Right Time, Right Meds

Right time, Right med, with a Marker - Markers help grab the right meds at the right time. Use a permanent marker to label medications with time of day. 

 

There is a simple, but clever way to give loved ones who manage their own meds a hand in keeping their medications straight. You can write AM/Noon/PM with a bold marker on the lid of each medication. That way your loved one can pull out the right meds at the right time.

My father-in-law had one and I need one.

Pharmacies should give them FREE as a courtesy for those of us who regularly take 7+ meds daily!

@franceshd - Wouldn't that be nice!  I agree with you, but this is quick workaround in the meantime!

Every pharmacy sells pill containers with variety of selections for daily, three times daily and different  time choices to make certain meds are taken as requ ired.

They would require someone placing proper pills for  each time in it's slot , as required, for all seven days of one week.
