Happy pill popping

Hi Julia and Ann, I used to be dreadful at remembering to take my tablets
then I bought 4 of those 7 day boxes with 4 compartments for each day, now when i get my tablets I put each dose in the boxes and and then can see if I have popped all the pills.
The only thing I was doing wrong was taking my thyroxine with all my other pills in a morning and after 8 years read the leaflet properly and realised that you should take them on their own before breakfast, feel much better now am taking them properly.
Love Jackie

I very rarely have to take any luckily.................I know I would forget if I had to take them every day.

I take mine at night time, and as I have caught ANOTHER stomach virus (the second in 3 weeks) didn't bother taking them last night as I knew they wouldn't stay in long!!!! Just as well they're not 'life or death' pills, just 'keeping me healthy' pills!!!

Have boxes marked for morning , noon and night, or I would be all day getting the right ones out of the cupboard as I take 6 tabs plus soluble aspirin in morning and 6 tabs at night. Also pain relief twice daily and the one which doesnt fit any timetable for my bones, it cant be taken within 4hrs of thyroxine and is taken twice daily. Good job I have never had difficulty in swallowing them. Add to that twice daily injections and you can see how I manage to stay 'healthy'!

Mac, you are naughty lol

My o.h. was put on soluble aspirin a few months ago, has to stay on it for rest of his life and he is only 54! That's a lot of aspirins lol
He was taking it every morning but on an empty stomach and his Dad and I both told him it wasn't a good idea as can cause stomach bleeds.
Now he takes it after his evening meal, but I still have to remind him most evenings and when he is on the late shift, he has to take it when he gets home so still needs a reminder. He does remember to take his blood pressure pill in the mornings, well I think he does, I am never up that early lol
I suggested one of those boxes but he poohpoohed the idea, but I will get one as a stocking filler at Christmas then he might use it.
