Medication Tracker (PDF)
Some people feel more comfortable bringing a copy of their original prescriptions in case they lose their medication. That’s fine, but it’s sufficient to have a list of your medications and your cardiologist’s phone number. Download this medication chart to help keep track. It’s also a good idea to let your cardiologist or internist know where you’ll be. Your doctor might know physicians or reputable heart institutes in the area if help is needed.
