Editors' review

This medication-scheduling program works well as a database yet could be better designed. MedSched allows you to enter prescription information to set up a schedule to ensure you're taking the proper dosage at the right time. The program downloads and installs without a hitch. Once launched, MedSched asks you to enter information in basic information fields, one medication at a time. Choose from the drop-down menu of preprogrammed pill names, or add your own, then add frequency and dosage. The interface is basic and while easy to understand, it's not easy to scroll through schedules once you've created them. You can't scroll down the schedule with a mouse button, and for some reason, there's no scroll bar. While MedSched allows you to save or print out schedules and information, we would have liked to see a reminder system, or even a convenient alarm that alerts you of your next pill. The trial version of this program is limited to a three-medication schedule, which should be sufficient to determine whether this program is right for you. Overall, MedSched is a handy medication database but you'll need to stay on top of it to make sure you're on schedule.

    "Excellent. I found no other programs that do this."

    Version: MedSched 1.0.1

    Pros

    First, the reviewer (Ranger) who said "only 3 meds-bad" left something out... The TRIAL version only does 3 meds. After registering, the program handles UNLIMITED meds for UNLIMITED people although you are only supposed to use it within your family.

    The latest version is 1.1.2 and available at MedSched.***********. The current price is $14.95 to purchase. The author is very helpful and good at answering questions.

    This is a fantastic, one of a kind program that will help anyone with multiple meds. Most of the reviews I've seen don't understand what they are saying or just plain incorrect.
