Take control of your medication management with these 4 simple steps

July 11, 2018

Take the headache out of managing your medications by keeping them all in one place in the Evergreen Life medicines management app. You can even set a medication reminder, so you never forget a dose. Whether you take GP prescriptions or over-the-counter meds, we can help make your healthcare safer and easier.

Why use an app for managing your meds?

Keeping up with what medication you need to take, when and how often can become pretty difficult on a regular basis. And it's likely to be dangerous for your health if not taken in the right way. What happens if you take several medicines per day or do regular injections? There's various methods you can use to keep on top of your medication like checklists and pillboxes, but medication management apps are making it even easier to stick to your routine.

Medication management apps are designed to help you take your medication on time and as directed, giving you a complete record of which medicines you have and alerts to remind you.

Evergreen Life app user, Richard* says that “all his records are accessible if required” including a complete medication history and the ability to record whether he’s taken it or not. He manages his 11 different medications with the app, saying it’s “as good as having [his] own medical secretary.”

Greater Manchester-based GP, Dr Amir Hannan, says that for those who are worried about their parent's memory in case they're becoming forgetful, children "can set the app up for their parents to remind them to take their meds." With Evergreen Life, you also have the option to share the record with your loved ones, so that it gives peace-of-mind for their family. As well as this, Dr Amir recommends medication management apps to his patients when going on holiday. He says that getting medicine reminders "becomes even more important when people are very busy or otherwise pre-occupied."

Medication management doesn’t have to be a day-to-day hassle. Just follow our 4 simple steps to take back control.
