Staying positive, motivated and on track with your treatment.

• Take each dose at the same time every day so that it becomes a habit.

• Link taking your medicine to something you normally do (e.g. if you always have a morning coffee, keep your tablets next to the kettle).

• Put reminder notes where you’ll see them every day, such as on the fridge door or bathroom mirror.

• Ask a family member or close friend to help remind you to take your medicine.

• Plan ahead if you know you may be out at the time you would normally take a dose (and take your medicine with you).

• If you will be travelling or away from home, check that you have enough medicine to last you while you’re away. Plan to pick up a repeat script from your pharmacy if you need to, and don’t forget to pack your treatment.

• If your routine is disrupted, such as by travelling, it can be easy to forget to take your medicine. Attach a reminder note to your toiletries kit or another item you’ll use every day. Set a daily alert in your phone.

• Think of every tablet as taking control of your wellbeing, by giving your health a chance to improve without the Hep C virus.

• Set goals for the activities you may be able to enjoy once your treatment is complete and the virus is cleared.

• Remind yourself of all the people who are wishing you well.

• Reward yourself for each treatment milestone (e.g. catch up with friends when you complete your first 4 weeks of treatment).
