Ratings and Reviews
Needs to be current
As a clinical social worker I use the app often especially when out in the field. However it should be updated more often to keep current with new medications as they are introduced.
Good app but needs to be updated routinely to be accurate and current
I’ve been using this app for several years and all of the sudden it won’t open. It flashes then closes. I deleted and updated in App Store and still the same thing.
