Many Americans take more than one medication a day. With this being said, it is very important to make sure to take the correct drugs at the correct time. What is the best way to do so? Here are some simple yet very helpful tips to organize your medicine in order to keep on track.
Keep Your Medicine in One Place
This will prevent forgetting to take your medications. It is best to pick a visible location, for example, the nightstand, next to the coffee maker or right in the bathroom medicine cabinet. Whatever location works best, it helps to keep all people that have medication in the household all in the same spot as well. Just be sure to keep each person’s pills clearly marked.
Use a Pill Organizer
As already stated above, keeping your medicine organized is vital to your health. Another great way to do so is with a pill organizer; especially if there are multiple people in the household. They are easy to find and come in different colors. Pill organizers will have separate sections for each day of the week. This allows you to sort each medicine according to exactly when you need to take it.
Set a Schedule
Most people are creatures of habit, and this carries over to taking medication. It’s easier to remember to take pills if they’re taken at the same time. There are plenty of resources available to help set a medication schedule. Whether it’s right before breakfast or right before bed find what works best for you and stick to it!
These tips will help get your medicine organization on track. However before making any changes contacting your doctor and/or pharmacist is always a good idea.
