“medicine man” can help you manage your medication reminders. It allows you to cancel the next reminder call when you don’t really need one this time. When you are not sure if you have taken your medication, just ask medicine man. It will tell you if you have any reminder pending. If there is a pending reminder when you check, you know it’s time for your medication.

After you have taken your medication, just cancel the reminder and there will be no more reminder call until the next medication period. It’s that simple.

Your medicine man skill is more than a reminder. When you are in the middle of something and would like to postpone your reminder for another hour or so, you can reschedule your reminder call by simply canceling the next reminder and setting a new reminder at a future time in its place. It offers feelings of comfort and peace of mind to you and everyone involved.
