No matter what your age, there are times when you may need to take medications, either prescription or over the counter, on an as needed basis. It is important to adhere to the recommended dosing frequency to diminish potential side effects and control the symptoms for which they are being taken. Up until now, you either relied on your memory or kept track of the doses you took with a pen and paper. Well now, with Track My Dose, Alexa can help you easily record your doses and find out when you can take the next one.
To start logging medication doses in Track My Dose, you simply: 1. Register as a user/patient. To start the process, just say, “Alexa, register me.” The registration process allows more than one person within a household use Track My Dose. 2. Add the drugs you wish to track to your Medicine Cabinet. Say, “Alexa, add a medicine to my Medicine Cabinet.” You’ll be asked your name, the name of the medication and the numbers of hours between doses. 3. Once you complete the two previous steps, you can log a dose of any of the medications in your Medicine Cabinet by saying, “Alexa, enter a dose of the drug I took.” Alexa will ask you for your name, the name of the medication and the date and time of the dose.
Once you have logged some doses, there are some other things you can do with Track My Dose: 1. To find out when you can take another dose of a medicine you’re tracking just ask, “Alexa, when can I take another dose?” 2. You can change the dosing frequency of one of the drugs in your Medicine Cabinet by saying, “Alexa, change a dosing frequency.” 3. You can get a list of the drugs in your Medicine Cabinet by saying, “Alexa, tell me the drugs in my Medicine Cabinet.” 4. Finally, you can get a list of the doses you took of a specific medicine or all your tracked medicines within the number of weeks you specify. To do this, say, “Alexa, tell me my previous doses.”
Track My Dose is a modern way to keep track of the as needed medicines you take. It will not remind you to take a medication, nor will it check for potential conflicts between medications. You should rely upon your Pharmacist or Physician for that kind of information.
