so I've been taking the same medicine for a while now and it really helps me but I've been forgetting to take it. when I forget to take it I feel fine for a couple of days but after 3 days off I feel awful. how can I keep remembering to take it? I've tried setting alarms and those still don't seem to help me

      I’m also on lexapro and the same thing happens to me, I think after three days I go into drug withdrawal and I get super exhausted and lightheaded. The only thing I can do to stay on track is have someone keep me accountable and watch me take it or call or text to make sure I’ve done it

      I use Amazon's pill pack, they separate your medications into daily packets so it's easy to tell if you've taken them or not, and then I just leave them right by my bedroom door so I remember to take them before I leave my room and when I'm going to bed

      The toughest part w the pill trays is I procrastinate filling them up

      pill organizers have been so helpful you can get them at convenience stores and all you have to do is fill them up once a week and leave it in a place you’ll see it

      Hi. Here's a practice I put into play now since I too was skipping meds. You know the Sun thru Sat med tray. I take the specific day out and leave it out on my kitchen table. There are no children here to mess w it. It helps to remind me

      I personally have a week pill container kinda thing - I put it on top of something I need to make it through the day - like my glasses case or my phone and I often keep something to drink nearby to help - its a rough habit to get into but I hope it helps
