I use the ccfa app, which has a medication reminder feature. I keep it turned off because I hate to have my phone buzzing all the time, but I do mark that I have taken my meds. It isn't my favorite app, but it include a symptom tracker as well and I like that feature. It is call GI buddy, but doesn't get updated all that often and sometimes doesn't work when my phone updates.

I dont need the minder since I take them twice a day. I was wondering about a list to have on hand in case whatever,... Of course i could just out it in lists.
Is it an app from ccfa or from app store, play store?

Thanks for the reply 😊

I just use the google calendar on my smartphone to pop up reminders of doctor's apts and remicade infusions. The pills i take all at once as part of my morning routine. I very seldom leave the house without brushing my teeth, taking my pills, taking my bag lunch along, or putting on my pants haha.

I know a number of folks have taked about GI symptom tracker apps whether you're a fan of the apple store or android. Never bothered myself.

Yeah...symptoms or reminders I dont do....I hate, hate being bothered, lol. I guess I just need simple list in case of emergency or if I forgot to mention something to a doctor since they all tend to spontaneously ask. I'll keep checking play store.

GI buddy is in the Apple Store and online. Express scripts sends me a notification when I need to refill my sfRowasa and the pharmacy where I pick up my lialda sends me a text when my script is ready, it is on auto refil. I just need to call the doc when the refills run out. Is this more along the lines of what you are looking for, Q?

No....I contact the pharmacy and keep track myself (told them to stop contacting me for the reminder, lol...just call when they're ready or not in stock, etc. ). Just a list for meds, dosge, etc. But I think as I go through the options I might not realise what I actually need.
You and ipoop have given me lists for thought 😉

Tried several, but I kept Round Health. It's on the App Store for free. Very simple and clean interface. I like the reminders, but you can turn them off. Can even email your doc your history, including dates and times. I have several meds that are taken once weekly, so this keeps me on track and compliant.

iPhones have a health app that you can store the information and it comes with the phone. But since you mentioned play store I'm assuming you have an android?
