If you belong to the first group, then below are some of the mobile apps available that can help you better manage your medication:

Also, the app allows you to make about ten profiles, which, in the process takes a more human approach to make sure patients adhere to their medication.
Dosecast is available on Android, Apple, and even Amazon devices. The app is available in two editions: a free edition and a pro edition. Both editions are managed by CloudSync.
Dosecast requires the users to enter the name of their medication, its dosage, and the timeframe to take the medication. Monthly, weekly, daily, or hourly reminders can be set by using the app depending on the dosage.
