Just a few things

Would really like to see a few things changed or improved. First, I'd like to be able to backdate when medications start or stop. I would also like to change the trade name or brand of a medication e.g., from a generic Apotex name to the Sandoz alternative. Finally, I'd appreciate a dark mode -- too much whitespace for midnight life admin. Thanks heaps

Developer Response ,

Hi Tim, thanks for your feedback on the MedicineWise app. We will take on board your suggestions for improvement. With regards to backdating the start date - this is something we are currently working on and will release this feature in the near future. We will also be implementing a medicine stop date that archives your medicines and stops reminders at that particular date. Kind regards, MedicineWise App Support.

Used for previous medication but won’t load new

I’ve added all my previous medicines with no problem , but when I try to add my most recent one it stops me just before the end. I get to the dosage screen. You put in frequency, and time and I use 1, starting date and set alarm And then there’s a message please enter all dosage information but there’s nothing more to fill in!
I’ve tried multiple times on my iphone and even downloaded the app on to my ipad and tried there. The only difference is that on the iPad I can write 1 cap but it still comes up with the same message. Very disappointing! Please let me know if there’s a workaround

Developer Response ,

Hi Rosiemary, we have default values entered into all fields of that frequency screen (e.g. 1 tablet, 8:00AM dose time, start date 05/07/2019) that you will need to still tap into to acknowledge/accept, before you can proceed to the next screen - we recommend you tap into all fields on this screen before you tap 'Next' and you will find this allows you to proceed on. We acknowledge that app users like yourself have unfortunately found this design confusing, and we will make sure this screen is easier to use in our upcoming releases. We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing you at the moment. Regards, MedicineWise Support

Handy but clunky

Great place to keep medication information and also has handy link to medicine information. Could use some improvement in user interface. Not very intuitive if you need to change dosage schedule. How do you keep the history plus change for future dose?? Couldn’t find this, so had to delete old dosage and make a new one. Trouble logging in, even after password reset it took another three attempts.

Developer Response ,

Hi Wendles. We are taking on board your feedback to improve our user interface. If you need a record for dosage changes, we suggest you use the option of 'stop taking this medicine' from the Medicine Details screen for the medicine - you can then view the old dosage using the 'show stopped medicines' option from the Medicines screen. We are sorry you've had issues with the password reset process - please call (02) 8217 8700 Mon-Fri 9AM-5PM AEST if you require assistance with this in the future.
