  • Outdated information

    There are multiple medicines with outdated information on here that they deem as safe but if you search it up on infant risk itself it shows it's absolutely not safe to take. 😡😡😡 You all seriously need to fix that.
  • Glitchy and Useless

    This app doesn't tell you anything additional about the medications. Google would be much better and free. Also it wouldn't even register my baby's birthday. No matter what I put it said my child was 12+months. The screens will freeze and then nothing will show up under the medication pages. I've deleted it and re-downloaded it twice and no different. Totally not worth the money! Do not download.
  • Can't even use

    I tried to register and it keeps telling me there is an error. Can't get any information or help.
  • Must-have app!

    I also wish I'd downloaded this sooner- so convenient, and great comfort knowing the ratings come from a great research group. Much more trustworthy (and easy) than doing your own internet searches about safety. Also, there's a lot of healthcare providers who simply don't know if medications are safe, so they just tell you to "pump and dump" or even quit breastfeeding when neither is required for baby's safety and makes breastfeeding a greater challenge for us moms. Great resource, easy to use and understand, highly recommend!
  • Good information but cumbersome

    Good to have info about meds at my fingertips when pregnant. It's a bit frustrating, though, to wade through the enormous list of drugs for a condition to see which one I can take. Would be helpful if I could sort them or filter them for ones that are safe for my condition.
  • Not worth the cost.

    With all the information freely available online and all the extra registration steps involved, this app is defiantly a rip off for a simple database website.
  • Wish I'd found it sooner

    I've been nursing babies for 4 years straight. Trying to figure out if I could take a med in the wee hours I bought this app and wish I had known about it sooner. I normally call my ped to verify meds I take which works well, but not after hours and a lot of other sites/apps do not have the data base this site has as well as the simplicity of figuring out safety. Dr. Hale is THE go-to in this field and knowing this app is based off his research makes it easy for me to trust.

    Currently getting a red screen and unable to get drug information. Was a great app when it worked.

  • Did not deliver

    The app failed to deliver any useful information on the medication. It described as "probably safe" without any additional description like: half life of the medication, how long it stays in the system, uses of the medication. Bottom line is the app did not aid in making the decision whether to take the medication for surgery. Will not recommend to fellow moms.
