Some people take no medications at all. Others take quite a few.
It’s important that you are only taking medications that help you, and that you aren’t taking any that interact with each other.
You can talk to a pharmacist about your medications. They can check why you’re taking them and the best time of day to take them. They can work with you and your doctor to make sure you have only the ones you need.
You can talk to an occupational therapist, or your pharmacist, about a system to make sure you take the right medications at the right time.
The National Dementia Helpline is an Australian Government funded initiative.
