Right Dose, Right Time, Right Way!
Adhering to your prescribed medication regimen is essential for success. If you skip doses, change your regimen, or avoid taking your medications altogether, this can be detrimental to your health. Errors can also cause setbacks such as the need for hospitalization, more visits to providers, and increased medical costs. Make sure you are taking the right dose, at the right time, in the right way!
Always carry an updated list of your medications with you. It should include the names of your medications, doses, and how often you take them. Make a small copy for your wallet, leave a copy with a family member or neighbor, and have a copy at your home.
Use weekly pill boxes and place them in a spot where you can see them during your routines.
Set recurring, scheduled reminders or alarms on your cell phone to remind you to take your medications.
If your regimen is too cumbersome or expensive to maintain, have an honest conversation with your provider to discuss options.
