A phone app to help you take your medicine

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

No more forgetting to take your medicine! NPS has introduced a range of new features to its award-winning Medicines List iPhone app that allow you to schedule in reminders to prompt them to take their medicine.

As part of the upgrade, you can also record whether they took their medicine on time — and if not, why not, which is useful information to share when they next see their doctor.

Using the Medicines List app, you can set the frequency of how often you should take each medicine from a range of default options, or you can set the times to your own customised preferences.

The NPS Medicines List iPhone app can be downloaded for free from the Apple iTunes store, and for those who already have the app, the upgraded features will be available automatically when you next update your apps.

For more information, including how-to videos outlining the app’s features, visit http://www.nps.org.au/consumers/tools_and_tips/iphone_medicines_list.
