Remembering to take medication
If you have had an accident or are suffering from an illness, then you may be required to take quite a lot of medication for a little while. If you are not used to taking medication and have various types where you are taking them at different times of day for different periods of time, then it can be stressful trying to remember to take everything.
If you have been prescribed medication, then it is important that you take it when you need to in order to make sure you get better as quickly as possible. Not taking medication that has been prescribed may have a negative effect on your condition also. Here are some tips on remembering to take the medication you have been prescribed:
- Get a calendar. Mark on your calendar which medications need to be taken and when. You may want to come up with a coloured code for your different medications so that you can fit all of the information you need to onto your calendar.
- Keep your medication close by. If you take the majority of your medication in the morning or night, then have it next to your bed so that you can take it when you go to bed or wake up. Another great place for medication is the bathroom, as you are likely to visit this room most often throughout the day.
- Set alarms. Alarms which ring when it is time to take medication can help you not to miss a pill. Set your alarm to go off just before you need to take your medication so that you can locate it if it is not close to hand.
- Look into pill boxes or bags. If you are taking various medications throughout the day, look for pill boxes which you can sort your medication into and carry it around with you wherever you may be. This will also help you to prevent missing one.
