When you're feeling sick, it's really hard to think of anything too complex. All you want to do is just feel better -soon. But, you need your medication to get there. Your personal medication log is a great way to take that worry off your shoulders, so you can focus on getting better.
And if it's someone else in your household that's sick, then you're probably dealing with exhaustion on top of worry and the extra work involved in caring for your 'sickie'. If you're a parent, you especially know what I mean.
For seniors, having an easy way to keep track of this vital information will not only help you if you happen to have a "senior's moment". For your visiting family who may be assisting you it can be a huge help. Believe me, they'll really appreciate it. You can give them the information they need without having to worry about finding the right time to bring up a discussion of your health issues. It's all there, in black and white, easy for everyone to understand.
But, it's not just you and your family that will benefit from your personal medication log. Bring it with you to your doctor so that they have a better picture of what your medication history has been. They'll especially appreciate knowing if you're taking other medications as well. It's vitally important to ensure that you're not mixing certain types of drugs. Or, sometimes the dosage of a medication will be altered to account for possible side effects of other medications.
I hope that you're never in this situation, but if you ever need emergency medical assistance, paramedics at the scene will greatly benefit from knowing your medication history - and make sure you bring it with you to the hospital as well. This information can be critical in an emergency.
You'll have an easy way to record both the dosage prescribed and the times medication is taken each day. One page per month, with room for notes, so you have a concise record.
