(HealthDay News) -- When you're caring for someone with cancer, managing many medications can feel like a juggling act.
The American Cancer Society suggests how to stay organized:
Maintain a current list of your loved one's medications, including the drug name and dose, schedule for taking each med, prescribing doctor and the reason each drug is prescribed.
Keep this information in one place, such as in a notebook or small box.
Organize medication information electronically, and make sure it's secure and backed up.
Learn about your loved one's illness, treatment plan and what each medication is for.
Take the medication info to doctor appointments, and take notes while you're there.
