Free Chart for Keeping Track of Medications

Monday Mailbag Q&A

I have been using my Mondays to clear out my mailbag. This week’s request will be of interest to any caregiver or patient who needs to keep track of many different medications:


Hi, Jennifer.

I have used several of your charts because I am a completely unorganized man.

The charts have helped immensely. Thank you sooo much.

How about a medication chart reminding oneself to take their meds on time?



Hi, Gary.

I’ve often watched my husband’s father administer my mother-in-law’s medications. He has always been so good to her. I admire how patient and gentle he is with her, and how carefully he tracks everything. Her health has never been good, so he has a lot to keep up with!

My father-in-law uses a little chart for keeping track of medications, similar to the chart pictured below. He carries it with him to all Mom’s doctor appointments. That way, the physicians can see at a glance what meds she is already taking before prescribing anything new.

Keeping a list of current medications is a smart idea, whether you track your daily doses or not. If you have several prescriptions that need to be taken at different times throughout the day, this free printable will help your keep track of which you take when:

If this is the kind of chart you had in mind for keeping track of your own medications, just click on the image to print. List all your current prescriptions and supplements on the left, along with the times of day you are supposed to take them, then check off the appropriate box once it’s done. A single chart should last the entire month.

Hope that helps you keep it all organized!

For readers with a less complicated medication schedule, it’s hard to beat a Easy-Dose pill dispenser. I take turmeric supplements, probiotics, and a multi-vitamin once a day, and this simple 7-day pill minder helps me stay consistent. I fill it every Sunday morning, then am good to go for the entire week.

Also, if you need help keeping track of bills as well as medicine, you’ll find a pretty chart for doing that right here: Free Bill Payment Checklist

    1. You’re so welcome. I’m glad you found it helpful. Sorry your dog is in such a state as to make keeping track of so many medications necessary! 😢

  1. Hello. I just finished reading your email to your subscribers. I want to tell you that we really find your “Medication Administration Record” form to be invaluable. A family member takes a number of medications and without this form we would be at sea. So thank you very much for including it in your website. We use this form every single day and it never fails us.

  2. I just found your website and it’s so beautiful and helpful…so classic and chic. But I was wondering if you had anything printable for keeping track of medications for pets and like a morning and night kind of template? Thanks so much

    1. I haven’t published anything like that on my blog yet. But I sent what I’ve come up with it to you directly. Will share with other readers later, but didn’t want you to have to wait.

  3. Hello. I found your free printable on Pinterest. This is almost exactly what I have been looking for.
    I was wondering if you have a similar tracker that can be used for when you filled a perscription or when would need to refill medications that are taken on a daily/monthly basis. I would rather be prepared than to run out of a medication when the pharmacy is closed for weekend or holiday..
    Thank you for this record.

    1. Hi, Lori.

      Sorry to be so long in answering your request. I kept thinking maybe I’d get time to design something, but haven’t yet. Maybe some day…

      In the meantime, I’d suggest writing a note on your calendar each time you pick up a prescription on the date it will need to be refilled reminding yourself to do so.

      It is always smart, too, to keep a list of all the medications you are presently taking along with hours and doses. You could make note of “due date for next refill” on that master list, as well. If you write it in pencil, you can change it each time you pick up another round of the medication.
