Medisure: Taking medicines correctly

Medisure is a way of helping you, or someone you know, organise and take medicines at the right time every day

It's important to take the right dose of your prescribed medicines at the right time, to help control your condition as much as possible.

This can sometimes be difficult if you, or someone you know, are taking more than one medicine to help manage a long-term condition. This is where our free Medisure service may help.

How does Medisure work?

Boots Medisure can help make it simpler and easier to take the right medicines at the right time. There are two options available to you, ether Medisure two dose, which is suitable if you take medicines twice each day, or Medisure four dose, if you take medicines three or four times each day. Both packs provide one week's worth of medication.

The pharmacy team can arrange to organise the medicines into separately sectioned blister packets, each marked with the day and time of day when different tablets should be taken.

This not only helps you take all the correct medicines at the right time, but it also may help to identify if any doses have been missed, both for you or for someone who may be helping to look after you.

Who could benefit from Medisure?

The Medisure service could help if, for example, you are:

  • Struggling to organise medications and find it difficult to remember when to take them
  • Helping to look after someone else and are worried that they may not be taking their medicines correctly, or if you simply need more support
  • Responsible for organising someone else's medicines as it will save you time
  • Recently home from hospital after a stay because of either taking too much, or not enough, of your medicines
  • Recently home from hospital and suddenly have a lot more tablets to take. If you live in Wales, you may also be interested in the Discharge Medicines Review Service to help you understand and manage your new medicines
  • Looking after someone who is visually impaired. Being able to feel the blister packs may help them check they haven't missed any tablets
  • Finding it difficult to get tablets out of its current pack. Whether you take two tablets or ten at any one time, they will be held in just one pocket in the blister pack, making it easier to get them out

If you tell your pharmacist about your situation, they will help you decide if Medisure is the best solution for you, or if another course of action might be of more help.

How to sign up to Medisure

f you think that Medisure could help you, talk to your pharmacist. They will talk to you about the medicines being taken and any difficulties being experienced.

If the pharmacist thinks that Medisure could be the right solution, then a start date can be agreed and you can let Boots take the worry out of organising multiple medications for you or someone you are looking after.
