Usually I take 3 Colazal, a probiotic, a vitamin, biotin and prilosec in one swallow so normally I don't even glance at the pills. Guess I should start huh? And no Dawn, we can be idiots together! LOL

I sometimes cannot remember if I took my pills at certain times so I take them and I'm likely doubling up but luckily because I only take natural stuff it's not an issue...it's frustrating though, makes you feel old when you can't remember if you took some pills or not.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

Sometimes I can't remember if I've taken mine yet or not, either and I'm only 24...so don't feel old, pb4! I need to get one of those pill organizers.
24 years old
Diagnosed with UC March 2007; yet to go into remission
Asacol 4 tablets 3x/day
Rowasa (generic) - daily

LOL..I think anything we do daily sometimes seems we've done it anyway when we haven't..especially when we remember to take pills and then forget to take them, because it seems we did when we didnt'...see how confusing it is..lol!

The organisers definitely help me.

Ha! That's exactly why I got my organizer - BUT it only works when you REMEMBER to put the right pills in! LOL  Oh yeah, I forgot to report that my acid reflux and stomach pain are now gone again.  tongue

great to hear the reflux pain has gone after taking your meds again.

Set up a day to refill them, such as Sunday evening.

I do have a set day. I refill them every Monday when the kids are at school so they don't distract me. I do both mine and my gma's at the same time. Guess my heads were in the clouds that last time I refilled it!

Considering your busy and lots-of-things-happening-with-your-health life, it's easy to get distracted.

I remember when I was doing my vitamins....I have them in the cupboard in order. I do three vitamin C (AM and PM) and then one multi-vitamin (for the AM)...etc.
I was putting three multi instead of the C....thankfully I noticed the difference in colour....because 6 multi a day wouldn't have been good..lol!
