Here is an article on How to Make a Medication List.

It is essential to protect your health by creating a medication list for yourself, your physicians, and caretakers. Keep this list available in case of any emergencies or questions regarding your healthcare.

Let us begin by doing the first list. It is for your prescription medications only. Get all your prescription bottles and line them up in order from morning medications to night time medications.

  • Write Allergies at the top of this list
  • Write the name of the medication (brand name and or generic name)
  • Write the milligram you are taking
  • Write how/when you are taking it (ex: am, noon, pm) and how many pills you take at these times. (Example: 1 tablet in the am)
  • Write down what you take it for (treatment for, example: hypertension)
  • Write down the name of doctor who prescribed it and the date he prescribed it
  • Visit My Medical Planner - with lots of information to keep track of all your medical needs.
