5 Reasons You Should Use MyMedication Journal®

 

1. Designed by a Registered Pharmacist

My Medication Journal® was written by a Registered Pharmacist practicing currently in the community helping patients like yourself get the most out of their medications everyday while staying safe and healthy! For an average appointment with a primary care physician a patient spends roughly 50 minutes at the doctor’s office but only 10 minutes actually with their doctor.

2. Speak Your Doctor’s Language

In an article in The New York Times, Dr. Peter Salgo, an anesthesiologist at Columbia State University argues that to increase profit, publicly traded H.M.O.’s, began restricting doctors to an average seven-minute “encounter” with each patient. My Medication Journal® acts as the tool you need to speak your doctors’ language and maximize the actual face to face time you have with your doctor.

3. Get Organized

My Medication Journal® contains everything you need to document your medication history including pharmacist tips to help guide you. The easy to use design is intended for you to just fill in the blanks and go. Many patients are wary about keeping medication information on mobile and other electronic devices, MyMedication Journal® is a private solution to this problem

4. Protect your Good Health and Maximize Quality of Life.

Adverse drug reaction is the 4th leading cause of death. In the United States, an estimated 3 million older adults are admitted to nursing homes due to drug-related problems. Patients who keep a medication list that is shared with their physician are less likely to be hospitalized for medication related events.

5. Strengthen your Support System.

Sharing your health status with your loved ones is a powerful tool in strengthening and protecting your health. MyMedication Journal® not only improves your knowledge about your health, it can give your loved ones access to important information they may need to know about your health and be more valuable advocates at doctors appointments, hospital stays, or other healthcare encounters.

How do I dispose of unwanted/unneeded medications?

- Talk to your pharmacy about where you can dispose of unwanted/unneeded medications. Many have programs that you can use for this purpose.

- Talk to local waste management services and ask about where you go to dispose of old medications. If you do not have access to a community disposal service and must dispose of the old medications yourself you can take them out of their original containers and mix them with an undesirable substance, such as used coffee grounds or kitty litter.

- Do not dump old medications down the toilet unless specifically instructed to do so on labels.

Why You Need My Medication Journal

Can’t I just keep notes?

Patients who keep a medication journal keep more accurate and detailed medication records.


A medication list of drugs keeps difficult to remember generic and brand drug names there when you need them.

Webmd, rx.com and other symptom checker/medication research tools work best when used in conjunction with a medication list.

Great for keeping a diabetes medication list, high blood pressure medication list or a list of any medicine that a loved one is taking.
