Walgreens has a great app you can download on your phone called Rxmindme http://download.cnet.com/RxmindMe-Prescription-Medicine-Reminder-and-Pill-Tracker/3000-2129_4-75311057.html It’s a great way to set up reminders for medications or vitamins.
If medication has been prescribed by your healthcare provider there is an important reason they have recommended them.
If high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid, cholesterol, asthma, etc. are not properly managed….there can be REAL consequences. If you have questions or concerns about medications, then schedule an appointment with your provider to discuss these concerns. Keep in mind, there is a difference between allergic reaction and side effects. Or if you just simply don’t see the value or understand the importance of taking something that has been prescribed to you-be sure to discuss this with your provider. Sometimes there may be other options available.
This is a simple application to use and can be very beneficial for a variety of people. The most important thing is that you have your meds nearby when the app alarm goes off…..otherwise the reminder isn’t all that helpful. Try one of these handy pill boxes to keep things compact, organized and portable!
