The Medisafe app is a great option for regular drug users to receive reminders on their cell phones. The user can register the remedy, define days and times, in addition to recording dosage and even a diary of reports on the effects of the medication. The software, available for Android and iPhone (iOS), also has a refill reminder, which notifies you when the medicine is running out and needs to be replaced.
See, in the tutorial below, how to use Medisafe's reminder tools so you don't forget to take medication. The procedure was performed on a Galaxy S8 running Android 8 Oreo.
