Common questions

What should I do if I no longer take a medication? To maintain your medication history, we recommend that you edit the medication rather than delete it. Go to "Instructions", and then add an End Date. You and your doctor will want to know what medications you have used historically.

Can I set a reminder to take my medication? Currently, the reminders are only used to record your pain and/or create a daily reflection. We are still working on implementing medication reminders.

How do I add a dosage of multiple times a day? To do this, you will need to add multiple dosages and specify the time of each dosage. For example, if you need to take 2 pills of your medication at 3 times a day, you would add three dosages of 2 pills each at 9AM, 3PM, and 9PM.

How do I add a dosage of every "x" hours or days? We are currently working on how to best implement this. At this time, we require that you specify the specific time and days for each dosage.

Where is the strength option for micrograms (mcg)? The standard for micrograms is actually µg - so please select that option.

What if I can't find my medication? It is possible that we may not have your specific brand of medication, so select "Add New" from the Search drop-down, which will send us an email to have it added right away. Note that most vitamins or supplements can be added by their medicinal ingredients; however, if these ingredients do not already exist, you can add them as custom "Alleviating Factors" or "Ineffective Factors" instead.
