Do you ever forget to take your blood pressure-lowering medications, and remember only when it's time for your next dose, or when you next measure your blood pressure and find that it is higher than you expected? You're not alone. Only about half of people with blood pressure meds take them as prescribed.

Taking meds as prescribed is one of the most important things you can do to hit your blood pressure targets. Lark's personalized coaching can include help with medications in addition to reminders. This is how you can add your medications into Lark to take advantage of medication coaching! You'll learn how your meds impact your blood pressure over time, which can be great to show your family or your doctor!

How to Add Your Meds

1. Select your profile icon:

It is in green and it looks like a person inside of a circle (or your photo if you set a profile photo).

2. Tap on "Settings":

It looks like a gear icon, just like the "settings" icon in many apps, and it is a round, white icon.

6. Input the name of your medication.

7. Input the time of day you take that medication.

This is when Lark will remind you to take it.

Then, add any others you'd like to be reminded about as well.

Why Adding Your Medication is Important

Support your medication use by using Lark to help you remember and to guide you in making other healthy choices to lower blood pressure. Lark can help you set and work towards weight loss and physical activity goals, as well as guide you towards eating more nutritious foods, managing stress better, and measuring your blood pressure as often as your doctor recommends. 

The average person remembers to take their meds every day about 50% when they do not have an organization or reminder system. Lark can help you remember to take your medication as often as you need, helping you build a healthier routine and reach your goals!

Controlling your blood pressure is the goal if you have hypertension, and the choices you make throughout each day have the greatest impact on your blood pressure. Lark is there for you, anytime and anywhere via your smartphone, with personalized and compassionate coaching.
