Clocks Changing And Medication

Clocks Changing And Medication

How are people managing in the UK with the clocks/time changing who take lots of medication? and is it effecting your seizures?

Clock changing doesn't affect the taking of my medication... I just cannot understand why this happens. Coming from South Africa two years' ago, this never affected us as our timing was the same all year round!

You can now purchase clocks which can be set with alarms to tell you when to take your meds, when to get up and when to go to bed along with a number of other reminders. They come with not only a noise but a written message on the face when the alarm goes off. Otherwise they just look like a normal digital clock. These where developed primarily for those with (memory loss due to old age) there we go another time I can’t think of a word and have to use nearly a whole sentence to say what I mean. So back on track another idea may be to have a wrist watch that you set with more than one alarm with different time length between when you require your meds which you would not have to change every time zone you past through. We have the same problem down under we call it daylight saving. Luckily the state I live in thinks God gets up early enough and doesn’t think he needs to get up any earlier but what a bummer when you have to go from one state to another and either gain an hour or loss an hour by just crossing an imaginary line called a state boarder. Hope this gives you some ideas to consider.

When I fly home yo the East Coast I generally know well in advance. Three hour time difference and Nova Scotia is 3 hours ahead.
Prior to flying I gradually get my meds on their time zone. That way it is only when I fly home that causes disruptions. I gradually get myself back on Mountain Time. Wendy
