Remembering to Take Your Medicine

Here are some ways that can help you remember to take your medicine:

  • Use a pillbox. Put your medicines in a box for each day of the week or for the time of day you should take them.
  • Make a medicine checklist. Make a daily or weekly medicine checklist and keep it someplace where you will see it.
  • Set a daily routine. Take your medications about the same time everyday. Ask your doctor or pharmacist what to do if you miss a dose.
  • Leave your medicine where you can see it. Keep your medicine out of the reach of children and pets. 
  • Ask your pharmacist for help. Your pharmacist may suggest tips to help you remember.
