How to Create a Pill Card
Many people have trouble keeping track of their medicines and one in four do not take prescription medicines as prescribed. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has lauched this webpage to help users create an easy-to-use “pill card” for patients, parents, or anyone who has a hard time keeping track of their medicines.
A pill card is a simple, visual way to show all of the medicines that a person needs to take on a regular basis. The pill card uses pictures and simple phrases to show each medicine, its purpose, how much to take, and when to take it. It is easier to understand than the complicated information and instructions that typically come with medicines.
