WHAT to take, WHEN to take, HOW to take
WHAT to take
By default, all four medications are activated initially. (Activation is indicated by the toggle positioned to the right.) Taking all four medications is recommended (as long as you have no medical contraindications to taking any of these medications).
To deactivate, slide the toggle left (toggle left). For example: After Day 3, if a specific symptom has cleared, discontinue use. Deactivate Notifications of the medication-treating-that-symptom by selecting the medication-to-be-deactivated and toggle left.
To reactivate, toggle right.
WHEN to take
Timing is based on a standard schedule of 16 waking hours per day. We recommended you take naps when possible to get a cumulative total of 8-10 hours of rest a day when recovering. Sleep is sanctioned with our strategy, and you will not receive any notifications during your designated 8 hour sleep time.
HOW to take
Medication directions include whether to take with or without food, what other foods/drink not to take with the medication, and main side effects. For a more complete listing of side effects, see the package insert for each medication. For Notifications:
- Tap "Taken" once you have consumed the medication.
- MISSED DOSE NOTE: do not take a medication if one hour has passed since your notification. Wait for your next medication notification.
- If you are traveling to another time zone, do not rely on the app notifications. Instead, use the insert strategy to know WHEN and HOW to take medication.
My Symptoms and Warning Signs
