@rosemarya Rosemary I neglected to mention one thing in my previous response.

I find that using my”smart phone” alarms is a perfect way to stay on top of taking my medications at the correct time. I put the meds weekly in a box, and when that timer goes off I know to take them. I really do not know how I would remember them as well without that aid.

Right now I have four alarms set.
The first pack my meds if I am going to my health club to be there at 9:00.
The second one to take my pills.
The third one to fast for two hours before I take my imodium (the immunosuppressants have caused me to need imodium)
and the fourth to take the imodium.
The alarms really keep me on track.

@contentandwell – I depend on my phone to remind me to take my research meds because I start in the morning when I wake up (this time varies ) and then my second dose is 8 hours later so that varies also, plus it is in the middle of the afternoon vs. at a meal. I learned not to care where I am when the alarm goes off because I would forget if I did not have the alarm.
