Monitored Dosage System
A simple way to manage medication
Do you or a family member find it challenging to remember when to take your medications? Well, there’s a simple solution to both common issues when it comes to managing your medication.
Aim's is to help patients who are taking many different medications at
different times of the day & have trouble keeping track of what to take & when.
What is a Monitored Dosage System?
A Monitored Dosage System is a way of dispensing your medication so we can help you keep track of what to take and when to take it. You will receive your medication in a special tray which has several small compartments for your medication & divided into days of the week with various times of each day. We will then fill this tray with all your medications you need to take in the appropriate compartments.
What this means for you? You don’t need to struggle anymore with boxes & spending your time pushing out tablets from blister packets!
