How to remember to take your medication: Remind feature

When you have a thyroid problem, it’s important to take your medication on time to get the most out of it and have a healthier life. But how do you remember to take your medication every time? Everyone who takes prescription drugs probably recognizes the feeling when you get an alarm reminder to take the medication just to find that you have left it behind. You may have forgotten them at your desk at the office or at home. “I have to take the medication right when I get there,” you think to yourself.


Then life gets in the way, and when you get near your pills, you have completely forgotten about them. You probably haven’t planned any extra reminders, so it’s easy to miss the medication completely.


Dose Medbox, a smart pill box, changes this. You get reminders exactly when you need them. 


This is how Dose Medbox works. For example, you have planned to take your Levaxin at 8 am. Then the app will remind you at 8 am. If you then don’t take the pill immediately but have your Dose Medbox nearby, you will receive reminders every 15 minutes until you confirm that you have taken your medication. You can change that interval from 15 minutes to either 5 or 10 minutes as well, in the app settings, depending on what you prefer.


If your Dose Medbox is distant (not nearby), you only get one reminder at 8 am. That way you won’t be disturbed with unnecessary extra reminders. You will get continuous reminders from your phone again when you have your Dose Medbox nearby. In this way, you maximize the chance of taking your medication every time.
