All of a sudden I am having memory problems, such as have I taken my medication. I use a pill weekly container, but on a Sunday I am prone not to fill it up until Monday. So when I take Sundays, I cannot remember if I took my evening dose. I have an alarm set, but if I am asleep, just turn alarm off and now I cannot remember if I even took it 2 hours later!!
Curly most Pharmacies have these packets you can order now that have your meds divided and in packets with date and time and they dont cost extra
I take an afternoon pill. After I take all my morning meds, I take that specific afternoon med and put the bottle on the kitchen counter, where I'll be sure to see it.
That’s happened to me. I used to miss my medication a lot.
Now I fill the weekly container. I have to take my medication 3 times a day. Each morning, I take the daily amount out and put the morning share next to my tea glass, at lunch time: next to my plate and in the evening also next to my plate. This way I can see my medication right in front of my eyes and won’t miss it. It has helped me a lot.
Lately ,if I miss my medication, I feel an aura. Then i tell myself: oh may be you did you take your medication!! And look at the place I left my Med and see the pill lying there. I take the pill immediately and the aura is gone.
I decided to purchase an Apple Watch. I use the app “Epsy” which is synced to the watch. It has an alarm and vibrates on my wrist. Also, the watch has fall detection that notifies my family if a fall as well as 911. Well worth the $300
I have terrible memory problems. Pill container and alarm is a good idea, but I leave my meds visible. Sometimes my dresser or next to coffee pot. A place you frequent during the day. Put a sticky note on the fridge or bathroom mirror. Tell a loved one to remind you. My husband asks me daily, which also reassures him. Get into a routine. Taking them as part of bedtime routine is a good way of remembering your meds before you sleep. Hope that helps.
