How can we improve CareZone?

Med Database with Drug Interactions, Photos of Medications, Side Effects, Generics, Etc.

There are sites to do this, but every Rx has to be typed in. If I could just put them here and so a search, it would be SO much easier. Yes dr and pharmacist should be conscious of this but sometimes they miss things.

        I agree. Sometimes generic pills change and it would be great to be able to take a picture of a new pill to avoid confusion. Supplements too. Thx

        The database you would need would be very large. Sometimes people take meds for different reasons. People need to get this info from their doctor.

        My parents use AM/PM pill dispensers and rely on a medication list in iPad Notes that has everything listed by AM, PM or as needed. It would be a huge help to have the ability to:
        - identify medications by whether taken morning or night *wihtout* requiring alarms to be set (needs to be information available to everyone their profiles are shared with but everyone doesn't need to have the alarms)
        - provide a view of medications similar to a calendar agenda view, i.e., has the basic information needed to fill the pill dispenser (name, number, etc.) with everything grouped by AM or PM.

        I used the edit function on the med list, all fields can be modified, example I scanned the med, then after stored, using edit function, I added the name Lasix, I also added 1/2 tablet twice a day, I also put in two different meds for one med, 2.5 & 5mg, put additional comment on the 2.5mg used to adjust as required, then using the reminder function, as the doctors changed my dosage adding 2.5 for some days I only needed to change the reminder to get my view daily to be correct

        Many people take medication with out understanding really what it is and does to your body. What is the medication used for and what are potential side effects would help. Many people won't do the research but if it was a click away inside an app I know I would use it.

        This would be helpful. I have been putting it in the notes, but I'm the only one that knows to look there for that info

        Add in feature for repurchase of supplements, searching popular sites for good price

        on the medication tap, you should have access a med search that doesn't have to be scanned. IT is hard to do when you shake to scan!

        Add the total value of ingredients for vitamins and supplements. This is helpful for multi-vitamins as my physician may want to know how much of each vitamin is in my multi.

        My Mom is on 12 different medications.
        I know the pharmacy should be tracking drug interaction but in my research on medication that my mom takes two other medications cause interactions with one that she also takes and a list of the side effects will be very helpful as far as knowing what the side effects of medications are so you can be assured the medication is for a conditions and not side effects

        When we set our profiles up and scanned our meds, many of which are generic, we simply typed in the name brands in brackets immediately after the generic names. Now we don't have to wonder what in the heck that particular medicine is for.

        It would be helpful to be able to take a picture of the medications and associate them with their respective listing. It could help those with cognitive disabilities or impairments better manage their medications.
