Whether you’re concerned about your own safety, or you’re a caregiver for someone with a chronic illness, our new tool, My Medication Tracker, can help keep medications organized and prevent drug errors. With this new tool you can maintain a complete, up-to-date list of all the drugs you take—prescription and over the counter—including dosages, expiration dates, how much you paid for each medicine, directions on how to take your medicines, and the number of refills you have left. You can also record and store information about your allergies, vaccinations, the medical conditions you have, and your insurance coverage information.
My Medication Tracker is easy to use and lets you store a password-protected, electronic record of your medications on your home computer. Simply download the software onto your computer, set up a user name and password, and begin entering your medications by clicking on the "Add New" button.
My Medication Tracker was created by the Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs project with funding from The National Library of Medicine of the National Institutes of Health.
