These e-pill Medication Reminders (www.epill.com) may seem like simple tools, but it’s easy to forget that medication interactions can be just as dangerous as a car accident. Adverse drug reactions are far more common than we like to believe, and even if they’re not deadly at first, they can severely damage the quality of life for those we love. Similarly, this frees up the elderly to take medications on their own schedule, not someone else’s. Common medication adherence issues:
Forgetting to take medication on time.
Mistakenly taking too many doses at once.
Taking another dose too soon after the first one.
Getting different pills mixed up.
A significant percentage of all admissions to hospitals and nursing homes can be traced to failure by the elderly or vulnerable to take the prescribed medication on time or in the correct dosage.
e-pill Medication Reminders is Boston based medical device company. Since 1999 e-pill timers, alarm watches, pill boxes with alarms and pill dispensers have helped patients around the world remember to take medications on time (improve medication adherence / patient compliance).
