Permanently Mark OTC Dosage on Bottle

Instead of trying to read the small print on some OTC (Over-The-Counter) adult medications, I will write clearly with a red fine tip permanent marker, the dosage and how often to take, directly on the bottle.


For example, on a bottle of cold medicine, if it says to take one capsule every 6 hours. I write "1" and circle it. Next to this I write "6 HRS". This makes it easier for us. There are times when you are not feeling well and reading some of the small print seems like a chore.

Be sure you double check to ensure the information you write is correct. I wouldn't advise this for a young child's medication since the dosage may change according to the child's age/weight.

Permanently Mark OTC Dosage on Bottle

Great idea! For the visually impaired, I'd recommend getting someone with better eyesight to read the directions originally.

I have a unique tool, called a Voxcom. The reusable digital cards that came with it each have 10 seconds of recording time. I can record the med, dosage, and number of refills, and attach the card to the bottle with a rubber band threaded through the card's "keyhole."


If a variation of either of these suggestions works for someone, great! (08/14/2009)
