Meet David, a Medisafe User Living with Epilepsy

What People with Epilepsy Say About Medisafe

    • Saved My Life
      Excellent. I find this app is very useful it’s helping me to remember to take my medication & on time it’s beneficial in saying side-effects & what of medications that react together. I have a rare auto immune illness & knowing that it can cause a crisis which I could die from maybe listing any simple warnings that I’m having a crisis or the same with my epilepsy, diabetics ,panic attacks, & what u could try doing before calling a gp or a ambulance if things are really bad. Altogether though this app has saved my life as I kept forgetting my meds then becoming extremely unwell so this has been a great help. Thank u to all those people who have made this app possible! – iPhone user


    • As an Epileptic, I’d Be Lost
      As an epileptic I’d be lost without this app, thank you developers from epi community, we appreciate your work, best in business. – Android User


    • Saving My Driving Priviledges!
      Gets me to pay attention!  As a senior living alone in lockdown for the past year, my sense of time and routines have gotten very fuzzy. I have found myself not sleeping on a regular schedule and not taking my meds on any kind of real schedule. I have epilepsy, so that’s not ok. After having a couple of small seizures, I knew I had to do something.Setting reminders on my phone didn’t work- I’d turn them off and forget again. And then I was in trouble once more.I love the voice reminders in this app. Having Barack Obama tell me that our freedom depends on my taking my meds stirs me to action. If I don’t do it and he nudges me with a fairly stern reminder, I stop what I’m doing and take the darn pills!Thanks, Medisafe! You’re saving my driving privileges – and maybe my life! – iPhone user


    • Diabetic Medications Were Working Against My Epileptic Medication
      I love this app, especially with the fact that it is very informative with what medications that are compatible with each and which ones aren’t. I found out through this apo what my doctors didn’t that my diabetic medications were working against my epileptic medication and causing me a great deal of pain. I’m very grateful for this app. I place it a semicomatose situation because of one of my medications but this app had already forewarned me that this medication had some severe symptoms. My doctors didn’t inform me of this and that’s something I was very concerned with. Thanks for all the help – – Android user


    • Never Forget Again!
      I take medication for Epilepsy, so I CAN’T miss one single dose. Sure, I could set up an alarm for it, but this allows me to see what I need to take, when, and how much. It also helps when I need to list all the medication I take at appointments. – iPhone user


    • Love Your App
      Love your App Hi, I just set your app up on both my iphone an iPad. I have Parkinson’s and Epilepsy that required too many medication’s throughout the day and night. Your app has worked well so far in keeping me on my important medication schedule. – iPhone user


    • The Best Part is the Ability to Have Someone Who Will Call Me
      I have chronic daily migraines (including Vestibular & Hemiplegic), fibromyalgia, asthma, ulcerative colitis, GERD, alopecia areata, and bipolar disorder, anxiety… in other words, I take A LOT of medications–22 regularly scheduled & 15 prn. I also have epilepsy & deal with 3 types of seizures. I have confusion at times as well. After two very scary extended status epilepticus seizure blackout incidents in Jan & Feb, my son found the Medisafe app. It’s so easy for me to enter my meds, but the best part is the ability to have someone who will call me if I miss anything. When I showed my neurologist, she was so excited and she says she will recommend it to all her patients. Thanks for creating such a useful app! – Android User


    • Highly Recommend!
      Great app! This app is wonderful! It has a lot of great features and now I never have to count out my medication to make sure I took it! It’s discrete too which helps when you’re out in public. As someone who has epilepsy and needs to be super careful about taking her medications on time, I HIGHLY recommend this app!!! –iPhone user


    • Very, Very Useful.
      Excellent app, use it to track my Epilepsy meds. Very, very useful. The ability for nominated people to be able to track your meds also is excellent. – Android user


    • A Sigh of Relief Daily
      This app saves my family! My sister has epilepsy, and it’s dangerous when she forgets to take her medicine. She’s in college, so it’s hard for my family to always keep track of her. This app lets us know if she may have forgotten! She checks in daily, and we breathe a sigh of relief daily. – Android user


    • A Great Help to Me
      Love the app its been such a great help to me. I’m epileptic and missing my does is something I always used to until I downloaded the app – Android User


    • Helps Me Tremendously
      Great app, I’m epileptic and sometimes forget my meds, this app helps me tremendously. I also like how the meds you enter have detailed info about the meds and interactions.


    • Five-Star App!
      5 Star App Medisafe is very good and helps me with lovely prompts about my medication, I recently been diagnosed with Epilepsy and haven’t really taken any regular medication in my life and I was very worried about missing dosage. Medisafe has been fantastic and so far I haven’t missed any meds. Thank you again for your time and effort to create such a important App. – iPhone user


    • What a Fantastic App!
      What a fantastic app!!! Reminds me to take my medicine. I added my daughter who is epileptic and needs her medicine at the same each day. Got hubby on as friend. It tells him what I have medicine and when. Wish I had sooner. – iPhone user


    • Memory Like a Goldfish
      Easy to use, and it super useful I’m 17 and I have to take my epilepsy meds everyday and u have memory like a goldfish so it’s really handy to always have a reminder – Android User


    • Awesome!
      Awesome! I have epilepsy and this app has helped me stay on track. I love it 😉 – iPhone user


    • Great Med Tracker
      A great med tracker. I had a break through Epileptic seizure toward the beginning of this year, so keeping track of my medication is essential to me. This app not only lets me track which medication I’ve taken, but it reminds me and tracks how much medication I have left. I’m even using it for my dog’s inhaler, as you can track multiple family members! – iPhone use


    • Excellent app
      Excellent app. I struggle with short term memory issues and have to take around 18 tablets a day for Crohns and Epilepsy, this app helps me not miss any doses and also has the availability to link to another person so they can assist. – iPhone user


    • I Would Forget a Lot  of the Time
      As I am epileptic, medication is obviously important. My memory is awful, if I didn’t have this app I would forget to take my medication a lot of the time.


  • Doctor Loves Me Using It
    My doctor loves it and loves me using it. I an epileptic and it helps a lot.


Medisafe 5-Star Reviews

What Nurses Say

    • Like Having a Pharmacist at Home
      My sister who is a registered nurse recommended this app to me and I love it, I am quite sure that if I didn’t have it, I would never remember to take all the medications that I am currently on in a timely manner. It’s like having a pharmacist at home.– Gwendolyn R.


    • Going to Recommend to My Patients
      I love this app! In the past I always took my meds at night but recently started a BID (twice a day) med.I put a reminder on my phone calendar which did not work too well. I love that I can snooze my meds for whatever time frame I need to and can mark that I have taken them. No more trying to remember if I took it or not. I’m a nurse and am going to recommend this app to patients. 🙂 – Jennifer B.


    • Didn’t expect much
      I’m a retired nurse so I really didn’t expect much, I thought that the charting system I was using was just fine. Then I tried the app and have been recommending it to others ever since. I love this. – Melody O.


    • The finest app
      I am a retired nurse. I began using this app years ago and found it essential in my busy life to maintain my compliance with medication. As a nurse, I recommended it to numerous patients. It is the finest app I use. – Lynne S.


    • The best by far
      I have not forgotten a med since using this app. Very easy and clear!! I’m a nurse as well and I have used other medication apps. This one is the best by far. –  Catherine B.


    • Fantastic!
      My daughter is a nurse and she flipped out when I added her to my app. She immediately set her mother in law up with the app. She is battling cancer and has a seriously complex regimen of medications! You folks are wizards!!! – App Store Review


    • A nurses recommendation
      A really good app! It’s easy to use. And as a nurse I would totally recommend it to my friends and patients! – App Store review

Comforting Couple

What Caregivers Say

  • Sanity saver
    This app saved my sanity in March! My daughter had brain surgery and was on multiple Meds, multiple times a day. I started out by writing everything out in a time-consuming chart.5 days later I found this app and my work was simplified 100 times over! Thank you! – Cody2228 via the App Store
  • Another Sanity Saver
    Medisafe has saved my sanity in trying to organize multiple prescriptions after my daughters spinal fusion surgery. My husband is able to view from his phone the scheduled medicines and administer while I’m away. Thank you for a great app! –HomeschoolMom! via Twitter
  • Share it all the time
    I’m a medic in the US Army. I started using Medisafe for my own service related conditions and loved it. Now I share the app with patients, doctors, nurses and fellow medics all the time. After learning about medisafe many of the providers I work with recommend it to their parents on a regular basis as well as utilize it themselves. William C.

Doctor Patient

What Doctors Say

  • Excellent reminder
    I’m a doctor and still forget my 10am medications. This app, particularly synced to my watch, is a great help. Although one feature is not much use to me I like the detail of the colour and shape of the drug as a visual reminder. – Malcolm W.
  • Perfect
    I’m a behavioral health clinical pharmacist and the parent of a special needs kid with a complex medication regimen.This app has been amazing for my family and my patients. The med buddies are an incredible option to help keep on track, and the various layouts with pull images really help those who struggle with their regimen complexity. Thanks! – Decante
  • PharmD, Community practice: Best one I’ve seen
    We have a small town community pharmacy, with various clinical programs and a big focus on adherence. I reviewed around 6 of the pill reminder apps at the top of various reviewer lists. The MediSafe app is easily the best, and by a loooooong shot. Earns all 5 stars: Great tool for patients. Thanks to all who built it.
    – App Store reviewer
  • Will Highly Recommend
    I’ve been a pharmacist for over 20 years and this app is amazing. Will be recommending it to all my patients. – – App Store reviewer
  • Brilliant
    Absolutely BRILLIANT App! I’m a retired Pharmacist and I just wish this had been available years ago for my patients. – App Store reviewer

phone_Medisafe_accessSo Much Beter Than a Phone Alarm

    • Always With Me
      The “pesky” alarm will not stop until you tell it you took your meds. I had a transplant and there are times I dismissed my IPhone alarm only to take my meds late. With this app, I have to make an effort to make it stop. Great!!! Plus the tracking of weight, blood pressure etc. makes my whole regime easy and fun. – Dougy-R.


    • Outstanding App
      I really like this app. I’ve been taking meds for a chronic illness for over two decades. I take multiple meds multiple times a day, and have long used notes, phone alarms, even a talking pill box to remind me of every dose. The Medisafe app covers almost everything you need to take and track your prescriptions. It’s easy to use and find your way around. I like being able to see the reports on pills taken, and the interactions checker is a big plus. Thanks for this considerate and intuitive app. It’s very helpful! – Melidawna


    • On Time Now
      I really like this app. It’s very different from the phone alarms I was using, and now I’ve been taking my medication on time. – Maricela R.


    • Ten to Twelve Times a Day
      I have to take various pills ten to twelve times a day. This app makes it easy to know when to take them and to see what I have taken. It is a massive improvement on the bits of paper and phone alarms I used in the past. I’ve been using this for several years and I would be lost without it. App Store Reviewer


    • Easy to use and effective at keeping me on track
      This app has helped me manage my many meds so much better than my previous system of phone alarms. I like that there’s space to make notes and observations. – Jbobthebuilder


    • PerfectI need to take meds twice a day without fail, at the same time. This app is perfect as a way to remind myself that doesn’t rely on my phone alarms. I would highly recommend this for anyone in a similar position. Rich J.


  • 100 Times
    Medisafe is 100 times better than a plain phone alarm. – Elizabeth K.



How Medisafe Helps Diabetics

  • Perfect This app is great. It has helped me get my diabetes back on track! – Nidever
  • Perfect if new to meds
    A recent diabetes diagnosis meant I’m taking lots of pills now. This app is perfect for remembering to take them 🙂 it lists lots of regular Medication – you can also add your own i.e vitamin pills. Invaluable I say.
    – Penfold
  • Great App!
    Finally an app in which all information comes together in one place. medicine alarm clock, blood pressure, diabetes, weight and more! but also an alarm to order medicines! and if it is not enough, you will get information about your medication but it will also be told in a video. This is now an app that makes full use of digital development and makes it TOP! Thank you! – App Store reviewer
  • Best I’ve found
    I use this app to track my meds and blood glucose. It’s the best one I’ve found so far for for hypoglycemics because it doesn’t have all of the extra diabetes-related metrics that most of the other tracking apps have. Being able to note my food intake alongside my measurements is a huge help, plus this makes it easy to export a history of my logs. 10/10, would recommend to anyone wanting to track almost any health-related metric or issue. – Brook T.

How Medisafe Helps With Parkinson’s

  • Keeps Me Moving!
    I take Parkinson’s medication 4 times a day. if you are not on time or miss a dose you don’t walk. This app keeps me moving !
    – William M.
  • Very Helpful for Us
    Use this app to help my wife take her Parkinson’s meds on time throughout the day. Very helpful for us and certainly recommend.
    Wes M.
  • Keeps Me On Important Med Schedule
    I have Parkinson’s and Epilepsy that required too many medications throughout the day and night.  Your app has worked well so far in keeping me on my important medication schedule. –
  • Solved All That for Me
    I have recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s on top of a couple of other conditions – I forget which meds I have had and when – this app has solved all that for me. –
    Marina M.
  • The Best
    Best medicine app. I take a lot medications for Parkinson’s and this is the best app. Easy to schedule and the reminders are excellent.
    – Paul B.


Helps With Taking Multiple Meds

    • Now I can feel safe
      I now can feel safe that I am properly taking 26 prescriptions. They consist of 48 pills, 5+ shots, use of 3 different inhalants 6x all at different intervals through out a 24 hour schedule.I love being able to go into a doctor’s office for a special visit and they ask for med list and I just ask the for an email and they get what ever they need. I always have changes, I make them right there as a doctor gives them to me. He too loves the app. GREAT APP!!! – Dorothy B


    • A literal (mental) lifesaver!
      I currently have 26 daily medications to keep track of with constant changes in     dosages as well as medications being substituted, added, & subtracted.
      With Medisafe, having an alarm to remind me to take my meds is another HUGE BONUS as now I don’t have to think about med at all during the day, Medisafe does it for me!  Our whole family is “Medisafed” as we are all “buddies” & are informed if anyone has missed a dose. Even our Labrador, Bea, is on MediSafe! User “WittsEnd”


  • WOW!
    Setting up my 4x’s daily schedule was a piece of cake! If I have to go back to 8x’s a day, well, I’ll be able to program it for that too. Other apps flash a quick reminder at me. If I’m busy, I just forget about it. I need the repetition!
    Also, the medicine cabinet can even schedule meds that are only taken once every other day or patches that need changed every third day! I get confused when I have to change my medicine patch. Now I’m reminded! Love this app. Tell a lot of people about it.  – Belivenpeac
