    New! ePocrates Rx is now available for Blackberry!

    For those not in the know, ePocrates is a free mobile drug reference that's long been on Palm and Windows. It's pretty slick - does drug interaction checks, dosing, breakdowns by diagnosis and a whole host of good stuff. I work in healthcare at a very large hospital, and this is one of the most important applications that our staff uses - from physicians, med students, nurses, pharmacists and everyone else who deals with patients and drugs.

    I'm downloading now and a review will be forthcoming.

    I have been messing with for the last two hours and it is working wonderfully. Took a long time to set up, but is well worth it. Especially working in the medical field. It is very useful and has nice information for the medical professional. Thrilled its free, but would have gladly payed for the program

    I snagged it this afternoon and installed it fine on both my 8700 and 8320. It works fine. And I know that they weren't kidding when they said 9MB of memory. But the app is awesome.

    It's super - i remember it from my Palm and WM days... but, it was even a memory hog (hell, memory hippo) way back then... i can't imagine what it is now -

    I don't work in the health field but my wife & I take meds for various conditions. I loaded it onto my 8830 and wow! It beats my "pill books" by a mile. If you take meds, I recommend it. Docs aren't perfect and knowledge is power!

    I'm really excited that there is finally a pharmacy based application for the blackberry. Epocrates is a good start, but there are far better programs out there drug-info wise that will follow their lead. That means you, MobileMicromedex. Anyway, I'm one happy pharmacist to see this!

    I started to download it earlier but stopped. My BB only has 12.9mb free and 9+ is a bit too much for it

    The two biggest problems wants from me thus far are:

    1) Please pretty please let there be a desktop install instead of OTA. 38 minutes over EDGE isn't fun.
    2) Please pretty please can we install the database on a memory card if we have one?

    I think that's going to be a big problem for a lot of BB users...
