I remember my confusion and fear when I was learning to manage my medications for my new organs. I can assure you that it does get easier over time as it becomes a normal part of your new life.

I chose to get my medications thru the Mayo Specialty Pharmacy. They check in with me on a regular basis? They ask me: If I have any questions about my medication; if I am able to follow my prescribed medication schedule or if I would like some help; if I have concern about being able to continue my medications in the future. I am happy I did this (and my insurance does cover it) because my local folks do not know much about my anti-rejection meds.

I like to sort my medications weekly. I also purchased a pretty pill box that I can carry in my purse for special social events! -just for fun:-)
