Keeping Track of Your Medications When You Have More Than One Illness Or Condition

5 stars

Today’s Americans take more medications, vitamins, and supplements than past generations. A Consumer Reports survey reveals that the average American who uses prescription drugs takes four each day. If taken at the wrong time or under the wrong circumstances, however, these medications can prove dangerous. Thankfully, a variety of new apps and devices ease the hassle of managing multiple prescriptions or over-the-counter drugs. Top options are highlighted below:

Make the Most of Your Mobile Device

Set alarms on your phone to remind you when to take various medications throughout the day. Better yet, download a medication management app. These offer a variety of tools to help you keep on top of times, dosages, and other considerations. Favorites include Dosecast and CareZone.

Vibrating Pill Reminders

Smartphone alarms and apps work wonders for many patients. They may, however, prove minimally effective for those dealing with hearing impairments. Thankfully, an alternate option exists: vibrating pill devices. Vibrating dispensers can be relied upon to provide multiple types of reminders. Vibrating watches may be even more useful, as they can accompany patients as they go about their day.

Establish a Routine

No matter how many apps or vibrating devices are integrated into your daily life, you’ll ultimately stand a far better chance of keeping on top of medications if you integrate them thoroughly into your daily routine. Many patients successfully take medications at mealtime. Others opt for early in the morning or right before bed. Consult your physician to determine the best course of action.
