Editors' review

This program tracks prescription information, including dosages and costs, but suffers from design and content issues. My Medications List's utilitarian interface lets you capture prescription details, but the tool tips available for its menu options don't explain the fields or formats. The Help file is bare-bones, but it does include a brief overview and a useful screenshot so you can view sample medication listings as a guide to entering your own. The three fields marked by an asterisk, Quantity, Pills/Day, and Cost, are required to calculate monthly, quarterly, and yearly expenditures, and entries can only be made numerically. The biggest drawback to the program is a file-saving quirk. Each time you save entries to a new file, the changes are reflected in all files. There's no explanation offered for this and no way to turn it off. Though it has flaws, this freeware is an inexpensive option for any user who needs to manage medications.

    "Easy to read and use"

    August 20, 2006   |   By Lorrita

    Version: My Medications List 1.6

    Pros

    Easy to enter information. Just tab through the boxes. (You do need to read the help file to find out what goes in all the fields.)

    I like the notes field for each medication. I use it to enter the provider, special instructions, and reasons for taking this medication instead of a less expensive alternative. Something the MS Office template I was using didn't allow for.

    The general notes field is a great place for entering contact data, allergies, and chronic conditions.

    Cons

    It makes me "beg" for printing. I click on the printer button, and it pops up with a select printer pull down menu-I have only one printer installed. Choosing the printer takes me to a print preview where I have to again click a print button, then the OK button on the print setup pop up. Too many steps. Also, it prints without top and bottom margins. (on my printer)

    It doesn't have places for basic and medical info-Name, date of birth, blood type, Medic Alert info. An omission that seems large given that people who take more than four prescription medications are likely to need a place to list that info.

    "Very, Very useful. My Doctor wants a copy."

    May 01, 2006   |   By exadvent

    Version: My Medications List 1.6

    Pros

    This program is a great way to keep track of your medications, how to take them and the amount you spend on them. It's great to be able to print out a list to take to a medical appointment rather than try to remember them all when the nurse asks "What medications do you take?" When I showed the list to my doctor, she ask me where I got the program because she would like a copy. I have seen similar programs, but not as FREEWARE.

    Cons

    Have not found any yet. And to previous reviewer a corrupted install file does not mean that a program is "garbage".

    Pros?

    There are none. I couldn't even get this program to install correctly because of missing files in the download.

    I don't like downloading programs that are garbage.
