How to Display Your Medications in the Health App’s Summary Screen on iPhone

iOS’ Health app makes it easy for you to monitor your medical conditions, track your fitness results and overall health, and manage your prescribed medications. Ideally, you can access all of your medication by going to Summary > Medications inside the Health app. If you, however, wish to access your medications quickly, you can add them directly inside the Summary tab so that you can check whether you took or skipped the last medicine you scheduled within the Summary screen. 

How to display your medications inside the Summary screen on the Health app


Go to the Health app > Browse > Medications > More > Add to Favorites. When you do so, the Medications section will appear inside the Summary tab on the Health app. 


  1. Open the Health app on your iPhone and tap on the Browse tab at the bottom right corner. 
  2. On the Browse screen, select Medications. Scroll down to the bottom of the Medications screen and tap on Add to Favorites under “More”. 
  3. When you select Add to Favorites, the star mark will be filled in blue to indicate that it’s been enabled. You can now go back to the Summary tab and view the Medications section from there. 


What medications info shows up on the Summary screen?

When the Medications section is added to the Summary tab, you will be able to see the last medication you logged inside the Health app. The name of this medication will appear next to the Taken or Skipped label to remind you whether you consumed the last scheduled medication or forgot to take it. You can tap on the Medications section inside the Summary screen to directly go to the Medications screen on the Health app. 

Can you hide medications from the Health app’s Summary?

Yes. Like any section you add to favorites, you can also hide the Medications section from the Summary screen. To do this, go to the Health app > Summary > Medications and unselect the Add to Favorites section. 

That’s all you need to know about displaying your medications inside the Health app’s Summary screen on an iPhone.
