What can I do to help my mother who is obsessed with taking medicine?
My mother has an obsession with her medication. It is all she thinks about. She watches the clock for her next dose and thinks about nothing else. None of her medication is addictive or habit forming, just cholesterol, hypertension meds etc. She is always trying to get a medication added to her list(laxatives, tylenol, immodium, sleeping meds etc.) It is her only topic of coversation. Any one else with this issue and what did you do? I have given her a pill container with her daily meds in it to give her a little control over her meds but cannot give them all to her or she would take them all at one time.
