In our busy lifestyles, it can be difficult to remember to take your medications every day. This becomes even more difficult with some medications that have to be taken more than once a day, or within a certain time frame to be effective. As the UK’s favourite online pharmacy, we are delighted to share some of our tips with you.
One simple, but often overlooked, method of ensuring you always remember to take your medications is ensuring you always have an adequate supply at home! At Pharmacy to My Door, we offer NHS prescriptions online, allowing you to order your repeat prescriptions and have the medicines delivered straight to your door. There’s no need to visit your GP or pharmacy, and the medicines are delivered promptly and discretely.
At Pharmacy to My Door, you can keep track of the medications you have previously ordered and ensure that you don’t forget to order any each time you log in. You can even set up alerts to remind you when it’s time to order your next repeat prescription, so you’ll never be without them.
There’s little point in having repeat prescriptions ordered online if you are unsure when you need to take each medication. If you struggle to remember to take your medications, there may be simple things you can do to remind yourself. Set an alarm each day for the correct time to take your medicine; this could be on your phone or alarm clock. Leaving your medications in a specific place may also help. For example, if you always take your tablets at breakfast time, leaving your medications besides the cereal boxes or toaster may help.
A dosset box allows you to place your medications into a series of small boxes for the entire week and includes boxes for morning, lunchtime, afternoon and evening medications. Using a dosset box may help you remember which medications you need to take, and at which time. You will also be able to see if you have missed a medication.
