medical alert bracelet
amack00 posted:
My doctor suggested that I get a medical alert bracelet due to the Depakote that I am taking. She said it is an anti-seizure med and that it would be a good idea to have the bracelet in cases of emergencies. Have any of you been told to to get one?

annmariew657 responded:

the only thing with listing depakote is in an emergency they may think you are epileptic, i would add bipolar to the list

Sandtiger responded:
Actually, I've been told you should wear one, taking any type of BP meds. I'm on Lamictal, and it's recommended. I actually have one my MIL gave me for Christmas.

There are some you can get that don't really look like med bracelets, though. Check out:

I think it's a good idea, because most bp meds shouldn't be mixed with other meds or stopped abruptly and in the event of an emergency you'd want your health care providers to have this info for your best interest.
Northernpolar responded:
I never was suggested to get one, but now that my medications are unchanged for Months, I going to buy one this week.
KellyHunt responded:
A med ID bracelet should be worn for anyone taking Depakote, for any reason. There are a plethora of drug interactions that can cause toxicity and thinning of the blood. Just one of them is aspirin.
margaroo replied to KellyHunt's response:
I have had a medic alert bracelet for years. They have a lot of difference styles, my is a very pretty blue crystal. You have a choice of listing your meds and/or conditions. Any ER will call medic alert when you are admitted. You can call and speak to a rep.You will be surprised.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
sandtiger responded:
Speaking of med bracelets, I need to get a new one... of my medications, which ones should I make SURE to list on it? (only like one or two can be put down)
