Forget No More: Timer For Your Medication

Forget No More CVS

Are you one of the millions of people who forget to take their medication? You are not alone. The makers of the Forget No More medication timer have the perfect solution!

Did You Know…

Statistics from the manufacturer: 

Rx Noncompliance

  • The American Heart Association claims failure to take prescription medications as prescribed is the #1 problem in treating illness today
  • 50-75% of patients do not take medication according to their doctor’s orders
  • The US National Library of Medicine notes under and over adherence to medications is common after hospital discharge with elderly patients receiving home health services
  • 50% to 60% of the time, patients with chronic conditions do not take their medications
  • 33% to 69% of medication-related hospitalizations are linked to drug non-adherence
  • According to the AMA:
    • 12% do not take their medicine after they get their prescription filled
    • 29% stop taking their medicine before it runs out
    • 22% take less of their medication than is prescribed
    • In other words, only 25% of patients are taking their medication as prescribed

My reaction… Wow! I know that I personally have experienced some of the above issues so that means I am included as part of these statistics.

Forget No More

I have a smart phone so why can’t I just use an app to remind me to take my medications? Good question! Believe it or not there are still people who do not have smart phones. If they happen to have a feature phone that has an alarm, they have no idea how to use it. Even those who have smart phones may not know how to set scheduled alarms. Remembering to take medications is a huge problem, as we have just seen in those statistics. This timer is basically goof proof.

Whether you have an aging parent whose memory is challenged, or you have an active child who forgets to stop long enough to take their medication, or perhaps you need a little assistance in remembering to take your own medication, whatever the issue is with you or your loved one this timer is just what the doctor ordered.

Forget No More is an easy low-cost solution to forgetting to take daily medications.

  • 6 easy to set loud alarms within a 24hr period
  • Each alarm automatically resets for the next day
  • Large digital display so it’s easy to read and use
  • Safety feature so user doesn’t accidentally change alarm times
  • The timer has a flip out stand for the desk or strong magnet for refrigerator mounting
  • The timer comes with an easy medication labeling system to organize daily medications

Labeling System

  • Dimensions are 3” X 3”
  • 2 – AAA batteries for a long battery life
  • Battery meter on display to show life of batteries

This timer will not only help you or your loved one remember to take medication it can assist you in remembering other important items from your To Do list.

Combat Childhood Tooth Decay

Do your children or grandchildren always remember to brush their teeth? Brushing their teeth is critical in combating childhood tooth decay.

  1. Thx for this recommendation, Cheryl! My hubby doesn't use the computer or a cell phone and so I often worry when I'm away that he won't remember to take his meds. I got him one of those day-to-day pill cases, but I know that he has a tendency to forget the evening pills when I'm not here to remind him. I will check out the FNM timer!

    • cheryltherrien says:

      Thanks for your possible interest in this. We are looking for feedback.

  2. Sounds like a great recommendation for people who forget to take their medicin, Cheryl. For some of them it can be fatal to skip a tablet or two:-)

    • cheryltherrien says:

      Agreed. A good product that could help save a life.

  3. It's a great idea for people who don't have /know how to use a smart phone's timer. Daily meds are very easy to lose track of.

    • cheryltherrien says:

      There are many people who still have feature phones. This makes a great companion tool for them.

    Thankfully I do not take any medications…but I am alarmed at the number of people who do! This is a great recommendation. I have a smartphone, but I don't carry it with me around the house so that alarm wouldn;w work so well for me:)

    • cheryltherrien says:

      You are blessed not to be burdened with taking meds. I am not so lucky. Big sigh…

  5. JeriWB says:

    Great idea for those who wouldn't be likely to put a reminder into their SmartPhones 🙂

    • cheryltherrien says:

      I find it interesting the number of people with smart phones that do not utilize them in this way.

  6. susan cooper says:

    Hi Cheryl, well I’m definitely one of those people addicted to my smartphones and ipad so i have plenty of ways to remind myself if all the things i need to remember. But for those who don’t have them or don’t know how to use them i think this is a great option. Especially if it can help with something as important as remembering to take Medication.

    • cheryltherrien says:

      Agreed. This timer makes a great tool for many who do not utilize a smart phone.

    Cheryl, both my husband and I could use one – I need to take meds in the morning and often forget until after lunch, not good and my husband often forgets his afternoon ones completely. So this would be wonderful. Maybe you could write a post about the launch so we would all be reminded.

  8. This is a good product and could save life.
    Well done to them x

  9. patweber says:

    There are only 2 meds I take and I always remember them. Take them with my supplements in the morning. What I think about two of the statistics Cheryl:

    29% stop taking their medicine before it runs out
    22% take less of their medication than is prescribed

    This is BECAUSE the cost of drugs is so darn ridiculous! Geez don't get me going on this one.

    I am going to check out the Forget No More reminder for my dad's consideration.
