"I'm really paranoid about how much these tech companies know about you. When you use some other browsers or services, you're unwittingly letting them know about everything you search, visit, look for, and do online, and even your location I'm SO OVER THAT!! So it's good that a browser like BRAVE exists"

    "The app does what it says, it allows you set reminders for when you need to take a medical related action, such as taking a pill. It features some easy to understand screens that allow you to track your progress and also see how you're doing over the course of time."

DID YOU KNOW THAT?

Did you know that the highest recorded total of pills swallowed by a patient is 565,939? One of the worlds records Guinness no longer tracks is that of “most pills swallowed.” The exact number of pills taken by C.H.A. Kilner of Bindura, Zimbabwe (who was awarded constantly during the late 1970s to 1990s) progressively increased over time. The 1978 edition of Guinness put it at 280,131 pills. A year later, it had reached 311,316. By 1981 it had reached 359,061. And Kilner finally stopped taking pills on June 19, 1988, having reached a total of 565,939 pills. Kilner apparently took a lot of pills following a pancreatectomy (removal of his pancreas) on June 9, 1967. 

According to a statistical data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 64,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2016. Any medication can have an adverse effect, whether a prescription or drug, herbal medicine or therapy, vitamin supplement, or over-the-counter (OTC) drug. Side effects of medication can range from minor to severe and life-threatening. Some mild adverse effects are constipation, skin rash or dermatitis, diarrhea, dizziness, and more. While more serious effects include suicidal thoughts, abnormal heart rhythms, internal bleeding, and cancer just to name a few. Prevention is possible now that medical-related apps like My Pillbox are developed. Applications like My Pillbox are designed to easily help users track their medications.

Dosecast is so awesome in reminding us to take the medications regularly. Also if for some reason if I am unable to take the medication one time it will adjust the next dose accordingly.It even reminds me to get refills when it is almost time."
