As a parent of a child with two chronic conditions and having several chronic conditions myself, I manage a lot of prescriptions and health information. I always have to know what’s going on health-wise with my son and myself and how our conditions can be affected by daily life and things that go on (ie. colds, stressful situations, long days). When we go on trips, I have to make sure we are fully stocked with our medications. It’s a lot to manage. But with our chronic conditions, both my son and I can really be adversely affected if we don’t take our medications. I’m going to let you know how I can make things easier and how you can too.
Scary stat – nearly 100 million Americans do not follow their prescription requirements correctly – either because of forgetfulness, inconvenience or lack of education. Plus 33% of prescriptions are never filled. Drug adherence is really important – I actually got another health condition several years ago because I didn’t follow the rules in taking a medication for a chronic condition (it was awful). So when I heard that the Walgreens App can help drug adherence, I downloaded it immediately. I think you should download it too – this wake up call is an important one.
If you’re ever confused about medication, you don’t have to wait until morning to get answers. The Walgreens 24/7 Pharmacy Chat (on the app) is always available to help. I know that when I have a question, I want an answer immediately.
If you have more than one prescription, it’s important to remember what you have to take and when you need to take it. Create a routine. I take my medications with my breakfast as a habit. The Walgreens app offers a pill reminder feature to keep you on track (which is a terrific things).
Another great feature of the app – you can get your refills! Either use the “Save a Trip Refill” and/or “Walgreens Express TM” help make medication refills quick and easy. I can add my prescriptions and my son’s prescriptions in my account on the app, as well as the rest of our family members. I also have my insurance info on the app. It makes my life a lot easier and things are hard enough with our chronic conditions!
Plus, you can even connect your Apple Watch to it!
So, take this as a wakeup call! Using the Walgreens app is an easier way to manage your prescriptions. Find out more by visiting your local Walgreens pharmacist or downloading the Walgreens App.
