Our Pharmacist Steph Pacey answers your healthcare questions.
I have to take multiple medicines and I am getting confused on what they are for, and when to take them all. Can you help?
Here at LloydsPharmacy, we are experts in medicines and our Pharmacist’s are there for you to discuss any questions or concerns you have.
To help you, why not try to;
- create your own timetable that states what time you need to take your medication. Place it somewhere visible like on your fridge.
- use a pillbox. They can help ensure you take the right dosages and are handy to take out with you.
- make taking your medication part of your daily routine. Take it when you do something at the same time every day – such as making breakfast or watching the news.
- get your family and friends to help you. Could they drop you a text or give you a quick call to help remind you? You could also set alarms on your mobile phone.
Pop into your local LloydsPharmacy and speak to our Pharmacist about a FREE Medicines Check Up. They will help put your mind at rest and tell you what your different medications are doing to help improve your condition. They can also help you understand how and when to take your medicines.
