yellow pillsIf you take several medications on a regular basis, keeping track of each one can be a bit of a challenge. Add in one or more family members and you can easily miss a refill or take the wrong medication. Drug reactions, interactions and side effects are
additional areas of concern – no wonder some families feel so overwhelmed!

Fortunately, there is now an online tool available to help families stay informed about medicines: MedNotes ( MedNotes is a free, award-winning, easy-to-use, personalized medication management program that can be used to track the whole family’s medications. Developed by, the online medicine information web site, MedNotes helps parents and caretakers stay informed about their family’s prescription and over the counter (OTC) drugs, safety news and possible allergic, food and drug interactions.

“Moms are gatekeepers of their family’s health, from their children to their elderly parents so it’s critical for them to stay informed about their families’ medications. But the reality is it’s hard to keep up with new drug safety information coming out nearly every day,” according to Alison Rhodes, “The Safety Mom,” and nationally-recognized expert in child safety. “MedNotes gives mothers the important medication use and safety information they want — and peace of mind when it comes to monitoring and managing their family’s medication needs.”

Important MedNotes Features:

  • Gain immediate access to in-depth consumer information, drug comparisons, historical news, FDA alerts, drug interactions, plus food, allergy and medical condition interactions.
  • Choose to be notified when new FDA alerts are issued and when any new drugs become available for any of your existing medical conditions.
  • Print health and medication records, including physician and emergency contacts, allergies and medical conditions.
  • Use MedNotes to manage medications profiles for yourself and your family.

MedNotes gives caregivers the chance to create profiles for different family members, enter the names of all medications being taken and register to receive — all in one easy-to-access place — drug safety or interaction alerts, new drug and specific condition news that is released by the FDA or drug makers. Moms can also print portable personal health and medication histories, including physician and emergency contact information.

Feedback from early users recognizes MedNotes as a valuable aid to their everyday health management, and in some cases, as a potentially life-saving information source. One consumer shared his printed MedNotes medication profile with paramedics in the ambulance and credits MedNotes with saving critical time and, potentially, his life on the way to the hospital.
