When I was on vacation, I was so relaxed that I kept on forgetting to take my meds. More than once. So when I got home (when I was less relaxed), I looked into some things that might help.
Because, let’s face it. We all forget to take our meds. One time or another. No matter what we have to take or when we have to take them. No matter how hard we try.
Since I have to take several pills at different times a day, I put them in places where I’d have to fall over them to forget. I wish I could say it’s fool-proof, but I’d be lying.
So here are some possible solutions…
Set reminders on your smart phone. An alarm. Or a pillbox you can program with different time alarms. There are even prescription bottle devices that use light and sound to signal when it’s time to take a pill. Here are some pretty neat options that are available to you from http://www.epill.com/bestseller.html
The e-pill Multi-Alarm PLUS:
It’s a pillbox that organizes all your daily pills. The box is set up with an alarm that can ring up to 37 times a day as a reminder to take your pills. If you take different meds at different times of the day, they can be organized here and reminder alarms ring at the programmed times.
How does it work?
There’s a pill tray which slides out and contains 7 compartments. Each compartment can hold up to 18 aspirin-sized tablets. To set the alarm, you simply slide a switch. The alarm will now be set up to repeat daily and can ring up to 37 times a day from 6am-12am with a switch for every hour and half hour.
It can be set for 6am, 6:30am, 7am etc… Once the alarm rings, it will sound for 10 second intervals on and off for up to 4 minutes, if the STOP button is not pressed. If your medication hasn’t been taken when the alarm sounds, a missed pill message will flash on the display.
Special features of the e-pill Multi-Alarm PLUS:
1) The alarm doesn’t need to be reset because it automatically resets every night at midnight.
2) The pill tray is easy to open and the display is easy to read.
3) It has a missed pill indicator.
1) The size of the e-pill Multi-Alarm PLUS is 6 1/4″ x 2 1/8″ x 1″ and weighs 5 oz.
2) The pill tray slides out and has 7 compartments. Each compartment holds 18 aspirin-sized tablets.
3) The product has a one-year battery life using 2 x AAA batteries (which are included with purchase).
And everyone seems to like it!
The e-pill Multi-Alarm PLUS has been featured by Dr. OZ and is member tested and recommended by the National Health & Wellness Club.
And there are other versions of the e-pill Multi-Alarm PLUS:
The pill-box is available in children’s versions as well as smaller versions: the e-pill 37 Alarm Multi-Alarm POCKET XL and the 37 Alarm Multi-Alarm HOME that fits on a home refrigerator.
It’s kind of hard to beat success. So, if you want to purchase the e-pill Multi-Alarm PLUS, simply go to e-pill Medication Reminders at http://www.epill.com or call (800) 549-0095.
(By the way, I researched pill reminders seven ways to Sunday and all websites pointed to one solution: the e-pill Multi-Alarm PLUS. So I guess they must be doing something right!)
