Medication reminders help you or a loved one stay on top of a medication schedule. You can edit these reminders at any time to fit a variety of schedules and needs. 

A few important items to note:

  • There are two types of medication reminders 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.
  • Scanned medications may be assigned a default reminder time based on the scanned label instructions. 
    • For example: Directions to take a medication "with breakfast" will default to an "8:00 AM Daily" reminder (you can change this if needed). 
  • Reminder times are set to match the time zone indicated in your device's internal settings
