Most people have phones with cameras now-a-days. To help remember your medications in an Emergency situation, or even simply when you go to your physicians office, take a close-up picture of the prescription bottle! Try to get the medication name, strength, dosage, and prescribing physician in the picture. In addition, it is helpful to know the pharmacy name, pharmacy telephone number and your prescription number. You can also take pictures of your vitamins, supplements and any over-the counter medications that you take.

Many Smart phones allow you to create files, similar to a computer, where you can create a file called “My Prescriptions” and file each picture of your medication into that file.
