Established in 2010, thousands use Dosecast, the most flexible and easy-to-use app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad to help you remember to take your medications, vitamins, or birth control pills on time.
Dosecast has been featured in Real Simple magazine and Reader's Digest, and declared best-of-breed by the New York Times.
With Dosecast, you'll remember to take the right drug, the right way, at the right time, every time - with the help of these features, all included in the free edition:
* RELIABLE NOTIFICATIONS *
Dosecast reliably sends dose reminders with or without an internet connection. Dosecast also tracks the time zone you're in when travelling and adjusts reminders accordingly, so you get notified correctly no matter where you are.
* FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING *
Some apps can only remind you to take your medication at the same time every day. Only Dosecast helps you take doses on a daily/weekly/monthly schedule, every X days/weeks, or even after a pre-set number of hours or days since the last dose. Plus, you can avoid dangerous overdoses by setting a maximum number of doses allowed per day or per 24 hours.
* CUSTOMIZABLE DOSE AMOUNTS AND INSTRUCTIONS *
With Dosecast, set the drug name, dosage information, directions, and notes that appear in the reminders for each dose.
* POSTPONE-ABLE REMINDERS *
With Dosecast, you can postpone a reminder before or after it goes off - by however long you need.
* SMART SILENCING *
Dosecast tracks when you're sleeping and when your treatment begins and ends, so there are no unwanted alarms.
* PRIVATE AND SECURE *
No personally identifiable information is collected when using Dosecast, so you can keep your information private. All drug information is encrypted when in transit so using Dosecast is safe even from a public access point.
In addition to these features, the pro edition with CloudSync also includes the following:
* MULTI-DEVICE SYNC *
The Dosecast CloudSync service automatically keeps all your drug data up-to-date across an unlimited number of devices and enables dose reminders to be delivered to all devices simultaneously.
* MULTIPLE DRUG TYPES *
With Dosecast, you can track drugs taken via injections, inhalers, drops, sprays, ointments, patches, and liquid doses. You can even add custom drug types for tracking just about anything!
* DOSE HISTORY AND COMPLIANCE *
Dosecast logs the date and time of doses you take, skip, or postpone so you can view or email the history at any time. It even logs late and missed doses so you can accurately track your drug compliance.
* QUANTITY TRACKING AND REFILL ALERTS *
Dosecast tracks the remaining quantity of each drug you enter and delivers a refill alert when running low. It will even track the number of refills remaining and alert you when you have no refills left!
* MULTI-PERSON SUPPORT *
With Dosecast, you can assign specific medications to different people (or even pets). Sort your medications by person, time of next dose, drug name, or drug type - so you can keep your whole family's medication schedule organized.
* DOCTOR AND PHARMACY TRACKING *
With Dosecast, you can use your contacts to track which doctor is prescribing which drug, as well as track the pharmacy and prescription number for each.
* DRUG DATABASE *
With Dosecast, entering drug information is easy! Simply pick your medication from our drug database to pre-populate the drug name, type, amount, strength, and route. (Available in the US only.)
* CUSTOM DRUG PHOTOS *
With Dosecast, you can take a photo of each drug to identify it more easily. With drug photos, you can be sure you're taking the right drug when a dose is due.
Confidently take the right drug, the right way, at the right time, every time with Dosecast!
Ratings and Reviews
Dosecast: “Life” kept my attention so rivited to do things that I “must do”that I sometimes forgot my own needs for taking the medication that I had been instructed was necessary...not just to take them, but at specific times so that my blood level would remain constant. I found that virtually impossible to do. There were too many other things, such as being care-giver for my husband. Try as I might I could not remember to take my pills properly, and I got away with it for a period of time… until I suddenly popped a clot one of my kidneys destroying half of that kidney. I ended up in the ER and then was admitted to the hospital. I learned a very expensive lesson that day. And then my sons suggested Dosecast which would remind me, via my cell phone,to take my pills throughout the day. I found it to be a miracle worker. No more worries about whether or not I took a pill and forgot it or to take the pill in the first place. This one is a no-brainer. It is either live with Dosecast or gamble with the alternative without it. I am so fortunate that that clot went to my kidney, and NOT to my brain, causing a stroke...or worse.
Multi Year Review
3+ year user. Dosecast is super flexible. It allows for multi takes of the same drug. Love the postpone when away from medications. Set it however long you like and it will remind you then. Love the ability to photograph the pill and attach it to the reminder. The one thing I wish it would do is allow greater flexibility in assigning sounds to alarms. I’m hearing impaired and have “loud” sounds for when I have my hearing aids out.
I’ve tried a few different apps but this one wins out. If you need reminders to take medications this is the app for you.
I used this app for a few years, then stopped using it when I upgraded my phone. I learned the hard way what happens when my vitamins and medications aren't taken on a schedule, ending up in a life-threatening situation (medication-induced thyroid storm from too much thyroid hormone and too little potassium).
I am pleasantly surprised with the upgrades since last year. It's even better! They've added the option to add pictures (especially great for vitamins; I put next to a ruler), and now you can link to the pharmacy and doctor from your contact list.
Other features for those new to it are the history, and you can email it. I like this when I visit my doctor to discuss changes, or how I could improve absorption of vitamins, etc.
I swear - I am a real person who is thankful to be alive. This app is an important tool for my future! I'll never stop using it again!!!
