There exists a huge selection of products made to help you remember to take your medicine. Some of them are really cool--especially if you are friends with your technology (unlike myself). I have seen apps and timers and plastic boxes and...none of them really help me. (I should admit here that the majority of the issue is my tendency to sleep in and the resulting rush to get ready.)
What does work? My wedding ring. No joke. I take my ring off every night (blah blah...irrational fear of fingers swelling...blah blah) but my hand feels weird during the day if I don't have it on. Those two facts made it the perfect daily habit to tie to the medication I need to take. I actually have one medication I take in the morning when I put the ring on and another I take when I remove the ring at night. The "naked hand" feeling serves as a built in warning system; allowing me to address any missed doses before it becomes a real issue.
If you don't have weird ring issues like me, look for another daily habit to tie to your medication dosing to. Preferably something you do every day almost mindlessly but something you will miss if it doesn't happen.
Do you have another pill minder trick? Please share in the comments!
(Before anyone asks, no I am not a professional hand model but it has always been a secret dream of mine.)
