Remembering to take your medications

Do you have trouble remembering to take your medications? I'm one of those people who has a very difficult time remembering - even just one pill a day.

I'm very routine oriented, so if I set up a routine, it works well for a while. But, then for some reason, it stops working. I've tried calendars, reminders on the computer, leaving the pills by my toothbrush - you name it I've tried it. I just constantly fall into not remembering.

I remember someone once saying to me that obviously the pills weren't important enough to me to remember. That was incredibly harsh and untrue. I know how important my medications are and I try hard to remember, I just end up forgetting.

So - what are your tricks for remembering to take your medications?

I am all over the map when it comes totaking my meds on time,so I finally bought one of those seven day a week pill cases, so that at least I can look at it and know definitively if I took my pills or not!
