There are now two versions of the ListMeds Android phone app. ListMeds - Free (download it from Google Play) is designed to store your personal medication list and e-mail it to health professionals when you need. ListMeds - Plus (download it from Google Play) allows you to store and e-mail medication lists for your husband, Mom, children and even the family pet as well as yourself. The paid version has no ads.

Are you tired of filling out monotonous medical history forms? Me too. That's why I created a phone app to e-mail my medication list. It can make those forms easier to deal with.
Every time I visit a new doctor, they want me to fill out another long boring medical history form. They all want the same basic information but each form has a different format so you can't just use a copy of the last one you completed.
The worst part is the medications list. You know, writing out all those long nonsensical drug names that are difficult to pronounce and nearly impossible to spell. Of course the doctors needs this information. But honestly, I don't even want to remember those silly names, much less struggle to write them down again.
So, why not have a simple app you can carry around in your cell phone? Instead of copying the same stuff over and over again, enter the information about your medications once to the app and e-mail the list whenever you need. Easier, right?
You bet it is. Worked for me already. Went to a new dentist recently (the old one kept raising his prices). When his receptionist gave me the medical history form, I powered up my phone and sent him my drug list with just a couple of quick clicks, right there in his office. I was prepared. You will be too, after you install this app (download it from Google Play). Might even come in handy during emergencies.
