My wife has used the Medscape program diligently since she got it. Back in February she had a complete knee replacement, and the program has helped her to track her food intake and her exercise. With the help of this program, she has lost over fifty pounds and will probably lose another forty by the time she's done. After that it will just be about getting fitter and I'm sure the Medscape will continue to prove invaluable.

I am old , 87, so I check out all of my perceived and real aches and pains before seeing a doctor. This enables me to ask meaningful questions.

i don't care how good or not this app is because of the spam. my device, my email on all my devices, spam spam and more spam. give me the option to pay more and be rid of spam but this just isn't imho the way to do an app. to each their own but medscape was for me a disappointment.

I am a nursing student, so I got this app to use, especially for pharmacology. It doesn't have the info I need on the drugs, such as the action, or possible other uses. It also doesn't have the generic names for some meds, one example I can give is Dulcolax. For someone who just wants to look up random medications, it's fine. But for a person who needs real info on the drugs, it tends to be a waste.

I really liked this app, it had the best and most up-to-date information on almost anything medically related. Unfortunately it would not refresh.....and after awhile I just deleted it from my device. It takes up too much data space so I got rid of it. If it would have refreshed daily, I would be using it daily. I wish it would have worked, it could have been a great tool.
