Benefits of using a pill organizer
Rather than digging around for your pills in the medicine cabinet every time it’s time to take one, you can easily arrange them so that they are all at your fingertips. This is especially important if your medications are time-dependent!
Easier to keep track of.
Taking all of your medications sounds simple enough, but it can be easy to lose track especially if you’re taking multiple. Using a pill organizer can give you a visual reminder to take your medications and indicate if you missed a dose.
Finally, a good pill organizer is just more attractive than depending on your prescription pill bottles! This isn’t just an aesthetic benefit, either — having your pill organizer out on display rather than hidden away in a cabinet can help keep you on track.
How to organize your medications
Need more tips on wrangling all of those meds? Read on for our expert tips to keep all of those pills in order.
First, take inventory of all of your medications.
Start with your prescription medications, then move on to any over-the-counter drugs and/or supplements that you’re using. Then, read your prescription instructions and dosage recommendations to determine how frequently you’re meant to take your pills, and how many you need to take for each dosage.
This is also a good time to go through any older medications you might have and dispose of them if they are expired or no longer necessary.
Sort your medications based on frequency.
Next, you’ll want to get all of your pills properly sorted based on the frequency and times that you need to take them. Start with your daily medications, making sure that you have the correct dosage for each day. You may also need to divide your medications into morning and night if you have time-dependent prescriptions. Then consider your weekly and monthly medications and put them in the appropriate pill pouches/compartments.
Labeling your prescriptions has two benefits: it keeps everything organized and lets you know if you have missed a dose. Organize all of your medicines and supplements based on the day and/or time of day that you need to take them, and label them appropriately.
It might also help to keep a master list of all the medications that you take each day of the week so that you can verify whether or not you’ve missed any doses. This is especially helpful if you take different kinds of medications every day.
Create a routine and find ways to remind you to take them.
After your pills and organized and tucked away safely into their appropriate compartments in your organizer, all you have left is to find ways to make sure that they are integrated into your routine! For an easy reminder that’s always at your fingertips, set alarms on your phone or consider using an app that lets you distinguish which alarm is for which medication.
Finally, make sure to set aside time every week/month to resort and organize your pills for the upcoming cycle.
Staying on top of all of your medications can be easier said than done, especially if you have multiple pills and capsules you need to take care of. Investing in a beautiful and practical pill organizer from Dosey can help you integrate those medications seamlessly into your routine.
