I work for a fire department and have used Epocrates for many years to identify pills during EMS alarms. This program may have saved a child's life today by identifying a narcotic ingestion and allowing us to treat the child appropriately. Thanks again, Epocrates!"
A patient called my office after experiencing some side effects with Coumadin, and noticed a difference between his regular pills and his latest prescription. I used the Epocrates Pill ID tool on my iPhone to identify the new pill based on the patient's description. It turned out to be the wrong dosage, and the correction was made right away. Without Epocrates, it would have been difficult for me to quickly identify the problem without seeing the pill in person."
Using Epocrates on my iPad helps me to be mobile, interact with my patients, make the best prescribing decisions, and ultimately helps me provide high-quality patient care."
