It may be easy to forget when to take your medicine especially when you’re taking several at different intervals. Although it might not seem like much, some medicine may have adverse effects if you skip a dose. Thus, it is important to take them as prescribed.
As a provider of home care services in Loganville, Georgia we can give you some medication reminder tips:
- Keep a list
Keep track of your medication in a small notebook or a smartphone and make sure to track changes.
- Take your medications at the same time every day
Incorporate your medication with your daily routine such as your breakfast, brushing your teeth, or bedtime.
- Use a pillbox
Have a pillbox with the days of the week to remind you which medicine to take daily. Place it in a visible area such as a kitchen table away from moisture, heat, light, children, and pets.
- Keep a calendar
Write down doses and when refills are due so you can contact your healthcare provider or pharmacist before it’s gone.
- Set an alarm
Have reminders on your phone or watch to remind you to take your pills.
