Finding a Pharmacy
Some arthritis treatments may only be available through a specialty pharmacy. Specialty pharmacies are different than your neighborhood pharmacy in that they offer extra support for patients taking medications for chronic conditions.
Often, they will arrange to have your medication delivered right to your front door. Work with your insurance provider to find a pharmacy that works for you.

First, you can set reminders on your mobile phone. You can also combine taking your medication with a task, like brushing your teeth.
