Use Pill Box For Weekly Medication

I sort out most of my medicines into a weekly pill box. There is one that won't fit, it is a chewable tablet. I take it twice a day at no specific times. I have the bottle on the bathroom counter. I would sometimes forget if I took them or not. Now when I take the second dose for the day, I turn bottle upside down. If I am not sure I took it later in the day, I check the bottle. If it is upside down; yes I took it. If it is right side up; no I didn't.


In the morning I turn the bottle rightside up after I take it. If I am not sure I took it, again, check the bottle. If it is still upside down; no I didn't take it. Right side up; yes I did take it. This works for me. Maybe you can adapt this routine to help you with your medicine.

Good idea.

I also have a problem remembering to take my medication especially in the morning. I had to establishing a routine as these meds are essential.


At night when I take my meds, I put the morning meds in a small pimento jar and set it at my place at the table. I take it when I have breakfast. I have one pill that is refrigerated so I get that out, take my meds and put the empty jar back with my 7 day pill boxes.

Even then, sometimes I will forget to take the morning meds. Several times, my sweet husband has brought it to me with a glass of water.
