How To Help Keep Track Of Your Medication
You know how it goes: You get sick, and then you take some medicine. Pretty simple, right? In theory, yes.
The reality is something else entirely.
As the year starts new we’re all preparing for spring holiday travel, I thought it would be a good time to remind our readers of some of the things they can do to stay on top of their prescription medications during their travels.
Here are a few tips that could help you avoid any mishaps:
If you’re traveling outside your country, be sure to bring all your medications with you in your carry-on luggage so that you don’t lose them or have them stolen.
My grandmother recently gave me some great advice about staying on top of my medications when traveling: Whenever I go somewhere, she says, I should bring extra supplies of my medications just in case I need them. It’s a good idea to have a full supply because you never know what may happen and whether you’ll need more than usual.
It can also help to develop a schedule for taking your medications. If you take medication at specific times every day or week, set an alarm or establish routines that will remind you when it is time to take your medicine.
Do as I do: invest in a pill container. This will help you organize your medications. Separate the medications in the container to avoid confusion,
You know the drill:
- Have a schedule for your medication
- Take your medications regularly
- Make sure you have an extra supply when you travel
- Keep track of your schedule
- Invest in a pill container
- Organize your medications properly
- Don’t forget to take all your meds in case you travel out of the country
