Patients Get Free Text or Email Prescription Medication Reminders From FreeRxReminder.com
Date:9/15/2009

A new serviced launched through www.FreeRxReminder.com enables patients to keep better track of their prescription medications and dosage times. With the ability to setup email or text message reminders, they never have to worry about forgetting to take their prescription drugs again.

BATON ROUGE, La., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Prescription medications are widely used in the U.S., with 47% of Americans using at least one prescription drug, according to the Center for Disease Control's report "Health, United States, 2008." Prescription drug use is even more widespread among the senior population, with 66% of those in the 45-65 age group and 87% of those aged 65 years and older on prescription medications. That aging population may also run a greater risk of forgetting to take medications, or even over-dosing unintentionally if they forget they've already taken a dose. Either situation can pose serious health problems for the patient. The release of a free medication reminder service at www.FreeRxReminder.com aims to solve that problem by letting patients setup and receive free reminders about their medication doses and schedules.

"Pill cases and written medication schedules can help people remember when to take their pills to a degree, but for some patients they're not enough," says Rex Bowden, President of FreeRxReminder.com. "Sometimes it's a case of 'out of sight, out of mind.' If a pill case or reminder note isn't in front of someone, it won't help them remember to take their medications when they're supposed to. Our service is designed to alert users when they're supposed to take their prescription drugs. Whether they're at work and in front of their computer, or they simply have their mobile phone with them, they'll get a prescription medication reminder via email or text message -- whichever method they choose."

For those patients who still prefer to keep written medication schedules, FreeRxReminder.com also offers a collection of free printable schedule charts. Visitors can also monitor their medications' strengths and common uses as well as easily share their prescription medication information with their physician and pharmacist through the service.

"We don't only remind patients to take their medicines," says Bowden. "We'll also send them reminders to refill their prescription so they never have to go without." All prescription drug reminders and medication organization tools through FreeRxReminder.com are completely free for patients. It takes only a few minutes to sign up, and then users can add their medication schedule and setup their reminders using the reminder method most convenient for them. Users can even setup multiple medication schedules if they have to take different prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications at different times of the day.
