How to tell alexa when you have taken your medication so I can ask her when I took them so I don't forget or take them or a double amount?

I'm no whiz with the new features, but I just tried "Alexa remember that I took my medication at 8 AM this morning".  Then I asked, "Alexa when did I take my medication?"  Alexa responded, "You told me that I took took my medication at 8 AM this morning".  I think you could refine it more and say more specifics like "I took my aspirin 81 milligrams at 8 AM on May 18th.

I am having trouble with that too!  Also the concept of how to erase the reminder?  Hopefully one of the tech whiz types will help us please.

Search the skill list for "medication" or "pill". There are a few listed but none have rave reviews. Perhaps one of those will do what you would like.

Not what you asked, but I've set reminders during the day take my meds at a set time, example; 7:45 PM take parvastatin.
I take my meds when reminded, then I don't need to remember when I took it.
I've been enjoying my first echo dot, so ordered another for another room.
