For some, taking the correct medication at the right time can mean the difference between a summer picnic and an afternoon in the hospital. With the RxmindMe app, you'll know when to take your drugs even when you're out and about.


You've probably seen the translucent boxes with the compartments marked for each day of the week at the pharmacy while you're shopping for deodorant and Neosporin. The free RxmindMe app (Android version is coming soon) is an extension to that simple system. The app not only reminds users to take their meds, it can be used to track prescriptions and store information about your doctor and pharmacy.

The app includes access to the FDA Drug Database so users can keep abreast of the medications they're taking. And to help cut down on the confusion of look-alike pills, the app features the ability to photograph your pills. I'm guessing that at this moment, someone is adding all their medical marijuana strains to the app. You know, for glaucoma. [RxmindMe via The Next Web]

...or if you only have a few meds to take, you can just put an alarm in your phone for the same time every day that says, "take meds."

Works for me.
