this is the second time ive had to count pills in a few days and i hope i did it right cause if not i just took 8mg haldol, which wont hurt me but will make me restless…idk how to remember when i literally open a drink to take my pills, then take a drink then can’t remember if i took it or not. i guess i could get a pill doser.
Yeah SZ or meds are pretty rough on memory. I’ll think of something like a word to say and it just disappears.
i was tested as a kid and they said i had a short term memory disorder, def could be the meds tho, i was on em since age 11…so i guess i’ll never know. but my memory is terrible
I take my meds
First thing in the morning.
So that I don’t have to think about it anymore.
I take mine at night but immsure id still forget if i actually swallowed em in the morning too
Get a pillbox. They sell them at the drugstore but I ordered one off the internet.
I second the pillbox suggestion.
I havean awful memory, but a pillbox lets me know if I have taken meds.
I third it. Without a pill minder, I would be lost and constantly forget to take them or take them more than once. I have 3, one for my supplements, one for my morning pills, and one for my evening pills. Morning pills as soon as I get up then evening pills between 4-5. I have an alarm on my phone set for 5pm just to remind me in case I forget. Yes, I have obsessive-compulsive personality traits but if I didn’t I wouldn’t function that well. Everything has to have a routine or it will be forgotten.
i use a pill box to make sure i took my meds. I forget fast also if i took them so i check the pill box several times
Hello @lekkerhondje ! What are you spending your time on?
Use a pillbox and set alarms on your phone.
Works for me.
My memory is atrocious
hey jonathan =)
i work a lot on music every day and i watch movies/series with my dad.
How you been doing?
I’m alright. Just a bit tired.
Will see my psychiatrist on Tuesday.
Good luck with the music and series and see you around on the forum.
me too, its like ill take my meds then a bit of time idk if i took them so i kinda small scale panic thinking if i took it and forgot and take it again i will be over medicated but if i didnt take it and dont take it now then i will have missed a dose
i solved this by using a pill reminder box and taking meds at same time every day with an alarm
I noticed you mentioned being on Haldol. I did the same thing when I was on haldol, can’t even count how many times I had to sit there and recount pills cause I couldn’t remember if I took.
On abilify that hasn’t happened once though.
