Thank goodness I don't have to take any right now. I am really bad at remembering to take them. Of course the only time I take them is when I am sick and just being sick is usually reminder enough to take them. I used to have to take pills for blood sugar but then I lost 18 pounds and the doctor said I don't need them any more which is good because I forgot to take them half the time anyways.

hi gnomeland I have done that too for years, and some times I had some I did not have to take everyday so I had the bottles by my seven day pill box so I remember to take them three times a week. now here in Gold Crest the care givers dispense the pills to us at the proper times of day. I had to get used to this.

I have a routine of when i take my pills,but due to other things going on i have in the past not taken a few.I find that i take pills before the children go to school and then if i need an injection i will take that when they have gone to school,then mid day more pills,evening meal pills with that and again in the night.

I have to take a medication everyday in the morning and in the evening. It' an inhaler so I can't divide it in labelled boxes. Often I forget to take it or forget if I took it or not. And I prefer to miss it, because it is bad to take a double dose. It's not easy to remember!

I keep my pills in my nightstand, next to my bed. I have some I take at night, and some I take in the morning, so this way is easiest for me.
