To make it easier to face the cost and inconvenience of taking medication, think of each pill as a life saver or a life enhancer instead of a nuisance. Ask yourself, “What does this medication do for me? How is it saving or enhancing my life?” If you don’t know, read the label. If you still aren’t sure, ask your doctor or ask your pharmacist. Once you understand, write the purpose down for future reference on the Know Your Meds Worksheet. Give a copy to anyone involved in your care, and keep a copy with you.
