Medication mix-ups are extremely dangerous, to avoid this Linux based Speaking Medication Reminder can help to prevent these life-threatening mistakes. It first allows users to enter reminder inputs. System takes input through keyboard to accept various reminders with date and time and dosage. It then reminds patients to take the right medication at the right time. System allows users to store their medication dates and time using raspberry pi. Also users are allowed to enter dosage of each reminder. On set time the system gets the details and converts text to speech. System now speaks out the medication reminder at fed time intervals. This allows for a fully automated medication reminder system for patients. Here single board system i.e. raspberry pi 3 is used in which the database is made for the reminder time and the dose of pills with time and date. Also text to speech using an ESPEAK module in the Linux system make the work easier.
Sometimes patients forget to take the medicine at the required time of medicines. And sometimes patient also forgets which medicine He/She have to take at required time. And it is difficult for Doctor/Compounder to monitor patients around the clock. To avoid this problem, we have made this medicine reminder system for patients using automation speech which will give the speech reminder for the patient around the clock.
In the existing system, doctor or caretaker remind the patient to take the medicines in the time. Or patient will go with a normal alarm for the reminder. But doctors may not their round the clock.
In this proposed system, Both reminder and the meditation dose in being store in the database with the help of server which will automate the alarm with a speech with what medicine has to take and with how much quantity of it.

According to this system patient will have an easy way to remind their meditation time with the dose of the meditation. This project provides an easy way to enter the meditation time and dose accordingly and give the alarm as a speech where it will tell which medicine has to take and the dose of that meditation.
