any advice on how to get my 20 yr old to remember to take her meds. she is so forgetful, i think this may be part of her seizures but seems her short term memory is shot..

congrats. very happy to hear about your girl. hm, i would get her one of those weekly containers that hold your meds. i forgot what it is called. it has a separate box for every day of the week. i use that and look back on it to see if i took my meds or not.

Congratson the year! Woo-hoo! I'm with AnonymousMe.. Those pill boxes are lifesavers for many (me included) we tend to take so many meds, it's hard to distinguish which we have/haven't taken. Good luck!

Congratulations! It's good to hear that she hasn't had a seizure recently.  I am 21 and have been having seizures since I was 13.  The best advice I have about remembering to take medicine is to get into a routine.  Make sure she always has it with her, in her purse or backpack.  That way if she forgets in the morning she will remember when she finds it in her bag.  If she keeps a small dose next to her bed at night it will be easier to remember before she goes to sleep.  Also, setting an alarm has helped me.  Good luck... I hope things continue to go well :-)
