Knowing when, how, and why you take medication plays a big part in medication safety. The
Alberta Health Services Medication List can help you and your family keep track of everything you take to keep you healthy – your pills, vitamins, and herbs. When you go see the doctor, your pharmacist, have a medical appointment or test, or have to go to the hospital or emergency room, take this medication list with you. There is also a
wallet size version of the list that makes this easy to do.

Now you can download the
MyMedRec app to your mobile device. The app lets you keep track of the medicine that you or your family take, lets you create profiles for other people, reminds you when to take a medicine or when a refill is due, and lets you email up-to-date health information to your doctor or family.
The MyMedRec app is maintained by a third party. MyHealth.Alberta.ca doesn’t endorse and is not responsible for the content or accuracy of this app.
You may choose to use this
Daily Medicine Schedule form to remind you when to take your medicines. Post this sheet where you can see it, such as near your medication cabinet, where you store your medicines or on your refrigerator.
When your doctor recommends a new medication for your health condition, it is a good idea to ask your doctor the questions included in this document:
