Taking your medications as prescribed by your physician, known as medication adherence, may help decrease the risk of complications. For example, not taking blood pressure medications for your heart as written on the prescription could increase the risk of a heart attack, stroke, kidney failure or other complications.

Luckily, there are more than 300,000 health-related digital applications available such as Medisafe or EveryDose, and many others that you can in your iOS or Android app store. GoodRx has a list of their top 6 applications you can check out.1

Most of these apps include listing all of your medications. For example, if you take lisinopril 5 mg at 8 a.m. once daily for blood pressure (and it’s on the medication list you provided), the app will remind you to take this medication at 8 a.m. This process is repeated for the remainder of your medications.

If you do not want to use digital solutions, other methods include:

  1. Medication calendars
  2. Medication card
  3. Medication organizer

Regardless of whether you want to use digital solutions or not, the most important thing to know is there are ways to help you remember to take your medication and improve your health.
