Add, edit, and delete medication reminders

The Walmart Wellness app features two types of medication reminders to help stay on top of any medication schedule:

  • Daily medication reminders
    • For grouping medications taken together at the same time daily (similar to a pill box).
    • Preset times: 8:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 5:00 PM, 8:00 PM and can be edited to fit your schedule. 
    • More than one reminder time can be selected for the same medication. 
    • Editing daily reminders affects all medications checked to receive the reminder.  
  • Custom reminders:
    • For individual medications taken separately
    • Editing custom reminders affects only the medication connected to the reminder. 

* Reminder times are set to match the time zone indicated in your device's internal settings.
