  • 1 year ago: New App Version 1.76.0 ☛ 1.77.0

Constantly wants to renew my subscription for more money. Makes it difficult while working on a Pt.

Not opening!

Im upset that I paid for this app and previously used it quite a bit and now it just shuts down on me when I try to open it. Please fix this!!

Expired subscription?

I cant use the app, it says my subscription has expired. What a waste of money...

Updates EVERYTIME the app opens (even if never closed)

Back to the issue where it updates, then forces you to login with username/password each time you use. I cant remember the random mix of characters that it generates for forgot password other than refering to the email. I enter it, then a few hrs later it asks for it again. I searched all over the website and see no spot to change to logical password. I refuse to enter a password to view a drug on shift in busy ED. Ive given up on this app after using it for 3 years because of multiple similar issues. Epocrates never was great, but it works!!!!

Awful !

Every time I open this crap app, it checks the updates and then it updates itself. Then it signs me out automatically so I must re-enter my username and password again. This issue is ridiculous. Its nonsense, and absurd. I hate your recent version! I wont repurchase after my license have ended. I prefer using expensive Lexicomp than using Micromedex! Its a shame you do not trust your clients!

Need pay more offline

Need to pay per year for IV compatibility, Drug interaction like Micromedex drug reference Essentials ( not have an internet-based)


Every time I go to use this app, I have to restore my username and password, and it says I wont be required to enter my username and password each time I open the app. Problem is, i DO have to enter it each time because this keeps occurring! Once upon a time I used to never have to put this information in. Youre pushing me to Epocrates, Truven!!!
