Help If You Have To Take A Ton Of Medications A Day


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have so many medications to take and have to take them at different times. I finally went out and bought 4 identical alarm clocks and set them for the different times that I need to take the medications. Then I went and got more to remind me to eat and when to take my blood sugars.

I just didn't want to keep resetting the alarm clock for each event so I got a clock for each one. My life has been so much easier.

    I sort of do the same thing. I set the alarms on my phone to remind me to take my medication and insulin. They repeat each day and makes it easy to stay on schedule. Loved this secret ty for sharing

    I have done the same thing 5 years ago and I still have those clocks because there is no way I would remember to take them when I should. It really is a good idea. People ask me whyI have so many clocks but after explaining I know a few of them decided to do the same thing.

    I bought a "MEDport" which has 4 alarms build in, and it's portable, so I can put it in my purse and go if I am out of the house for hours at a time. It came with a pill dispenser that you can fill with each medication for each alarm time. I LOVE it.

    This 1 I have to try, sometimes I forget to take insulin. I'm supposed to take it before eating and I don't do it until after.
