Let’s be honest: we’ve all missed taking a daily medication. It might be because you were too busy, in a rush, or simply forgot. If your child is on medication, they may have also missed taking them because they didn’t have the energy to do so due to their depression, or their brain might have been too foggy to remember because of other mental health issues getting in the way.
We’ve covered one of the most popular medication reminder apps before (you can check out our article on Medisafe here), but we did want to offer other free alternatives for you to consider in case you want to explore something new, don’t like the interface, or just want to have other options. We specifically chose these for reminding your to take medication for their mental health, but of course this can apply to any other medication that they are taking too.
Does your child currently take medication for their mental health? If you take any sort of medication, what difficulties do you face when remembering to take them? Does your child have any difficulty adhering to their medication?
