Discussion Summary

Sequoias SF explorers compare different approaches they use to managing their medications (pills).

Explorer Anniescott explains how important a medicine cabinet is to older adults, largely due to the number of meds elders typically are taking. The group discusses protection of pills in bottles, especially away from bright sunlight. Explorer Rita explains that she manages her dosages by turning the bottle over when the dose has been taken. Others alternate shelves or use the familiar 7-day trays.

All in all, there is group consensus that the methods and devices currently in use are adequate - until something better is invented that everyone must have.
