Keep getting an error while trying to use

3
Anytime I click on something I get an error saying “internet connection error. Unable to detect an internet connection. Verify you are connected to the internet and try again.” Even though I am connected to the internet. I tried my wifi and my phones cellular data and keep getting this message. I pay for this app every year and haven’t had this happen before. Is there a known way to fix this error?

Design, missing some data

3
Overall design is a little cumbersome to utilize. There isn’t much data on certain medications in the app despite there being tons of studies on their use in pregnancy. So I end up wading through a bunch of PubMed articles despite buying this app. Also, it is sometimes difficult to search for meds- like propranolol (very commonly used) isn’t even on there. A little weird. It wasn’t expensive to buy, I just don’t find it useful and will instead be using Epocrates or PubMed.

Doesn’t work

1
I’m currently sick and pumping while my sim is in the NICU. I was referred to this app by my levitation consultant at the hospital. It doesn’t work. I’ve searched up DayQuil and NyQuil to see if I can take it while pumping. I clicked on the med and nothing came up.

Trusted

5
Recommended by my lactation consultants as a trusted resource for medication safety. Great for peace of mind during pregnancy and breastfeeding, when googling is inconclusive and contradictory. I gladly paid the $3.99 subscription cost to help fund more research. Thank you for creating this app!

No explanations

Feel like I’m just as confused and without answers as I was before paying for this app. I can’t figure out what the icons and L’s mean to try and make an educated decision.

The app is not working for me. I keeping getting a message “internet connection error.” I tried turning my wifi off and back on and still not working. I tried deleting and redownloading and now it won’t even let me log in—I get the same error message.

Pregnant and nursing mothers NEED this app.

5
I often suffered in silence during my pregnancy/ early postpartum because I was so nervous about what I was taking in and how it’d affect my baby. Google results will literally return anything that coincides with your search, so it was nearly impossible to get straight answers sometimes. This app did away with my medication anxiety completely. It provides study data on so many medications I thought I couldn’t take and tells me exactly whether or not I can take it. It’s great!

Paid and doesn’t work

I paid for a year subscription and it won’t allow me to create an account. Ive deleted the app, re-downloaded and it still won’t work. Ive reached out to support for assistance and never received a reply.

New update big problem but fixed with re-install

5
Update: I removed and then re-installed the app and it works well again. So thankful as I use this very frequently. This is my “go to” app for pregnancy and breastfeeding safety and patient counseling. Now the app doesn’t work at all. Nothing loads and I have been unable to use it. Very frustrating. Please fix it.
