I'm doing well and take it most days, only because I keep them next to my baby aspirin and heartburn meds, and I HAVE to take those lol

I keep mine above my sink, so I see them first thing every morning. I also keep my probiotics, liquid chlorophyll and RRL tea there too so I remember those as well.

I suck at it! I was doing really well until I was told I'm supposed to take it at a different time than my thyroid meds and I have a hard time remembered to take pills twice a day!

No, I'm really bad at remembering. I often take two of my kids gummy vitamins when they ask for them.

I take them every morning. I dont think I missed a day. Im used to the routine.. Birth Control from like 14-21 and multivitamins.. I even switch it up.. if Im feeling extra bloated or constipated I will take the prenatal gummies to avoid the iron.. but otherwise I take my prescription one.

I don't know if this helps you, but it's what I do. I take my thyroid medicine first thing when my feet hit the floor in the morning. That way I can get ready for the day and eat breakfast about an hour later. Then I take my prenatal, iron, and extra folic acid at night right before bed. It's a pain, though!

That's basically what I do. I also take another medication twice a day that is best with food, so I try to do right after breakfast and right after dinner. But after dinner I'm working on bedtimes, etc... and it's easy to forget! I need to set a phone reminder or something LOL

I went through a stage about a month ago of forgetting to take them most days but I'm back taking them every morning now

I'm good although I'm sure I've missed a day or 2 and I'm pretty sure on some days I accidentally doubled up

I have to take mine with food or else I get sick so I'm usually good with taking them right after breakfast.

My vitamin is twice a day and I also take iron and a fish oil pill. I have been pretty good about remembering plus my hubby reminds me.

I'm slacking. I remember them the night before when I'm in bed and then forget them in the mornings when I'm rushing to leave for work.
