How To Get Organized With Your Medications

If you have to take a lot of medications, then it can be quite challenging to be organized. There would be days where you have a lot of tasks and you feel overwhelmed and it would be quite helpful if you didn’t have to stress about taking the right types and amounts of medications.

So, in this post, we will look at a couple of ways that you can get your medications organized so you can always ensure you’re taking the best care of your health.

Purchase A Pill Organizer

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to get your medication organized is to use a pill organizer. You can easily buy this at any pharmacy or check out our personal selection. In most cases, these pill organizers have about 7 or 8 compartments that are labeled. Each compartment is for each day of the week with an extra compartment as a spare.

This is a great way to keep your medications on track so you know exactly what to take on each day of the week. It is especially helpful if you have to take different medications on different days.

Create Reminders & Set Alarms

If you usually forget to take your medication every day at the same time, then you should put an alarm on your phone so that you’re reminded to do so. The vast majority of mobile phones have reminders and alarms that you can use. This will help you to remember exactly when to take your pills, regardless of where you are.

Create A Schedule

One of the easiest ways to remember to take your medications is to make it a habit to take them at the same time, every day. So, for example, you can make this time in the morning, before or after breakfast.

Alternatively, you can take your medications right before bed after brushing your teeth. When you have a schedule, it will make taking your medications a habit that you automatically remember every day. It is also a great strategy if you don’t want to completely rely on your phone alarm.

Store All Medications In One Area

Make sure that you store all of your medications and prescriptions in one area that is dry and safe. This area should also be secure so they don’t easily get lost or even damaged. This will make it more likely that you’ll take them when you need to.

If you travel frequently, then you should consider using the Deluxe Pill Organizer since this will keep all your pills together in one place that you can keep with you, wherever you travel.

Create A Checklist

If you need to start taking a new medication, then creating a checklist is a good idea. When you have a list that contains all of the medications you have to take as well as the quantities, times, etc., this is very helpful for yourself and your doctor. Your doctor would be able to easily see what medications you’re taking, the quantities as well as how often you’re taking them.

This will ensure they don’t prescribe additional medications that negatively interact with the pills you’re already taking. It will also be a great way to get your medications organized so that you don’t get confused or forget what you’re taking or need to take.

Speak To Your Doctor

If the medications prescribed to you by your medical professional are confusing, be sure to have a chat with them to see if there are any simpler alternatives. However, remember that your pharmacist can also help as they are a part of your healthcare team. If you have issues, be sure to also talk to your pharmacist as they can likely assist. They’d also be able to assist in creating a medication checklist to keep you organized.
