Medication, especially the oral kind, is one of the things that people can be forgetful or lazy about. Taking pills and other medication at the same time every single day can be easier said than done. 

While there are daily, weekly, and even monthly pillboxes, such as the cases for birth control pills, that can be bought to help organize people's medicine intake, sometimes they are not enough to guarantee that a person does drink their medicines.

These are some examples of medication trackers and reminder apps that will help you remember to take your oral medication regularly:
