A Life-Saving List

Since we have so many medications to keep up with, we carry a card with us on which all the medications and supplements we are currently taking are listed. I jotted down the name of each drug, how many milligrams each tablet contains, how many pills and when we are taking them, what meds we are intolerant to, and even the name and hospital of the doctor who prescribed them.

It already has proven its worth on several occasions. At doctor's visits we simply hand over the list when asked what meds we are on, instead of having to wreck our brains in order to remember all those difficult drug-names. It is also much easier for the physician to determine whether an additional medication combines with the already existing ones, or if it would cause problems.

We also keep a copy of it in our vehicle. Should something happen then it would be a huge help to the paramedics, doctors, and us. You may not instantaneously think of it, but it substantially reduces the time and effort needed finding out what medications you are on and that may just be the amount of time that could save your life.

It may be a good idea all the way around carrying a list with you. That will relieve your mind so you can put it to other, important things!

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

It has already helped me out on more than one occasion and I can only imagine its value in case of an accident or other health related circumstance.

God's Grace.
