One group received texts with medication reminders. Another mixed group received alerts from an e-pillbox, while a third group received both electronic-pillbox alerts and text messages. A fourth group received no reminders at all, the scholarly study authors said. Several in five individuals without reminders missed dosages of their medication in approximately 30 % of the weeks analyzed, according to the study. Those that received reminders from an electronic pillbox didn’t take their medication properly in 17 % of the a few months.
