Agreed... Above post I think is fairly efficient.. Considering my circumstances.. Which I really don't want to divulge in a whole lot.

Not all meds are on a set schedule, some are on an "as needed" basis (asthma inhalers, as one example). I would imagine that sort of thing a dog would be very useful for, far more so than an alarm.

That is correct from my understanding, I'd have to double check to be sure but I recall a fellow stating his dog brings him his meds in the event of panic attack since he looses thought/reality when it happens.

Right, if you were physically incapable of getting to your meds when you need them and that's what the dog does for you then that would be a task.
