Medidex Launches Drug Abuse Prevention Features on MedManage mHealth App

New York City, New York – Medidex Inc. is proud to announce the release and availability of MedManage 2.3.1, their cloud-based medication management system for patients, nurses, or caregivers, available now for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices.

The app allows common tasks which are often done manually or from memory to be done in the digital world. Create a portable medication list with directions so you never forget to take medication no matter where you are, understand information and look up side effects and warnings about the medication you are taking and find a permanent medication disposal drop box near you if you have unwanted or unused medication.

Count It! Lock It! Drop It!, with similar goals around medication adherence and medication safety, worked with MedManage to make another valuable resource available to its users; a drop box finder. This finder allows the app user to find a permanent disposal site nearest to the zip code they type in. MedManage locates the nearest site along with the location’s address, phone number and hours of operation.

Idle medications left in drug cabinets are easy targets for experimentation and abuse. Now it’s as simple as ever to dispose of your unwanted, expired or unused prescription medication and help reduce access to prescriptions in the home.
