being very, very careful about inputting the correct alphanumerics, with a helper cross-checking. Want to know how many we found? Zero! None! Nada! Zip! You guys are pathetic. David Martin Berkeley, CA
  • Use This App. Di_Pinky is correct

    By Oregon Rain Salesman
    I wife was in the hospital and after surgery we had continuous problems with the medication that she was told to take. After checking each medication we would call the nurse back in and get the list corrected. They were using an old medication list from five years prior, mixed with a fresh medication list from a phone interview with a nurse from the hospital just a week before the surgery. That interview was 45 minutes long and covered even holistic and across the counter meds. In my opinion, the hospital has no excuse for messing this up so bad. And, to top it off, she was in the intensive care ward with the best professionals available. What does that make you feel like? Check your pills!!
  • Very poor. Only able to choose one color for the pill when it had two color. Waste of money.

  • 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

    What a waste of my time. RECOMENDED: DO NOT BUY THIS APP.
  • Didn’t find my pill

    By Gregorio2011

  • 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?
