Does it ever feel like the pile of pills you pop each day just keeps getting bigger? It can be tricky to remember when and how to take them all (and sometimes whether you’ve already taken them!) These handy apps will ensure your medication regime stays on track.
App: Pillbox Alert
Pillbox Alert is one of the many apps out there that will help you to remember which pills to take and when. You can customise what you are taking, how much, mark it off when you take it and see what you have already taken. The app will beep at you when it’s time for the next round, so you’ll never forget another pill again!
Medsy is the iPhone equivalent of Pillbox Alert. It has an easy to use interface with medication reminders – you can give the reminders different colours for different types of medication, which I think is a handy feature no other app is offering.
There aren’t too many pill reminder options on the Blackberry. TimelyMed is a very functional medication reminder system. It’s not pretty, but it gets the job done.
App: Traveler's Pharmacy
Phone: iPhone & Android
Traveler’s Pharmacy is a fantastic app for travelling with medication. If you are overseas and run out of your medication Traveler’s Pharmacy will supply you with a list of equivalent drug names, popular brands, and local names to show the overseas pharmacy. You do not have to be online to use the app unless you wish to use the Wikipedia function, which gives you more in-depth information about the drug.
If you have used another medication-related app which you think is worth sharing post a comment below and let your fellow readers in on the secret.
