I actually now have 8 (yes, eight) of the weekly pill boxes with the giant daily containers. I use 4 of them for my morning meds, which just about
uses all the space. I don't know quite what I'll do if the dr decides to increase my Cellcept, those capsules are big! Maybe move the multi-vitamin to the evening....
Since I started having to take 7 pills at night rather than 3, I've started using the pill boxes then, also. There is some room left in the night boxes...
I only count pills once a month. I've found that counting pills more often than that kinda presses on my "let's be depressed' button, and it's well worth the few dollars in pill boxes to avoid depression! (I do kinda' keep an eye on when my next dr appts are so that I don't count pills past the dr visit in case some change occurs....going back and re-counting is a *real* drag!
Take care, I'm interested to see if increasing cellcept allows you to drop the pred...I'd like to do that as soon as my body is ready for it! (Losing pred weight would be great!)
