Missing a beat (or ten)

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?

One thought on “Missing a beat (or ten)

  1. I take a lot of pills now for the diabetes, and it’s a hassle. I take morning and evening, so when I take the morning ones I put them in front on the shelf to indicate that I’ve already taken them, then move them back and promote the evening ones when I take those. Keeps me from taking anything twice, but I do occassionally forget the evening meds still when I’m exceptionally busy. Lunch would be tough, do you have somewhere at work you could stash a few?
