Record PRN (as needed) medications

The Walmart Wellness app can help you, or a loved one, keep track of your as needed medications (often called PRNs) by recording the doses you’ve taken. 

The app will keep a running history so you can see the last time you took your pain medication, or other PRN, and the number of doses you've taken. You can easily monitor your progress and share updates with your doctor.


iOS Instructions

To record PRN medication doses, you’ll need to add your medication and make sure there is no reminder set for the medication. You should see "As directed" next to the medication name in the Medications module.

  1. Go the Medications module.
  2. Tap on Schedule (top right).
  3. Scroll to the bottom of your medication list to the As Directed section.
  4. Tap on the square next to the medication to mark it as taken. The medication will then be recorded earlier in the list at the time on which you tapped to mark it.
