YOU must fill in the gaps when it comes to your healthcare ★★★★★
April, 2013 "YOU must fill in the gaps when it comes to your healthcare and this is one tool to help you. Without going into too many details let me share my experience. I was having serious problems that I believed were caused by side effects from one of my 7 meds. My Dr. had no clue as to which med. or meds could be causing my problems. I was actually frightened by my doctors lack of knowledge on ANY of my meds including the ones he prescribed! Using this app. and verifying the info using other sources, I determined that the problem was caused by an accumulative effect of all the meds. In my case with my doctors' guidance I was able to change or alter doses of my meds. These days with the number of patients that doctors see, there may not be time for them to research your problem and their knowledge may be lacking from the start. Sometimes you have to do the detective work to find your problem."
April, 2013 "This App is great. It give more information than the doctor ever will."
VERY USEFUL & CONVENIENT ★★★★★
April, 2013 "I use this app DAILY at work. It is so convenient & provides adequate & accurate info! :)"
Great pharmacy app ★★★★★
April, 2013 "Quick and easy. I use it every day at my job as a LTC pharmacist."
Pocket Rx ★★★★★
April, 2013 "This is an excellent app. I am taking many medications and this is a great tool to show doctors/facilities what I'm taking and also allows me to see which have problems with interacting and what cautions come with any particular medicine. It seems that many who create or maintain invariably feel a necessity to tinker with the app. Please keep this one as is."
Best app on my phone!!!!! ★★★★★
March, 2013 "Best app on my phone! Well worth the small price!!! Now instead of carrying 2 notebooks to Dr & specialist appointments to refer back to dates and times of what meds were changed when and for what reason...I now have it in a matter of seconds AND...can check when they change meds for interactions. It even stores all the pharmacy info including script #'s! For any parent with a child with Epilepsy, who is on multiple seizure meds...and they keep changing them...this is the app for you!!!"
March, 2013 "The app is great - I tried a few others - not knowing anything about anything of these sorts of apps... like this one the best. Intuitive and when I had a question for the dev he had answers and super fast response time. I transitioned from one care system of 20 years to a new organization and this helped me maintain the overlap - already saved me me a few times with doctors and doctor questions. I would recommend this to anyone."
March, 2013 "Love the app! This is my "GO TO" app for my meds!! A must have!!"
Easy to understand ★★★★★
February, 2013 "This app has provided comprehensive oversight of the growing number of meds aging brings. Having the Med Box feature to easily display the proper names & dosages makes it so much easier to provide the other doctors details of what you are already taking.Best of all - the med check feature provided will inform you of interactions,precautions,and side effects. Easy to read print-compared to the folded-small print patient information usually provided in the manufacturers package. This is a good value to double check what is going on with your care and to be responsible."
Great app! ★★★★★
January, 2013 "Does everything it says it does extremely well. I have found no problems with this app. Worth every penny!"
Best Rx App out there ★★★★★
January, 2013 "I am a Paramedic. I spend a lot of time checking out new drug apps. This app is by far the best I have found. I have deleted quite a few other apps because of this one. Super intuitive, super thorough, available w/o Internet and explanations that are helpful to everyone from a tech to an MD. It's very helpful to be able to reference indications/contraindications/side effects/classes... All with a couple of taps. I recommend this app to everyone I know in medicine."
January, 2013 "I find this very helpful and easy to use! No problems and would recommend it to fellow RN's."
Great product! ★★★★★
January, 2013 "This app is a great one!!! I can keep an accurate and up-to-date record of my meds and allergies. I really like the printing feature and the ability to email. I also use the ability to look up drug info and interactions.... Great features!!!"
Great App, Fantastic Value ★★★★★
December, 2012 "I cannot overstate how much work, knowledge, and blood, sweat and tears must have gone into this app. It contains a huge amount of information about drugs, their interactions with one another, and precautions to take. It is seriously underpriced. It amazes me that folks will spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars for their new iPad or iphone and then expect developers give away their work, knowledge and expertise. I would gladly pay more for this app. I had a quick question for the developer and got an answer within minutes. I highly recommend this one."
December, 2012 "Makes it easy to check drug interactions with my diabetes, thyroid, and cholesterol meds."
Student use ★★★★★
December, 2012 "A fantastic app! As a pharmacy student this is my go-to app. Use it on rotations and just for general reference. LOVE the MOAs section for each drug."
December, 2012 "I use this app daily at work as a nurse. I also recommend it daily to other nurses. I love it"
Does everything you need and more... ★★★★★
November, 2012 "This app just doesn't know when to quit! From a drug look-up (by both generic and brand name) that provides every bit of information you could need, right at your fingertips, to a med check that will cross reference your meds for interactions and side effects, to an easy way to create and keep updated a profile of your medication, pharmacies, and doctors. You can even share your profile (via email) with family, friends, or -more importantly - your doctors. Every couple of weeks I discover something I didn't know was there...And don't forget to hit those little blue buttons!"
November, 2012 "As a nurse, I wanted a reliable resource available on my iPod touch. This app superseded my expectations. It gives all of the facts that you need in a reader friendly format (even medical staff are not interested in all that medical jargon). You can compare medication interactions, read about precautions, side effects as well as brand and generic names. Drugs are listed alphabetically, by indications and classification. You can't beat it!"
Great App and Great Support ★★★★★
November, 2012 "I've had this app for quite some time now and it gets better with each update. Crystal clear interface with all the info presented clearly. The new medbox is great with even more customization. I had an issue with a crash and the developer got back to me right away and presented a fix until he can push an update to the App Store. This is my favorite drug app and use it all the time."
A Fantastic App for medicated people ★★★★★
November, 2012 "I had this App on my phone for quite a length of time and never opened the App to elicit information. Finally today as I was updating some Apps I decided to open the App tonight & I learned something so very, very important. I take "Sotalol" for Chronic Atrial Fibrillation. A chronic irregular heartbeat. I learned from this App that if I take minerals (eg. Magnesium) It would decrease the effects of my drug Sotalol. Sure enough this may be exactly the reason that the drug is not working with the potency it once had. I was taking magnesium supplements every morning at the same time I was taking Sotalol. I will monitor myself in the coming weeks because I will not mix "Magnesium" with the drug "Sotalol." I am very satisfied with the Pocket RX App and I recommend this App highly. Jerry C. New York City"
Love it! ★★★★★
November, 2012 "This is exactly what I was looking for. I especially like the med check option that will cross reference the meds you are taking and let you know if there are any adverse reactions. Also like the email profile option. It is the best app I have found to quickly update my family of med changes. (No copy and paste - just import - awesome)"
November, 2012 "Very user friendly. Teaches you all about diff medications. Lets you store all of your medications, then gives you a option to run a med check to see if there are any interactions. Gives you all the side affects. Has a pill identifier also, so it shows you what the medication looks like as we'll. Great App!!!!!!!"
Very helpful ★★★★★
November, 2012 "As a DDS student this app is extremely helpful when patients can not remember which medications they are taking. The instant search with highlighting is extremely good, and the ability to search by name (brand and generic), class, or indication makes finding medications a breeze. The information provided for each drug is concise and well organized. Like the developer says, not everything we know about each drug is included, but the most important information such as common dosage, complications, etc is available at a glance."
I LOVE this App!! ★★★★★★
October, 2012 "I'm currently a Pharmacy Technician and this App is SOO useful and a very BIG help!! Totally love it!!!"
Best pharmacy app out there ★★★★★
October, 2012 "This is the app I've been looking for, I have JRA, keeping track of all my meds and finding out if something new I take will interact with them was such a pain. This app makes my life so much easier. It is well worth the money. Oh and being able to send your list of meds to a new doc is just priceless. Thank you for creating such an awesome app."
October, 2012 "I am a nursing student and use this regularly. You can't beat it for the price...would highly recommend."
September, 2012 "If I could create more stars, I would create 100 and fill them all in! I'm an RN and have been in search of an affordable, but very helpful, drug app. This is it!!!!!! Thank you developers. I'm sending the link to my peers."
So helpful ★★★★★
September, 2012 "I recently had surgery and when I went in and was doing per admit stuff and asked to give my med list I pulled out my iPad and pulled up this app and the nurses loved it."
Great app! ★★★★★
September, 2012 "I use this in my pharmacy more often than the expensive apps. It's easy to find just what you need."
