Dosecast - Medication Reminder

Dosecast - Medication Reminder


Dosecast reminds you to take your medications, vitamins, or birth control pills on time, and tracks your medication adherence. It has been featured in the New York Times, Real Simple magazine, Reader's Digest, About.com, Fierce Mobile Healthcare, and iMedicalApps.com. Remember to take the right drug, the right way, at the right time, every time, with Dosecast.

Dosecast is both flexible and easy-to-use, with all these features included in the free edition:

★ RELIABLE NOTIFICATIONS: Dosecast reliably sends dose reminders and lets you postpone them, like an alarm clock's snooze button. If you miss the first reminder, Dosecast can nag you every few minutes until you respond. It can also sound a continuous alarm that rings until you hear it. Dosecast updates your reminder times as you travel and move across time zones.

★ 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, only on certain days of the week, or even after a pre-set number of hours or days since the last dose. Avoid dangerous overdoses by setting a maximum number of doses allowed per day or per 24 hours.

★ CUSTOMIZABLE DOSE AMOUNTS AND INSTRUCTIONS: Set the drug name, dosage information, directions, and notes that appear in the reminders for each dose. You can also track each drug's expiration date.

★ POSTPONE-ABLE REMINDERS: 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, even when in transit, so using Dosecast is safe even from a public access point.

Big glitch made me delete Loved app worked awesome but if you miss a dose and dont either skip or postpone when reminder comes up and try to get back on track, it will not register any new times and therefore alarm will not work. Only work around was to delete drug and re-enter drug data

Great app, very helpful to remind you to take your medication and to check back to see if you have taken it.

Kept me on schedule After recent surgery I had five different drugs to take, all on different schedules. Some were fairly strong painkillers that made me very drowsy so I was easily confused. Dosecast helped me take the right drugs at the right time - thanks.
