Kelly’s Korner – Personal Pharmacy

Kelly's Korner

Do you ever feel like you are a walking pharmacy?  

Making sure you have all your appropriate medications is very important.  Stop at your local pharmacy and find a pill organizer that will work best for your needs.  I always try to keep 24 hours of medication with me at all times, especially if you have a very busy day.  Also make sure that you store them properly when you are out and about.  On your med sheets from the pharmacy, you should easily be able to find the recommended storage for your medications.

If you need to, use a calendar to mark a day of the week that you are going to fill your pill planner.  I find that Sunday evening is the easiest.  This allows you to see what meds you may need refilled.  It also allows ample time for the doctors office to be contacted if there are no more refills on your prescription.  Doing those few easy steps helps you keep on track with your meds!

Talk to your doctor about any supplements you are taking to make sure they are right for you.   – All the best until my next post, Kelly
