Online PR News – 20-January-2019 – Hartford, Connecticut – Medidex Inc.® and Count It! Lock It! Drop It!® launch new partnership to add drug abuse prevention features to the MedManage mobile app. MedManage can help patients keep track of medications and reduce risk of possible medication misuse. Features of the app include a daily dose tracking calendar/log, medication info lookup, clear usage instructions, drug adherence charts, and a med drop box locator to dispose of unused supply.

MedManage, available now on apple and android, is a smartphone application created by Medidex Inc. that is a cloud-based medication management system for patients, nurses, or caregivers. 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 warning 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.
