he takes alot of medication that interact with each other making him sicker..
You can also call your health insurance company to see if you have a case manager assigned to your husbands case. If he does not have one, ask if it is a service offered. Many health insurance companies offer case management services. Case managers are usually nurses or social workers who are specially trained to give advice over the phone and also to help you with community resources. It is a very valuable service.
Suszanne is right, along with that on the internet there is a sit www.epill.com it allows you to print this off it has an area where you can put the name of the medication the strength of it and it gives multiple times starting at 6 a.m. and runs through the entire day and night around the clock, times every 30 minutes so you could write what he takes the strength and once he takes the dose then you check it off, then you can keep track of what has been given. also on this site they offer (kind of costly) devices that lock medicines up, the times can be set up to 14-20 times and it will alarm to remind you of when medication is due, also you could purchase a large pill container, it holds4-6 doses per day morning, noon, supper, bedtime. then they have other that can be bought individually and set up to work the way that works best for you buy them at a hospital supply place or your local pharmacy.
but asking your pharmacist is probably one of the best because he dispenses his medications and therefore has a better idea of what would work best for him, Please feel free to contact me or anyone here if we can be of help in answering questions we will give it our best.
If you can't get a pharmacist or doctor to help you please feel free to post the meds and I will look them up for you on the interactions checker etc. You can post these in private, if you prefer, by clicking on my name or icon and clicking on private message and sending me a message.
I would be very happy to help,
