It’s hard to take multiple medications multiple times daily without screwing it up somewhere.
During the last days of my previous job, I kept forgetting to take my lunch-time meds. Recently, I left my prescriptions in the car and missed three days of one of my morning medications.
Missing even one dose screws me up royally. If it happens consistently I’ll get a migraine for a week.
Really, I don’t have much to complain about right now. My meds are working, and keeping myself on a regimented schedule is helping too.
But it’s frustrating that skipping one step, faltering on one detail, can send me into a tailspin that ends in an explosion of awful, constant, week-long pain and brain fog.
The next time I visit the pharmacy, I may invest in one of those old people pill reminders to help me stay on track.
What do you do to keep up with your migraine meds?
