Ratings and Reviews
Wish my daughter had used it. She had to be hospitalized after putting new meds in an old bottle for traveling. Didn’t pay attention and took wrong dosage. Had she paid more attention to the markings on the pills she would have maybe not made the mistake. Maybe.
OMG What I help this has been!!
I must to give this app a five star rating I believe it has saved my life!!! Recently I was in the hospital and from the hospital transferred to a rehabilitation facility, The hospital was of course very cautious with the medication they gave me and told me what each pill was that they were giving me unfortunately when transferred to the rehabilitation facility it became a nightmare!!! I felt like I had stepped into the twilight zone!!! These people the nurses which I'm being very nice calling them that would hand me a cup of medicine & I would ask what is this and they would say it's your high blood pressure medicine and your seizure medicine so as soon as the nurses back was turned I checked the medication numbers and identifying marks that were on the tablets and discovered that they were not giving me my medicine, as prescribed by my doctor but we're giving me Tylenol #3 & A medicine for low blood pressure so in fact they could have killed me by doing this!!! So I was able to check the app identify the medicine and not take it and so I am alive to write this review!!!! Also was in the hospital last year , where the exact same thing happened and again I checked this app to identify the tablets and they were not my prescribed medication but rather belonging to another patient!!!
If I could I would give this app 1000 star rating you guys save my life two times how do I thank you????
Use This App. Di_Pinky is correct
I wife was in the hospital and after surgery we had continuous problems with the medication that she was told to take.
After checking each medication we would call the nurse back in and get the list corrected.
They were using an old medication list from five years prior, mixed with a fresh medication list from a phone interview with a nurse from the hospital just a week before the surgery.
That interview was 45 minutes long and covered even holistic and across the counter meds.
In my opinion, the hospital has no excuse for messing this up so bad. And, to top it off, she was in the intensive care ward with the best professionals available.
What does that make you feel like?
Check your pills!!
