I use medisafe, which is a free app that I downloaded on my Android. Plug in your meds and the times you take them and select a notification tone. When it's time to take some meds, it will tell you which ones to take. If you don't respond it will give you a reminder. There are other free apps for medication reminders you can download.

In the morning I put my dosages in small cups like they have in hospitals. Each cup is labeled with the time of day I have to take them. Those times are set in my smart iPhone. The alarm goes off when it's time for a dosage. I have a small pill pocket pill box for times I'm not at home. I choose to put my dosages together daily so that I I'm always aware of what I'm taking & when I need refills!

Thankfully I am on fewer meds (3), however, I have found that I have to take these like clock work, and they are not all at the same time. I have meds at 5:30 am, 7:00 am, 11 am, 4 pm, 6:30 pm and 10 pm. I found the iphone not as helpful as a Fitbit watch. The Fitbit has a silent alarm, which shakes on your wrist. You can set many alarms per day. So it means at 5:30 am it does not wake my wife, and at work it is discrete. Hope that helps someone.
