Medication Tracker Checklist

Medically Reviewed by Jabeen Begum, MD on November 12, 2021

When you start taking medications, having to track what you need to take, how much, and how often can be intimidating. You’ll benefit from acting intentionally when keeping track of your medications. If you take more than one medication, it’s even more important to get organized and start tracking your medications.

This medication tracker checklist is a great way to establish a routine with your medication:

  • Make a detailed list of your medications, noting the doctors who prescribed each medication, the correct dosage, possible side effects, and more.
  • Establish a routine with your medication by combining daily activities with taking medications.
  • Get a pillbox that lets you divide medicines by day and time of day if needed. 
  • Create a calendar, chart, or phone alert to stay on schedule and keep track of your medications.
  • Get all of your prescriptions filled at the same pharmacy and at the same time, if possible.
  • Continue taking your medicine, even if you feel better or like nothing has changed. Always finish all of the prescribed medication.
