If you take multiple medications or help manage medicines for someone who does, you know it can be a challenge to keep track of all those pills and dosages. Sometimes you don’t realize you’ve missed that blood pressure pill until your blood pressure starts to shoot up. For me, it’s my acid reflux medicine. If I forget it, I usually get reminded five hours later when I feel that acid doing its thing.
But there’s a great, free tool available for Android and iPhones called the Medisafe Meds & Pill Reminder. Medisafe has an extremely user-friendly interface that lets you set up reminders divided by morning, afternoon, evening and night.
Adding a medication is as simple as tapping the daypart then adding the name and dose.
You can invite someone to help you remember to keep up with your meds.
Or add a dependent child or family member who needs assistance.
The family alert system will help you monitor that your loved ones are taking their medicine.
You can set reminders for yourself to take doses and also to let you know when it’s time to get a refill.
The app also allows you to track things like your blood sugar levels. It will even connect with a smart watch.
It also features help videos about medications and how to manage them.
It’s a great tool for anyone faced with managing a medication schedule. Best of all, it’s free in both the Google Play Store and The Apple App Store. Just search for Medisafe.
