Since i am a diabetic I have tried many medicine apps. This is by far the best one i came across. The best thing i like about this app is that it works on my apple watch and notifies me even if my watch is not connected to my iphone x via bluetooth.
Very nice and simple, great layout!
No thanks 3/5
Incorrect data shown for time given at times or showing none given when it was.
Since I seem to be ignored here, I’ll look for a different app. I use it for my cat and was going to for my meds, but decided not to..
The app states why am I not giving the Rx to my cat, yet I am. I missed only once but gave it when noticed. I go into the app to read that I keep missing doses, not true. It was nice to try out, but it’s not helping. I am unable to chart it immediately at times, but it is charted as soon as I can. I like the app but it’s insisting I miss doses when I do not. I noticed now it shows I didn’t give the medicine. I’m having a problem with this app showing med skipped when it wasn’t.
Unconfigurable reminders. 3/5
By Steven B unique name
Great app, until you're late taking your meds. The app notifies you incessantly every five or so minutes. I ended up turning notifications on my lock screen and sounds off because there is literally no way to configure how they are in the app.
Otherwise, great application.
Still a Great app!!!! 5/5
Thank you for all your efforts making the app so clear and functional.
I've tried many Med apps and this app works the BEST for me. The Developers and support team are great, they get back to you quickly, are polite, and very helpful (past experiences).
Update in the wrong language 4/5
EDITED: The issue was fixed. I downloaded Medisafe updates again. I appreciate Medisafe for taking the time to let me know it is fixed now.
I changed my rating to 4 stars because I started using Medisafe to remind me to take my pills again, and it does help. It helps my mom, too. (Not yet 5 stars because I can’t enter 1/2 pill doses.)
I speak English only. My phone’s operating system is in English. I live in the US and never travel abroad. But my latest Medisafe update is in Korean. I’m afraid to download it. Please fix this.
Best medicine reminder app out there 5/5
There are so many things that I love about this app- the customizable avatar, I guess it’s called a avatar, anyway the customizable medicine reminder tones, the way you can save your weight and etc, the way you can check medicine interactions, it works with my Apple Watch, and so much more. This is the best app that I have used as far as medicine reminder apps.
Excellent app ! 5/5
Very simple to use. The reminders are great ! It has a tab that you can use to track several measurements (BP, temp, weight, etc.). I HIGHLY recommend this app.
Great app 5/5
This has made such a difference in the way I keep up w/meds! The little reminders are such a big help especially on busy days. Love this app!
I love this app!! 5/5
I tried another app because it was the first one on the list, but it took me several steps to add a medication. A friend recommended Medisafe, so I tried it. I find it easy to navigate and super easy to add Meds to. I highly recommend this app.
Nice app but it's a shame reminders don't *edit* accurately. I take a medication each Thursday and Friday. When I look at the reminders it shows Thursday and Saturday for Thursday and Friday and Saturday for Friday. It gives the reminders correctly but it's very annoying to look and see them listed inaccurately.
I contacted your support and was told just to ignore the problem. This was 3 updates ago. Well...it works but I shouldn't have to ignore something. Please fix!
Best app ever! 5/5
I used this a long time ago (like 2012) but since have gotten a new phone and new medicine. I have been looking for THE med app. This is it! I notice it’s been updated and I appreciate the support of the developers. I love this app! It’s the best health app!
Lots of features until historical reporting 4/5
I have had to vary my dosage and quantity on several medications over the past year. I would love it if the historical data xls export included those two things so I could analyze the changes. I can see when and if I took them, but not how much I took each time.
When I tried to recreate this picture for Drs, I had to scroll through each day and select each pill. Then I transferred it to a paper calendar.
I have been using the app for over a year and really like it. It covers most of what I needed it to and is pretty flexible. I really like the drug interactions ... it has caught several over the counter drug problems missed by doctors and pharmacies.
Does what you expect 3/5
This meds reminder app would be much more affective if it had a higher volume associated with the schedule reminders.
For upgrades I would be more interested in a one time lifetime application option.
Use it every day! 5/5
So far I'm happy with it! It’s a great way to remind yourself to take your meds!
The best app to track my meds 5/5
Easy to schedule your meds
Reminders works perfectly
Wont trade this to try another app
Difficult to navigate 1/5
Just difficult to navigate.
This app has literally made me stupid 1/5
By Angry RR
After multiple times of entering my medications I gave up. The app would change the time. Before and after. Deleted the app reinstalled the app same thing. Gave it all
This app is almost perfect but I am not able to edit when I have taken my medication. Example, I have my reminder set at 3:30am. Sometimes I miss the mark and I take it a couple of hours later but I can not select the taken feature to deplete my pull count. It just says the next time I have to take it will be the following day. I need a consistent reminder until I hit “taken”
Best thing I ever did for myself!
Recommended by my pharmacist.
iWatch integration 2/5
This app was exactly what I was looking for, something to put on my watch to remind me of meds and keep track of when taken. Integration with iPhone doesn’t work. Sometimes it shows up on the iPhone but most time it doesn’t. Also need to get the date on the iWatch for when you are taking your meds.
Could be great. Just not yet.
Do not update iOS 11.4 5/5
By Yippie! 1983
I updated my iOS to 11.4 and now the Medisafe won’t open. The app sits at the splash screen for a minute before crashing out. I’ve tried reinstalling the app with no success.
Do not update your iOS yet.
Great app, but one suggestion 4/5
Great app but I have one suggestion. When clicking on either, “Take,” “Skip,” or “Reschedule,” the little “undo” tab comes up at the bottom of the screen. When I’m doing multiple pills or days (because I don’t get the chance to mark things all the time), the tab stays there way too long, impeding me from clicking the next one. I would recommend moving the “undo” tab so that it doesn’t impede the quickness. If that doesn’t make sense, let me know. Thanks for a great app, would be 5 if that changed.
Very helpful app. Could have more features 4/5
I was delighted when I found out this app existed. I have multiple chronic conditions such as low thyroid, a sleep disorder, allergies, migraines, depression, and anxiety, and I take 9 medicines a day plus several vitamins.
I’m actually great at remembering to take my medicines, but not everyone with that many medicines can do that. Remembering to order refills is difficult for me since I only get 30 day supplies, and the refill times are all staggered throughout the month. This app lets me know when I’m low on a medicine and it keeps the Rx number handy.
Here are some suggestions to make the app even better:
1) For each medicine, make it so you can assign a pharmacy (including phone number and address).
2) Allow entry of an expiration date for medicine refills. I may have 2 refills left, but if that prescription expires in a week, I’ll need to contact my doctor.
3) Allow fractions of pills to be taken. I’m on an odd dose of two medicines. I take 2.5 thyroid pills a day and 3/4 of one antidepressant pill. I found a way to adjust the schedule so that it works correctly, but it was convoluted. For thyroid I put two entries; one where I take 3 thyroid pills every other day, and one where I take 2 pills thyroid on the alternate days. I allotted 3/5 of the pill count to the 3 per day entry so it would give me a reminder when I was running low.
Apple Watch app needs work 3/5
Marking the medication as taken from the Apple Watch or notifications on iPhone lock screen does not work. It requires you to open the app to mark the dose as taken. Once this is fixed, it’ll be a 5* app.
A free app that actually works!!! 5/5
By April Glass
I love this app!!! I have to take so many medications unfortunately due to having several cancer related surgeries and it’s hard to remember them all and this app does it for me!!!! I haven't missed a dose since getting this app!!!
One drawback 3/5
Like a previous reviewer I g y numerous reminder for the same set of pills even though I mark them as taken. Particularly a problem on my Apple Watch c
Useful, for patients and for myself 5/5
Helps me keep track of my own medications during busy days at the hospital. Also an incredibly useful resource for any patients that I see who are tech savvy and having trouble remembering their meds.
Want more choices for frequency 3/5
I would like the ability to schedule a med on specific days. Example Monday, Wednesday, Friday instead of 7 days per week.
Needs work 2/5
I don’t need reminders on when to take each medication. Is there a way I can get a single notification each time I take my meds in a group, like morning and night?
Great app, but not dynamic 4/5
By Geeford Stanley
Making a tweak so the app would time pills based on wake up time would help a lot. Or having that option anyway. Other than that I love it.
There’s surely something better 1/5
By Garys Itunes
Take on the Apple Watch. Then later you need to do it again on the phone. Timers work just as well as this.
Wat a Nag ! 5/5
It’s like having a fourth wife ! Keeps you on track . Good app !
Almost Perfect 4/5
This app is almost perfect. I love it and I’ve been using it to manage my many medications for a couple of years now. I would have given it 5 stars until I got an Apple Watch recently. The iPhone app is 5 stars but the Apple Watch app could use a bit of fine tuning. Sometimes it hangs and the only way I can bring it back to life is by restarting my watch. The biggest drawback I see with the Apple Watch app is not being able to mark meds as taken “On Time” if I’m marking them as taken after their scheduled time (a feature I love in the iOS app). Overall great and keep up the great work
Me gusta mucho la aplicación, ya que mi vida es muy agitada y se me olvidaba tomarme los medicamentos.👍👍
Almost perfect! 5/5
By Capt. Antagonist
I really like this app. It’s the best of any pill tracker that I’ve tried.
I appreciate that you can adjust the time quadrants to fit your schedule, and I LOVE the interaction checker. It actually saved me from a bad interaction that my doctor had overlooked! I’ve recommended this app to quite a few family and friends.
My only complaint is small. When you click on a medication to take it, the button is at the bottom of the screen, and a banner pops up saying the med has been taken, also at the bottom. It remains for a few seconds. The problem is if I go to select another med to take at the same time, I have to wait for the banner to disappear. (I can’t choose the “take all” option bc I don’t take all of my morning meds at the same time). It would be great if the banner were moved, or if I could hold down on a med in the pill box to take it, instead of having to open up the med info page.
All in all, I highly recommend this app!
Great App 4/5
Your app is fantastic and helping me to form new healthy habits of consistency. As a visual person, I’d like to see my history displayed in a visual graphic like a bar or line graph instead of a list
A Very Good Medicine Organizer/Reminder 4/5
I feel this app is very good at what it was intended to do. And I don’t have any problems with the areas that don’t fit my needs exactly.
However, it would be great if the app would integrate with Apple’s Health App. The health is not robust enough to handle when and how my medications change over time, where Medisafe does this very well. Still, I do use Apple’s Health to congregate the majority of my health data, integration with Health would help me provide a more complete picture of my health status to my medical providers.
My husband uses it. Keeps me and my required meds on track. A total revelation.
More nag than useful! 1/5
By Ember's Grandfather
Tell it about a prescription and it tells you when to take it. Then it tells you to take it again, and again, and maybe again. Telling the app you took it nearly never gets acknowledged correctly. I gave up and deleted it to get it to stop, and that was just for two pills twice a day!
Found you at perfect time 5/5
My husband diagnosed with atrial flutter has gone from taking 2 pills daily to now 10. He was totally baffled by which and when and why he was taking all these new pills. Your app has saved him and I have shown it to several of my friends. Thanks
Best Medicine Reminder there is 5/5
I have tried many different apps to help me remember to take my eyedrops and this is the absolute best. I found it through the Apple health app. Otherwise I would never have found it. The only thing I don’t like about it is the way it keeps trying to get me to give them a “medicine buddy”. I don’t want this and I don’t know how to shut it off and they keep sending me messages telling me I need to do this. But I can ignore that because everything else about this app is perfect.
Only one thing missing... 4/5
This is a wonderful app, especially for those of us who struggle to maintain a medication schedule. When you forget to take (or log) a dose, it sends a notification to a user-determined contact (or multiple contacts) alerting them to your missed dose. This is great, BUT could be made perfect by allowing you to manually (or, preferably, automatically) send that same contact a second alert/notification when you end up taking the missed dose.
Sometimes I’m napping and miss an afternoon dose...my friend gets notified that I missed the dose and ends up worried about me...when I wake up I take the missed dose (maybe an hour or so late) and log it in to the app...but I have no way of telling that friend, “Hey, don’t worry, I just took that dose!”
Now, you might say that I could simply call or text that friend...but some people’s illnesses and/or disabilities are such that they avoid any direct social interaction some (or all) of the time...and this is why it would be amazing to allow the user to have an option (a simple button?) to notify their friend that the missed dose has been taken at the time the missed dose is logged. Otherwise, a perfect app! Thank you.
Hands down - the best for meds 5/5
The best app for my needs, it’s met my expectations as a user: keep track of my daily meds and remind me to take them. There’s more that it does but so far I’m very satisfied.
Careful with this one 1/5
Careful when you use the app on the Apple Watch and the phone. It lets you take medicine earlier than scheduled reminder and you can mark it as taken but....then the reminder goes off at the scheduled time and shows you haven’t taken the meds. That’s how I overdosed on my meds. Somehow checking it off on my watch didn’t register with the app and during he scheduled reminder it showed me I hadn’t taken any when I had. It happened once and then again. I only caught it because after it happened once and I had to call poison control center, I decided to use the good old pill organizer instead as a back up. Turned out to be the best decision as the app made the same mistake again. Goodbye! Deleted the app immediately!
Really useful, really usable 5/5
Easy to setup, easy to use. Helpful notifications. Seems very flexible for my needs (times, amounts, medicines). My adherence has significantly increased simply due to the morning notifications which I can’t help but see before I’m out the door in the morning. Highly recommended.
A good reminder 5/5
By informed reading
I love that I can set the time to take my meds and it gives me a hit precisely as I have put it into the app ... thanks “Apple” keep paying it forward.
So close, but wishing for one more function 4/5
Medisafe is perfect for me as it helps my obsessive behaviors and forgetfulness. I am busy and my mind sometimes wanders and I forget to take my medicine. The only problem I run into for me is not seeing a report of my past refill dates in conjunction with how much medicine (pills,etc.) I had left at the time of refill. Example, I have five pills left on the date I refill my 30 day supply making me have 35 pills as of the day I refilled. Why is this important for me? Because even with the refill button, refill reminders, and daily reminders to take medication, again I forget. So if I forget to notate that I did a refill, and I forget if I took my medication, I can look at the report and see what my last refill date was prior and how many pills I had as of that date. Then I can do the math and remember. It would also be helpful to see on the report how many pills I had left after I took my daily dose.
But I love the simplicity of this app. For 98% of the time it keeps me on track with my medication.
Pill reminders 5/5
This perfect for me because it lets me know if I over sleep to take my pill.
Reminder with sound is gone? 4/5
By Barbell LC
I bought a new phone and had to download app to new phone. What happened to the “pill shaking sounds” that I have come to depend on?
That is main reason for me using this application.
