For when you hate swallowing pills you cant change the fact but can edit the situation. I was always loosing bottles and sabotaging my own health so this is what I did I turned my painful morning coffee into tea time with oatmeal energy balls I take my medicine with something about making taking pills cuter and more Gem-like made me see it as not-so-bad, could be worse. I used a old jewelry box and 'Gem-afied' a ugly ass meds container and pill box to feel like I had a say in this.. Am I making sense? Lol
That's a great idea. You must have a very creative talent. Awesome!🌻
Just an FYI for anyone who doesn't know... My daughter worked in the pharmacy department a few years ago. She informed me that it's illegal to travel with medications not in the original dispensing bottle, with rx label, especially any controlled substance. She said it can get you into trouble with the law, as many times illegal dealers transport in unlabeled packaging. So just in case you're traveling anywhere (in the USA especially), use the original rx bottles.
I go on holiday in 3 weeks... 🐪and i have to take all original boxes for everything! 🤗And taking controlled medications abroad... 🐪i have to have doctors letter to prove they are mine 🐫(fentanyl/tramadol/diazapam are all named on the .gov website)
But at home i made these above... I love ur boxes Gem 😙
Yes, when I go to Florida to see my cousin's pace I have to get a letter from pain management with the names and doses. They have to be in the original bottle in a ziplock bag with the letter inside.. 🙄😳 This trip, I have them all seperated into the daily things like Lulabel showed you. 🤗
I have to many meds and with memory issues I use a med so that tells me when my next dose is and what to take. I also write on each lid what I take it for; fibro, migraine, asthma, sjogrens, etc. That helps my family too, if I tell them I need my emergency inhaler (e-healer) or something else, they look at the dx on life.
It's great, because I have quite a few carers it's helpful because you can choose the color of the tablets and shape or whether it's a injection or liquid, it means that they all know exactly which medications I need to take, and if I have new staff start, it's easy for them to pick up too.
