Medicine Reminder?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I take Levetiracetam and tomapax in the morning and at 6pm. I have my alarm is set for both times but sometimes I don't here the one in the morning or I take it and I'll forget that I did rather it's in the morning or afternoon. What I am asking is how do you keep track or what are you using to make sure you didn't forget?

In the past, I take pills 3x a day. I bought round pill containers at wallgreens any the sell them w 7 in 1 sale. I bought 3 of them. They sell them w labels for each day, but it's supposed to be for 1 a day, that's why you'd buy 2. The containers connect to eachother. Set them up w labels for each day. The labels come w the containers then weekly I'd set up my pills w the morning dose on top,my middle in the middle & night dose at the end. So I'd have Sunday through Saturday all set upm& in my medicine cabinet. When you go to bed put your next day's pills next to your alarm. That way when you wake up you'd see them. And keep the container w you. You'd see if you'd taken your next dose. And do the same the next day. I've been taking pills for close to 50'years, so I've learned how to set my self up. Good luck!

I also keep up with my seizure activity by logging it in on the useful applications you can download for people with epilepsy. its a big help in which you can keep up with all your health needs and information. you can download the my epilepsy diary on your ipad or other device so you can keep up with you seizure activity and also you medications and other medical needs.

If you have a smartphone there is a app called "PocketRx" you can set reminder alarms and then there's a "take" button you can push after to let yourself remember you took the last dose.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member, Hello. I don't hear my alarms either. Sudden loud noises trigger seizure so I set 3 reminders for my medications. it helps a Lot because I get sidetracked and forget again. It's a unique sound so it stands out from the typical sounds. My dose is 7000 mgs a day.
My daughter sorts my medications because I've made many errors that cause severe reactions. She purchased a stand that holds 31 day containers. It also has an alarm that's setup for the day/times and so on. Even with that i make errors at times because I've many conditions. I digress... Whatever doesn't trigger a seizure, give it a try. Process of elimination. :)
