Add custom medication reminders

Custom medication reminders help you, a loved one, or someone you care for keep on top of a medication schedule—no matter how complex it may be.

There are two types of medication reminders available in CareZone: 

  • Daily medication remindersGrouped reminders for multiple medications taken at the same time every day. 
  • Custom medication reminders: Reminders for medications taken individually or on a unique schedule.

When you first scan a medication into the app, a default reminder time will be added automatically if the label includes specific dosage instructions. (For example, a medication " to be taken with breakfast" would default to an 8:00 AM reminder time). 

You can always edit medication reminders to fit your schedule. Learn how to edit a reminder here.
