to keep in mind:

you take pills throughout the day, a divided organizer will
keep doses separate and reveal at a glance if any were missed.
you take big pills or many pills, get a large capacity
organizer, so you don't have to cram.
you forget your pills (regardless of how many or few you
take), a pill reminder can keep you on schedule.
you prefer to put pills together daily, get a daily
organizer. If you'd rather do this chore once a week, get
a weekly organizer. If once a month sounds about right, go
for a monthly organizer.

as your loved one's capabilities, in choosing a medication
organizing system. You may need a locking system, one that

be monitored over the internet.
Weigh the costs
course, cost is another factor to consider. Simple pill
containers can be had for less than $10. Automated dispensers,
on the other hand, can run several hundred. When is it worth
it to pay the big bucks?
When your pills are critical. A quality pill-taking
system is cheap insurance against emergency room visits and/or
health problems due to over or under-dosing.
When the timing of your pills is critical. Ditto.
When your pill-taking regimen is complex. You need a
robust solution that is both dependable and flexible.
When you're feeling anxious, dispirited or overwhelmed about
pill-taking. A highly reliable system can restore
needed peace of mind.

the IdentiMed comes in handy:
Visiting the doctor? Take along your IdentiMed pill
pages and you'll have a complete, accurate and up-to-date record
of your current medications and dosages. (Each pill even
appears in a self-contained pill pocket next to relevant
information: prescribing doctor, reason for taking, frequency of
dosing, etc.) You're spared some head-scratching and your doctors
are effortlessly kept
informed, minimizing the possibility of errors.
Relying upon someone else to make up your pills?
It's easy to make a mistake when
assembling pills for someone else. You're not familiar
with the pills or the dosing frequency or quantity.
IdentiMed neatly solves this problem, by supplying complete
information and identifying each and every pill taken (including
a sample of each). What's that worth should you find
yourself in the hospital, with strangers in charge of your meds?
Give the IdentiMed a try, and
you'll likely wonder how you ever managed your pill regimen without it.
