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.

To our Online Community Members,

We wanted to let you know that our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service have been updated. The changes are intended to foster more civil discussions in AARP’s online communities. The issues discussed in these communities – including healthcare, retirement and politics – are serious and stir up strong emotions. We should have spirited debates about all of them, but those debates should always be respectful, on topic and fact based. We will be applying these standards in our online communities as we work together, with all of you, to address the challenges that face older Americans. Thank you.
