Who Do You Remeber To Take Your Medication?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My medication has added Keppra to it but I get real dizzy and "out of it" So I was told to take my lamictal at 9am and 9pm (which I use my phone alarm) Now I'm suppose to take at 11am and 11pm. My memory sucks so I do use a pill case but I forget at times and I cant take them my am pills to close to my pm pills. I used to be able to miss a dose once in awhile. Its not like that anymore. Does anyone have any memory tricks I can use.

Some medicine side effects are memory loss. My memory is so bad now that I can get lost in my own house...lol

I take both of those. But I am either dizzy or out of it. I am usually on phone, scrolling through it fast then I forget and don't even remember what happened. Lol.

Keep it next to your bed, that's what I do. When I was taking mine in the morning, and night, it'd help remind me to take it before I went to sleep, and after I woke up.

Same problem. I used an app that was good. Alarms on the phone are nice but if you forget you might not remember you took it. Don't like pill box, unless you are always at home. I put pills on all my purses and keep reminders too. Hope it helps !

I had the same issue with all my seizure medicines. I have multiple alarms on my phone and I have notes I leave on my bathroom mirror and places that I am often out so I see it and immediately go to take my medicine. Also always keep your medicine in one place. I also carry a small pill keychain with full days medicine so if I am somewhere and realize I did not take it, I have it with me.
