App worked great till today when it stopped working I deleted and reinstalled with no luck    Stopped working
This is a mediocre drug book at best it is missing a lot of standard used medications Buy another book    lpn
Current update not working failing to restore my recently renewed purchase Please fix    Failure to restore
As of 529 update crashes when opening content with iOS 613Cannot recommend anyone spend this amount on an otherwise solid app until this is resolved    Crashes on launch
Wanted to give this App a try but the free trial version so useless that there is no way to judge whether or not it is actually any good So 1 star and a quick delete buhbye    Free version useless
I love this app but I cannot restore it since it updated I need this app for school Please help me    Cannot restore purchased app
Just bought the handbook book version cover advertised the app after playing the money for the book version you think that there would be access for a limited time to the handbook I know that I will be looking up more than 25 medications during the time that I will have the book Recently I have noticed that the companies are making apps that offer in app purchases all for another handfull of cash    Not impressed
Why offer a free app if youre going to offer sneaky inapp purchases to even get access to the information Stupid Based on other reviews I will not be paying for any type of upgrade    Misleading
Doesnt give any information unless you buy it Not even worth the money    You have to pay for it not worth it
I am a nurse working in home care This app is absolutely a must Patients hand you all sorts of medication this app actually shows you what every pill is supposed to look like Scroll down and you get nursing interventions Look up in seconds Im very happy I bought it This app beats Davis drug guide                Great app
Dont waste your money When I purchase an app for 2699 I expect it to work and not expire until I pay for the app again It tells me to press here to restore previous purchase yet does not recognize my credentials Ridiculous to say the least Ive now switched to Epocrates which has not disappointed me It is also free which is the best part    Huge Disappointed
I like how easy this app is to use but the problem I have is getting it to open I click on it several times and cant get the app to open and when it does it says loading and freezes up I have checked for updates and I dont know what else to do There isnt a link to contact the developer that I have found Good luck to others It looks like they have updated it but unfortunately for me they are trying to make me pay again          Good but there is an issue
The general ease of use is beyond awful There are drugs that simply are not listed and the worst and most frustrating part is its search capability Not only does it fail to recognize some generics but recognizes brand and vice versa if you miss a drug name by just one letter it fails to pick up on it and simply says not foundThe only positive I can say is that once you have landed on the correct page the information is well presented The Nursing Consideration is a nice addition and has been useful To sum it up I will not renew the overpriced subscription Save money and use the FREE epocrates app I honestly use that one much more in practice especially with the auto fill and easy of searching       Could be So Much Better
I just bought this app three weeks ago and could not open it today in clinicals I want my money back    Do not buy Forced to upgrade after three weeks
I can finally use this amazing drug book app again The new iOS update makes it so much easier to find drug information In spite of some recent issues about restoration of purchase the tech support has assisted me in a timely manner I would definitely recommend this app to anyone in the healthcare field No more flipping drug books Saves me time                Yay
Seems every time I really need it I cant use it So far a waste of my money       Just doesnt work
Very helpful I am a nursing student have had no problems with the app I love it                Great
This app has stopped working Again    David
Apparently in my haste of trying to restore this app I inadvertently purchased it again I have spent 2499 2499 and 4400 and IT STILL DOESNT WORK    Expensive app
Very very slow Dont waste your money    Nursing Drug Book
At first glance it looks like a great app but once you begin using it the frustration sets in The biggest complaint is it is very very slow I can type the entire drug name and it will still be blank like the app is frozen When the name finally appears many times the drug is not listed You can find drugs faster in the actual book before finding them in this app I found epocrates and Davis a much better solution    Not worth it Horrible search and slow
Thanks for updating it and keeping all the information current                Great App I use it all the time
Minor big fixes                Help
I called and asked for antidotes to be added I paid for this app and it has become almost useless at the end of my second semester in nursing school because antidotes to drugs and doses are of critical importance in healthcare Pleeeeeeeease add antidotes       Antidotes
Same issue as the previous review After update unable to open app Error message indicating unable to restore previous purchase Solution    Unable to restore purchase
Mine hesitates like crazy when I tap on ANYTHINGOverall disappointed because I was looking forward to quick easy access especially for the price Info is great only if I could access it more easily       Bad reaction time to touch
This app is horrible I have deleted it twice bc Im unable to open it Please fix Or get rid of it    NDH
This app is very helpful and the information is presented well once you find the drug you are looking for The problem with this app is FINDING THE DRUG You have to search by pharmaceutic class or by therapeutic class Not everyone knows the class of the drug and itd be so much easier and save so much time if you could actually search for drug name instead of class          Needs improvement
They actually fixed it And gave me an additional six months subscription Little slow on the tech support and I was out an app for a few months but 4 stars For actually doing something             Holy moley
This app wont open Just a black screen How do I get my money back for an app that wont work properly    What now
Rate Negative 5 stars if possible To type in the name of a drug and not get anything and I mean nothing is a crime As nurses new medications come out every day We need tools that work for fast delivery of the potentially lifesaving information involved with direct patient careI used to carry the physical book with me every day at work I trusted the publisher to have an application that would at least deliver me the most basic of information This application is deadSo set the code status to this application as DNR DO NOT PURCHASE IT DOESNT WORK AND YOU WILL WASTE YOUR MONEY AS I HAVE    Poor Application
Yet still collected the customer cash and stopped the updates everyone paid for that bought this content through unbound Now they push this buggy crashprone excuse for an appbeen with davis on unbound ever since    Killed license agreement with unbound medicine
I regularly use NDH from the year 2001 It is a great drug guide not only to nurses but to all the medical staff                Highly Recommended
Um how about unpaid full price for this app and then it does an update and it no longer can restore my purchase What a rip off how do I get my money back FIX THIS NOW    Update WONT RESTORE MY PURCHASE
Please fix this problem    I cant to restore the purchase
Not all drugs listed I needed to look up hydrocodone 75 for a patient it wasnt in the book Upon further investigation no other pain or mood altering drugs available All drugs need to be listed in a drug handbook       Ok only
It wont search for example antihypertensive when I switch to therapeutic class and pharmacologic class search type I cant skip to different alphabet under pharm and therap class Feedback system doesnt work either Also why cant I search trade names Its an expensive app Dont make me regret my purchase I went against the review to buy this app Please fix it and you will get my 5 stars    Make it work You owe it to us
Used to use everyday at work Now it doesnt work Help    Crashed
I have bought the app and now I cant even access it I am very upset as I have used it quite frequently You need to provide a number for technical support in order to resolve issues Your rate has dropped with me from a 5 to a 1    RN Nurse
It requires a login now that its been upgraded but no functionality to recover username or password I have had this app for a long time There is no way I am going to remember which namepassword combo I used for this and I refuse to resubscribe And why does an upgrade just erase your previous app Shouldnt it just enhance it Come on    Fail
Did not like this app at all It is not user friendly at all You cannot just type in the drug name You need to know the therapeutic class etc Not every one knows the drug class of every drug There should be a search function by name too Very disappointed Especially since it was 2699       Not user friendly
Used to rely on it and then one day it just wouldnt open No tech support and have deletedinstalled with no luck Paid good money for this app FIX please    Great app went bad
I had purchased this app but after I updated my iPad it wouldnt allow me to open it I contacted tech support they sent me an email the following day and I was able to get in without any problem This app is great in general and now I know if anything goes wrong they will do what they can to fix it             Tech Support is Awesome
Could you please make another version that I can use this app on my macbook pro I think this app is very useful Thanks                Macbook version request
Not working for past two days Help    Not working
The new update has completely locked me out It failed to restore my access Now I cannot log in Thanks a lot    Waste of money
Use to work but now crashes anytime I try to open it Waste of money    Crashes
Where is the original lippincotts nursing drug handbook    Horrible
Awesome                If I could give 6 stars
Garbage To expensive of an app to just not work at all Been useless to me the entire school term when I needed it Dont waste your go buy the Lippencott book instead    Refuses to restore
