Adding a new type of pill to Hero is quick and easy. To get started, first open the Hero app or go to the Hero web app.
Navigate to the Medication tab and click the + icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
Start typing in the name of your medication, and choose the matching medication from the list provided.
If you don't see your medication listed in the Hero app, that's ok! Type in the name of the medication you're adding, and click next.
Enter in the specific type of the medication you're adding, the dosage, expiration date, and whether you're storing this medication in Hero or outside of Hero.
If you're storing a new medication outside of Hero, you'll still be able to track the medication's schedule and receive notifications through the Hero app.
Next, you can schedule in when you'll be taking your medication. You can select either everyday, select days, or as needed. Everyday or select days will set Hero up to send you alerts and dispense your medication on the schedule you set. As needed will allow your medication to be stored in and dispensed from Hero whenever you need it.
If you're scheduling your medication for everyday or select days, enter in the time you'll be taking the medication, and how many pills to dispense for each dose. Select Finished in the Hero app, then Confirm on your Hero device.
Press Okay on Hero to start loading your medication. Remember to keep your empty pill bottles on hand, in case you need to unload your medication to travel with Hero.
Once the door on Hero opens, remove the cartridge, and fill it with your pills. Remember not to fill the cartridge above the "Max" line. Reinsert the filled cartridge, and close the door. Hero will check to see that the cartridge is firmly loaded, and save the changes made to your pill schedule.
Select Great!, and you're all set!
