      I have two daily pill keepers. They have a morning and night spot. And every other Sunday I spend time sorting my pills and sending in refills for the one I'm running short of. That way I always have my medications ready to go first thing in the morning. It also reminds me to take my morning insulin

      also, I used to take afternoon meds but almost always forgot them- I worked with my doctors and we were able to remove that dose. but the bubble packs did help because I could remove a couple of the afternoon ones and put them in my bag so when I was out and my alarm went off, I had some

      i get my daily meds in bubble packs from my pharmacy. it's like a "sheet" of meds, one sheet is a week of meds with spots for morning, afternoon, night and bedtime. each spot has the meds listed on each individual bubble. i only take morning and bedtime meds. it's prefilled so I don't have to remember to fill a pillbox (I tried that and I was always forgetting). alarms help a little bit.

      I have a huge pill organizer that I fill every week. I hate doing it but when you take as many meds as I do it helps.

      I know pill containers help people, but I felt keeping them in their original bottles. They help because I can read the label and instructions. Also, I arrange my bottle with day on the left side and night on the right.

        @MsDaisyMae that's a good idea

        @MsDaisyMae I keep mine in the original prescription bottles too! I like seeing what I’m taking but I can usually guess what it is when I shake it 😂 I don’t take that much anymore to have to even organize them

      I have a monthly 4 compartment pill box. I take meds 4 times a day so it was kinda hard to find this. I really like my pill organizer, the days are removable so I can take them with me to class and such. It also helps me remember what day of the month it is cuz adhd sucks

        @Beetlejuul If you have an iPhone as well the health app can send you medication reminders which I always use. They do get kinda annoying when I am on time with my meds but it’s super helpful for my weekly and monthly shots. This is the pill box I use, I believe you can modify it on Amazon to have it have 2 slots or 3 slots for daily meds. https://a.co/d/92iSkQt

      My weekly pill box reminds me what day it is when my alarm goes off at lunchtime.

      I have a weekly day night pill box. Also if I'm taking temporary medications or new medications I will put reminders in my calendar. I also have an alarm go off to remind me to take my midday medications

      Due to my ADHD I have found that the only way I remember to take my meds at the right time is via an app. I'm using https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.smartpatient.mytherapy I am not linked to the app in any way other than I've used it on both an Apple iPhone and Android. My galaxy smart watch even shows the notification

      I have a weekly pill keeper, a plastic container that I keep all of my current pill bottles in, and I have multiple morning and evening reminders on my phone for taking my medication.
