(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.
