Exactly what I need!
I needed an app to help me keep track of my husband's many medications and downloaded this one because it had such a high star rating.
The rating is right on track. The app is easy to use. It reminds me when medications that aren't taken daily roll around (I seemed to always forget the weekly dosage ones because they aren't a daily habit). Also, the refill tracking and reminders are invaluable. I don't have to keep a constant watch on his medication bottles to ensure that we don't run out of something.
I also have used the saved pharmacy information several times.
Oh, and it also is very nice that I can take a picture of each medicine and store it in the medication information in the app - I know exactly which one is which in his pill organizer without having to go get the bottle.
Good App, but...
I heartily agree with other reviewers that this is a very good app for giving you reminders to take your meds, when to refil your meds, etc. It also stores a lot of good information to have at your fingertips for doctor visits, pharmacy consultations, etc. three areas where this app comes up short for me are: 1) no way to track 'As Needed' meds which can be helpful at doctor visits; 2) no way to see history of one particular med - because even with this app $&!@ happens and meds get missed. This info can be crucial when your doctor is calculating PT/INR values for one example; and 3) this is minor, but I am a visual person and while I think the apps colors are pretty and mood enhancing, the design is a little plain - could be jazzed up a bit. Overall, thank you for this app - it helps keep my stress level down.
This app does what it says; reminds you to take medications. It's not visually beautiful, hence the 4 stars instead of 5. It annoys me every time the reminder alert goes off--but that's what it should do, bother me to remember to take my meds. The reminders about refilling medications is super helpful. I always tend to forget to do that, which can be frustrating when I need to get the written prescription instead of calling the pharmacy refill line. Because of this app I haven't run out of meds in 3 months. I wish that there was a way to schedule different doses for the same medication without having to enter it as a separate med. But that's a small complaint. Overall, this app is really useful and no other med reminder apps do what Medcoach does.
