Drug management defined as giving drugs to the patient on assigned time. The aim of these systems is to deliver the correct drug to the patient who needs it. These kinds of systems increase the confidence of the patient by making him/her independent of the nurse. In this paper, with the use of Mikro Basic software and microcontroller (PIC16F877A), we designed the system which delivers drugs to the patient on assigned time and in three ways (which are chosen with the input switch). One way is by setting the time of each box of drugs. The second is by phone calling on drug delivery time and the other is by sending radio frequencies from control center and receiving them in drug delivery system. Actually, this system is as a reminder for using drugs on time especially for children and aged people.
