Taking Medicines

Frequently Asked Questions

10. How can I remember when to take all the different medications that my doctor has prescribed for me?

Keep a checklist of all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you take. For each medicine, mark the amount you take, the time of day you take it, and whether it should be taken with food. Store two copies of the list: one on the refrigerator door or where your medications are stored, and one in your wallet or purse.
