Change an existing medication reminder time

Medication reminders help you, or a loved one you're caring for, stay on top of a medication schedule no matter how complex it may be.

New scanned medications may be assigned a default time based on the details on the label (e.g. 8 am daily for a med that says to be taken with breakfast), set to the time zone you are currently located in. If you need to change the time (e.g. from 8 am to 7 am), here are the instructions on how to do that.

  1. Go to the Medications module.
  2. Tap on the List View tab (at the bottom next to Daily View).
