Blood Pressure Medication Reminder

When it's time to remember

(HealthDayNews) -- Do you keep forgetting to take your blood pressure medication?

If so, use these tips from The U.S. National Heart Lung, and Blood Institute to jog your memory:

  • Put a picture of yourself on the refrigerator with a post-it-note saying, "Remember to take your blood pressure medication."
  • Keep your medication on the night stand next to your side of the bed.
  • Take your pills right after you brush your teeth and keep them with your toothbrush.
  • Ask a friend to leave a reminder on your answering machine and don't erase the message.
  • Place your medicine in a weekly pill box.
  • Establish a buddy system with a friend who's also on daily medication and arrange to call each other every day.
