I used to love epocrates to look up drug interactions and descriptions while running calls on the ambulance. Unfortunately, when the app opens to the main screen now, I can't do anything. I am unable to scroll or tap on anything, including the search bar. This has been occurring for at least a month now. I'm getting a new phone in a few days, so I'll try it again then and will update if anything changes.

As an NP, I havr used this app for nearly 4 years. 5 stars on content! I have appreciated how up to date the info has been. HOWEVER, following my most recent renewal there are DAILY updates and syncing that take anywhere between 30 min to, currently, an hour and still waiting. Very frustrating. I have been delayed in caring for my patients every single day. If this does not change, I will cancel and find something else.

Since the new upgrade I am no longer able to search for a topic & get any results. It keeps saying that it is updating or syncing but it has been doing this for days. I paid for this app & many of the features are no longer working. I can't search diagnosis to look up treatments. This app is useless to me, how can we fix this. I have even tried restarting my phone & that didn't work. Decided to uninstall the app & reinstalled it, but now it really is not working won't even finish download!
