tips to help you remember to take your medication
- Get a pillbox and divvy up a week's worth of medicine at the beginning of the week—it will be easier to see if you've taken your daily dosage.
- Set smartphone pill reminders using your alarm or apps.
- Create a daily routine—keep your medication at-the-ready in the same place that you do other daily tasks, like by your toothbrush, on your night stand, next to your towel post-shower, or at the breakfast table.
- Use the automated refill program at the Meijer Pharmacy to ensure that your prescription is refilled before you run out—you'll get a phone call when it is ready for pick up!
Make sure to ask your pharmacist if your medication should be taken at specific times!
