Medication Reminders

Medication Reminders

1 out of every 5 adults forgets to take their medication as prescribed. With NowPatient’s medication reminder service, you will be notified when to take your medication.  If you miss a dose, we can enable notifications to alert a family member or loved one.

How it works

Step 1

Navigate to the features section in your account and select Medication Reminders

Step 2

Choose your medication

Here you will see a record of existing medications that you take. You can select the medication for which you want to set up reminder alerts. If we do not have a record of your medication or if you want to set up a reminder for non-medical products like vitamins, you will be able to use the free-type box to add this information.
