In my time as a cancer patient, I’ve had the dubious honor to receive tons of medical prescriptions. You may have, too.
During my bone marrow transplant, the days were filled to the brim with taking medications of all sorts on top of my daily visits to the clinic. At first, it was almost too much! So many medicines and so many special requirements – take with food, no food, not within so many hours of certain other medications, no grapefruit, etc.
Once I managed to parse through everything, I designed a scheduling chart of all the meds so I could keep on track. After receiving a stamp of approval from my medical team, I printed out the chart and taped it to the refrigerator where it would always be within easy reach.
I have to say, that chart was a real life saver. As tired and foggy as I was during the transplant, having an easy-to-access reference saved me from inadvertent mistakes time and time again.
Nowadays, my prescriptions are greatly reduced, but I still take medicine and/or doctor-approved supplements multiple times a day. Not surprisingly, I still need a schedule of reminders to help make certain I’m keeping up with the doses and, importantly, not accidentally doubling up. So I’ve updated my chart.
My goal on this site is to help patients, especially other cancer patients. So in recognition of Cancer Survivor Month, I’d like to make this Daily Medication Tracker available to you also free of charge. It’s a fillable pdf form and can be easily edited as medications change. I find it incredibly helpful. I think you will, too.
You can print it out and check the boxes as you go, or you can use it on a computer, tablet or smartphone to keep abreast of your daily doses.
