Conflicting information?

In general, I like this as a drug reference, especially because I can look up supplements and OTCs as well as rx meds. However, I used it a couple days ago to check for any drug interactions between rivaroxaban and glucosamine/Chondroitin. The app reported no interactions found. Fast forward one day, and there is a published article on Medscape warning of drug interactions between prescription medications and OTC supplements. And what do you know, one of the examples is that glucosamine/Chondroitin taken with rivaroxaban increases risk of bleeding.
There’s obviously disparity between what your app is reporting and what your published article on your website report says. It certainly doesn’t boost confidence in using your app to check for drug interactions with patients.

Ads have become completely intrusive.

I used Medscape throughout medical school and it quickly became my go to resource. I’ve used essentially ever major medical app and this was hands down my favorite.

Now the app will not allow a section of text to be ad free. I’ll scroll down while reading and a new ad will insert itself between the text. This is exceptionally distracting and interrupts reading. Why can’t they just keep the ad banners down at the bottom? There is already one there anyway?

I probably will be uninstalling Medscape, which is very disheartening because I’ve been using it for so long. In their quest for ad space they have lost someone to advertise to, and I’ve lost a great resource. There’s no winners in this scenario. It was a good run while it lasted and I’ll always be appreciative towards the app, but I can no longer support it.

Medical Rotations Life Saver

As an MS-3 on the cusp of wrapping up my third year, I have to say this was my GO TO reference source for clinical rotations. A lot of people will say resources like UpToDate and Epocrates are the gold standards, and while they are incredible, neither possesses the ease of use, scope of information, or clinical tools that this app has. I have a paid subscription to those other sources through my school, but this is essentially the only reference I use and it’s completely free for anyone. I would 100% recommend this app to anyone and you better believe I won’t be without it next year, as a resident, or as an attending.
