good. the worst thing is when you can't remember if you've taken it.

Agreed turnip - have I, haven't I, did I didn't I? Horrible.
I print out a monthly table of dates, times & meds. When I take the med (or am reminded to do so) , I make sure that I tick the approprite box (or carer does) It has become second nature. It does not mean that never I forget to take them or remember whether I have, but it is there in black & white.

The usual advice is to omit the forgotten dose and then carry on as usual from the next dose. Check with your PD nurse or GP if you are unsure.

I once absentmindedly took a second tablet of Sinemet plus straight after the first. In my befuddled early morning state with a pounding headache I had mistaken sinemet for paracetamol both white on one side. I certainly won't do that again - felt I was going to explode After dx. when I first took a sinemet tablet I was sicker than I have ever experienced in my life. Since then I've read that you need to be up to a regime of at least three a day to have enough of the anti-sickness component of the tablet in your system which I did work out for my self. So why don't they give you something for the sickness whilst you are titrating up.?
