Staying On Schedule With LEMS Meds, Pass or Fail?
If you were being graded, how would you fare when following your daily medication schedule? Would you PASS with flying colors, the apple of your doctor’s eye? Or would you be like me, sent to detention in study hall in hopes of getting remedial help?
There are a number of strategies I’ve tried to follow. Sometime’s I’m good, other times not so much. I have a 3 Day Pill holder for my Mestinon and Firdapse. Each day, as I go it, I transfer one dose to a little porcelain pill bowl a friend gave me. There they are, in that little bowl, looking at me, eager to go in my month! But will they get there? Uhhh, usually, most of the time, sometimes late. Occasionally a miss.
One strategy is to set alarms on my Apple Watch. This usually works, but occasionally there’s a fail. I tried a pill app on my phone but got tired of it annoying me all the time. I’ve not tried one of those expensive pill dispensers.
How do you do, taking your LEMS meds? What are your strategies? Have they worked well for you? I need help.
