Apparently, when you go beyond 50 years old, you're supposed to have more than one script.

Some people are just slackers.

I wish I was back in the day when I only needed one...

I just found out I used up all my Flex Account already. At least it got me through most of the year.

I'm good with one. Actually I was happy to have none, but hypothyroidism really runs in my family so it was just a matter of time.

I keep an up to date list on the computer and make several copies, when folded in half they are the size of a credit card. I print them out on colored paper so they are easy to spot and keep them in my wallet. Then I can hand folks a copy when they ask and always have a reference.
So true PF. I take 14 different meds daily. Some of them twice. I keep the weekly updated list right beside my bed. Every time I have had to call 911, they ask what meds I am on. I just point to the list. They take it with them to the hospital and give it to them. That list has a lot of information on it. I am so glad Winthrop provides that for me. I also take it with me when I am going to a new doctor. The paper work always asks you to list your meds. I just attached the list to it. Can you imagine my trying to list them with their medical names during a heart attack? Some of my meds are taken daily and some PRN such as the nitro. Some are delivered on a weekly basis and some on a monthly. There is no way I could remember all of this in the time of a heart attack. I can't even remember it when I am fine and just trying to remember to take them on a daily basis.
