Does anyone have a medic alert braclet? I read in the entocort pkg that I should get one? I think about it sometimes, like if I was in an accident or something. Just wanted to see what others thoughts were.

I hadn't really thought about a bracelet, but I do have all my doctors' business cards in my wallet and their numbers programmed into my cell phone.  I also keep a list of my meds and dosages with me.  (Actually, I need to update that again.)  If anything were to happen to me, emergency responders looking for personal or emergency contact info should find all of that and have a leg up on treating me.

I looked on the web on you can get one for about $30.00. I'm gonna do it. I just didn't know if I was being over-reactive.

I also recommend having an ICE number listed in your cell phone. Emergency responders can tell that is a contact to call if you program ICE (in case emergency) as the contact name. My husbands name comes up first on my cell and I added husband after his name so someone could tell immediately to call him even if they did not know the ICE concept.
I don;t have a bracelet because I don't take many meds that would interfere with others and I am only allergic to flagyl. I do still keep the meds and doc list with me with my license so it is easily found.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
