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.
