Like technology? Have trouble remembering to take your medications or just want an easier way to manage them? Sure enough - the Android and Apple app stores are full of health and wellness apps claiming to help with medications. It can sometimes be hard to know which are the best. Below is a list of some of our favorites. Before you jump into, you should know that all mentioned (except for the last one) feature the basics of a medication management app, such as reminders and refill alerts. Instead, we will try to highlight the distinguishing characteristics. All apps mentioned are available for free on iOS and Android.
When you have enough points, you can turn them in for tangible rewards or even use them as a cash donation to a charity of your choice. Other helpful features include drug interaction alerts, health habit reminders (walk more, drink more water, check blood pressure, etc.), and a health diary.
These are just a few of the thousands of apps available. When using an app, always be sure it is from a trustworthy source, especially since you’ll be inputting medical information. If medication management is a burden for you, or maybe it’s not but you want to make it as easy as possible, Gatti Pharmacy has a solution for you. We’ll package your medication in weekly cards FREE of charge - just ask a Gatti Pharmacist how to get started!
