Useless for some cases 2/5
I'm not on daily meds, but after an operation I was prescribed certain meds ie: 1 ever 12 hours and another every 6 hours but there are only option for days! Really useless for this case!
Love this app!! Works well and easy to use.
Great app 5/5
By Sharon P.
I like that I can mark take medication on time or snooze it. Other apps are cumbersome in these areas. I like that the pictures look like my pills. Easy to use, helpful.
Close but not usable for me 3/5
This app is so close to being exactly what I need but not close enough. I love the pill box interface but I don’t take pills four times a day, I take them six times a day (with breakfast, mid morning, with lunch, mid afternoon, with dinner and at bedtime). As it is now this app forces you to organize your pills into four predefined boxes. It needs to allow the user to set the number of boxes, define/name them and also to set a time range for each one vs a set time. I don’t eat lunch at exactly the same time every day so a reminder going off at exactly 12pm -hit snooze- go off again, etc. would get very annoying really quick. Users also need the option of making a pill “skipable” when they set it up. Not every supplement I take needs to be taken daily.
My background: I have a rare autoimmune disease that I am trying to reverse naturally, using numerous supplements as part of my healing protocol. Some must be taken on an empty stomach, some with food, some once a day, others multiple times. The app as it is now is unusable for me. I am currently using Pills Ping because it is the closest to what I need though I do like the look and pill box interface of this app much better. If the above changes are ever made I will definitely switch.
Lifesaver for me! 4/5
Love this program. Have had to start taking multiple medications over the last couple years and this is helped me keep track of them and my usage. One suggestion, I would love to see is the ability to add notes to a medication. There are many that I’ve had to stop due to side effects and I would love to be able to note that in the system to help me keep track of why I stopped the medication.
I really like but ....you have some problems to fix!!! 2/5
Really like using this APP and find it meets my needs. I like being able to look back & see when I had doctor/dentist appointments.
I use the diary section a lot. However, when typing in information you keep adding info but it only scrolls down so far so you're typing blindly below the keyboard. If that could be fixed it would be a big improvement.
Still like having it and use it a lot on my iPAD but the keyboard still covers if you type very much in diary & contact info for Dr's you can't see the address your typing in until done. Really would improve the APP if this could be fixed.
You need to fix the app so when used on the iPad as stated above you still cannot see what your typing once the keyboard appears. If you add a doctor and want to add the address you can’t see what your typing. I don’t understand why this cannot be fixed.
Also when you type in the diary ....if you list too much info you can’t see what you are typing there. I have never experienced this type of thing with any other APPS I have used.
Under address you should have it so Street, City, State, ZIP
HIV & Bipolar: A Critical Tool 5/5
I am diagnosed Bipolar II and HIV+, and this app is a complete lifesaver! My medications can get complex, are highly time dependent and need monitoring by my doctor, so your standard alert app really falls short. While the initial setup for your routine takes a minute or two, the flexibility and ease of use makes it worth it! I can’t recommend this highly enough!
Super Great for Forgetful People, There’s a Bug 4/5
I have memory problems, and it’s really nice to have something to remind me that I have meds to take. I’m experiencing a bug though where I click take all on a medication and it’ll pull up the “why aren’t you taking this med” pop up. It may also be nice to have a report bug feature.
Just started and already noticed a few glitches. I have to take meds every 6hrs so I placed under 4x a day. Automatically it sets it to 8am 12pm 4pm and 8pm. Or something like that. When i tried to edit the times it wouldnt register under the pill box times when reviewing the times. I then deleted the med and started from scratch this time setting the med Right from the beginning to 6am 12pm 6pm and 12am. It then deleted my 12am visit instead of placing it in night time med box. I had to delete the medication again and start from scratch this time putting 5:59 AM 11:59 AM 5:59 PM and 11:59 PM so that it would register correctly. 😓
Best app 5/5
I looked at over a half dozen apps and this one is the most aesthetic and visually pleasing app that I’ve seen. The graphic user interface showing the pillboxes at different times of the day cannot be beat. One tap on one pill box and you will be able to administer the dose all at once.
The library of medications makes it easy to search and choose the right medication for you instead of having to enter all of your medications manually.
Only one drawback that I see with this app: you can only put the medication down and track for for one person without having to upgrade with this prescription fee. I observe a couple of other medication trackers that allows this feature.
If you only tracking medications for yourself and have no desire to upgrade this will be the best application for you.
Multi device 3/5
App is great but the updates between devices 9s t working very well. While at home I mostly use my iPad and while I am out I use iPhone. Would be nice to see them properly sync
Works good on phone not Apple Watch 4/5
If I go into app on phone and mark taken I’m done till next time. If I mark taken on I watch series 2 in 10 minuets it’s tell me to take again.after updates it works about 1/2 the time on the watch.
Great but... 3/5
By Boo doesn't work
Overall I like this app and it's very helpful. BUT I'm having a big problem with the medfriend feature. It sends my friend a notice almost every night that I may have forgotten my meds when they've already been checked off, on time. I've tried removing and adding the med back, no luck. Only at night, not morning.
No option for NOT sharing your personal info 2/5
This just wasn’t the app for me. There is no way to prevent your personal information from being shared with the developer. HIPPA compliance or not, I don’t want or need my information shared with anyone.
I’ll just set up periodic reminders in the calendar app I guess.
Be sure to read the privacy statement before you download.
Simple but needs one thing 3/5
I like this app a lot. My only complaint is that if you accidentally clear the notification to record taking your medication there is no way to go in and update taking it. It just shows up as missed and you can’t edit it. That is not helpful because you no longer have a current record and can’t even update. A bit frustrating.
Yep, one that works! 5/5
Got this thing 18 months after transplant. Before that -Missed at least 3-4 doses per month. Using alarms and whatnot. After getting this app have not Moses a dose. Good stuff.
New update 2/5
By Marci Bullen
So not sure if it’s the user (me) or what this last update totally messed up my pillbox. It doubled everything including meds I have take in years. Previously I loved the app and used it happily. I feel overwhelmed and have to have my kids try and fix it.
Feb 25th Update Breaks Notification 3/5
1st... I can't find a single feedback path in the app... why are you making it so hard to provide feedback or bug reports.
Last update breaks the ability to "Take" medications from the notifications panel on the today screen. Swiping the notification to get to "view" is OK, but tapping view does nothing. It is a nuisance to have to open the app to mark medications taken.
Love it. 5/5
I’m pretty good at managing my meds, but the second I’m put on a new one, no matter how temporary, I put it into Medisafe.
I’m taking several meds daily that need to be well timed to avoid interaction and this keeps me on track and makes me feel safe (plus informed with extra videos and info on my meds).
I love that it’s persistent in reminding me because though it can be annoying to be prodded, it really is necessary.
My only gripe is the sound of the alert. Had to turn that off right away because it drives me nuts, scares me half to death, and wakes up the dog. I could do with an option to change that, but I do enough on my phone that I notice my alerts when they come without any sound.
No longer registers take all on notifications 2/5
I have been using this app for a couple of years and have loved it, I especially loved that I was able to transfer my account from Android to iPhone when I switched. This app has been so helpful in reminding and keeping track of when I take my pills, since I have to take them several times a day.
Unfortunately, for the last several months there has been a glitch. When I open up the notifications and select take all it does not register. I am having to do it manually which is very frustrating because I forget and then I can’t remember if I’ve taken my meds or not. I hope this problem gets fixed soon!
Best app necessary!! 5/5
By hurting today!
This app reminds me to take my meds when I’m hurting so bad that I can’t think at all! Couldn’t be better!
Measures above others 5/5
I’ve used a lot of different medication reminders - apps and methods. For as unassuming as this app seems, it really does a number of things well.
Other apps would randomly completely ‘lose’ all my medications and reminders (Mango Health), while another would just stop reminding randomly (Round Health), and yet others would just stop letting me mark things as taken.
Just the our fact that this works well, pleasant UI (quirky in some ways, yes), and such puts it above others I’ve tried over the past 1+ years.
Great app 4/5
Was using carezone but could not get reporting on past medicines taken/missed. This would have been 5* but the reporting is not printer friendly and would be nice to have optional report formats and to be able to print directly to a printer. Would also be nice to print out a one page document of current medicines list to give to those who need to know not just show them from the phone.
Outside of that, the tracking and reminders are great and the interaction notifications are fantastic. Your doctor may give highlights of possible side effects but this app gives you the cold hard facts about your medicines and the interactions you could be faced with.
Good but does not have an option of weekend schedule 4/5
4 starts because does not have an option of weekend schedule
WatchOS Issues 3/5
Like the app but I had to turn off notifications on my Apple Series 3 Watch with latest version of watchOS. Reminders show on watch but they don’t stop coming for me after selecting that I’ve taken the pill(s). Hoping it will get fixed soon because notices on watch are better IMO than phone... harder to miss.
You know I love this app. It keeps me from having seizures. I tell everyone about it. Thank you all. Xoxoxo
Love this app! 5/5
It keeps getting better with each update. I’ve been using this app for a few years now and I must say I’d be lost without it.
My daughter also uses it I like the feature to add med friends. the app lets me know weather my daughter has taken her medications or not if she has missed a dose I can text her to remind her. Another great feature is how one can check to see if any medications would cause side effects with ones you are currently taking saves me tons of time since this was added to the app.
My son now has to take medication I will be sure to add this app to his phone. The app works great on iOS and Android I’ve had it on both platforms. Thank you for making this app user friendly and pleasant to look at.
Ease of use 5/5
By NCMom 1964
I like how easy it was to enter my medication and I especially like the bill box option and notification
Great app! 5/5
Really helps keep track of meds and I’m able to show my dr. How my blood sugar is doing.
Best pill reminder app 5/5
Simple to use, great UI, and it tracks prescriptions as well as medications you take as needed. Now I never have to wonder if I took Tylenol or not. Friendly word of advice: Use the snooze feature. It's awesome.
Great, but... 3/5
I like this app. It reminds me to take me meds well, but there are a couple of things that could use improvement. I came from MedSafe for Android and moved to iOS and the thing that I miss the most is the option to have a weekend mode! This was a fantastic option since my times for taking pills vary greatly 3 days a week from the other 4. Also, I love that it shows notifications on my Apple Watch, but it almost never updates correctly when I press take on my watch. It reminds me again 10 minutes later like I hit snooze no matter how many times I press take. Fix these problems and it’s a perfect 5 Star rating!
Love it 4/5
Love the app but have a request. Excel report needs option for med measurements on it (dosage and amount taken)
Horrible Customer Service 1/5
Only use this app if you don’t mind being treated very badly with useless email tennis (because your replies are timed, if you don’t get them in they drop you from the queue). After numerous emails my final answer was we designed it to be inconsistent in marking the medications taken — on purpose! So each time I marked medications taken I. Ever knew what the app was going to do! If you like that as well then this is the app for you! If you prefer consistency and not being talked down to? This isn’t the app for you, trust me! I’d give a zero if I could.
I like how I can ask questions and promptly get a reply makes me feel more comfortable about my medications
Love this app 5/5
By Yanike Mann
It’s like having both a med pill box reminder and reference doc on the go.
Banner Notifications No Longer Communicate With App 4/5
By Pizza grrl
Great app, have used for years and will continue to do so. BUT recently the banner notifications (reminders) to take meds no longer communicate with the app. This means I’ve done what’s necessary to mark meds as taken but the app doesn’t reflect this. Please correct ASAP so I can change rating to the 5 stars it deserves!
Calendar option? 4/5
I love this app so much, and it really helps me keep remember to take my meds and to keep track of what time I take my meds.
I just really wish it had a calendar option, so I could view my med adherence move visually, and quickly reference dates when I forgot to take my meds, or when I took a medication that was as needed as opposed to my daily meds.
Scrolling through a mountain of data isn’t pleasant, and simply viewing my med adherence as a percentage just doesn’t give me as much data as I’d like.
If this change were to be implemented it would be an absolutely perfect app.
Need something easy 5/5
I downloaded this app to help keep track of my daughter ful medication. I love it! Easy to load information give you reminders. The ONLY thing's it did not have was the age did not go low enough for her, that it's set of only one person.
This has help my husband & I keep track of what & when we are giving to our daughter. Knowing that it has been given or missed.
I plan on loading this on my mother phone to help her with her med.
Marking your medications taken via the reminder notification does not work (confirmed by Laurie at tech support); marking a medication taken from the Apple Watch app does not work (confirmed by Laurie at tech support); marking a medication taken via the app prior to the scheduled time will send a ‘missed medication’ alert 🚨 to your Medifriends (confirmed by Laurie at tech support); synchronization of your pill box with your Medifriends does not work (confirmed by Laurie at tech support); and finally, tapping a notification, opening the app, and marking a medication as ‘taken’ still sends a ‘missed medication’ alert 🚨 to your Medifriend (confirmed by Laurie at tech support).
Spent a week going back and forth with Yair and Laurie regarding these issues because my Medifriend now disregards all alerts from this app which defeats the entire purpose. They’re fully aware of these issues.
Great Snooze & Reschedule Dose Features 5/5
Medisafe is great at reminding me to take my supplements. I love the ability to modify the snooze duration each time the alert goes off—for example, if I know I can’t take that dose until 30 minutes later, I can set the snooze duration to 30 minutes for that dose. If I realize ahead of time that I can’t take that day’s upcoming dose at the standard time, I can reschedule just that dose without affecting the normally scheduled time for the following doses. These features let me easily eliminate pointless annoying alerts. The ability to “un-take” a dose and the ability set the time a dose was actually taken make it easy to keep your record-keeping accurate.
My New Favorite App!!! 5/5
This app is Wonderful! I take 22 different pills a day and at different times throughout the day. It keeps me alerted to when I need to take my pills and will nag me until I take them lol. Will also alert me on my iWatch. I love how it shows me the color of my pills. You can also change the reminder sounds, trust me you will LOVE it!
By Vrags /56
Excellent way Of keeping track of your pills or vitamins. Also you could keep track of your vitals.
Pharmacy Connect 2/5
By Irving Simon
It will not download my med history from pharmacy n so it has Elton be done by hand, pill by pill
This pharmacy tech's favorite med management app 5/5
This app has literally improved my quality of life. It is great for those of us with complicated medication regimens, or those that help manage other's meds (the great "Medi friends" feature).
- Allows for scheduled or as needed meds (and has great reminder notifications for scheduled ones)
- Great 3D Touch integration (allows you to take PRN meds, snooze reminders, or take all scheduled meds)
- Great integration with select health information systems (import meds from electronic medical records for some health systems)
- Customizable size/shape/color for tablets and capsules
- Great Apple Watch notifications integration
If you ever forget to take your medication, download this app now. You’ll be surprised by how efficient and helpful it is!
Great app! 5/5
Medisafe is a great and easy to use app. It’s reminders are priceless when you have numerous prescriptions and otc meds to monitor while keeping track of their interactions at the same time. Thank you for such a great tool!
Awesome App 4/5
This app is great the only think I think it is missing is a complete listing of medication information. You can get a list of medications but it would be nice if there was a quick screen to pull up that list medication, dose, frequency, and maybe how long some one has been on it. Would be great tool for ER visits or new doctor visits etc or even on vacation and picking up a new medication at a pharmacy and checking to make sure it’s safe with
This app is a life savor but I have a few enhancements to suggest 5/5
I currently test medical apps professionally and have to admit, this is one of the best I have seen. It has a lot of functionality, but is fairly intuitive. My one come complaint comes to you as a cancer patient. I take oral chemo on a 2 week on and 1 week off cycle. The birth control cycle options come close but not quite. I also have to take multiple pills 4 in the morning and 3 at night. I have managed to work around, but would love to see options for chemo or other med cycles.
App keeps running in background 1/5
Even with the background refresh turned off, this app is continuously running & says so in crash reports & battery usage. Also, if I take my medication early, including 1-5 minutes before the scheduled time & I mark it as taken, I still get an alert. If you have night meds that end at 6am, you cannot go back & mark the dose as taken. UPDATE 2/01/18: I have written numerous emails to no avail. I’m not writing any more.
Great app 5/5
This is the best medicine app I have ever used. Flexible app that allows me to schedule my meds as they are and how I take them. Attractive UI that is useful. Simply the best meds scheduler ever!
Great app!!! 5/5
By An angry dwarf.
It has more than I need but I’ll never give an app less stars for having things I don’t need.
I needed an app to remind me to take my meds. Very recently I was prescribed a medicine that I needed to take 4 times a day. My job is fast paced and the clock isn’t on my mind. It gives me a reminder at whatever time you need (very easy to set up your specific meds), and then again (like a snooze) several times after, making you tell the app you took it. It is what it is. Something to interrupt me from whatever I’m doing to tell me it’s time for medicine because I’m not a robot.
