Medical ID

Ok, I need input. I have never worn a medical alert bracelet or necklace but when starting a new medicine that said I needed to wear one, I got to thinking that I should find out what is available. I should be wearing one anyway.

This is what I have found so far:

  • There are those that have a maintenance fee which you keep updated data at, but these are expensive, or at least the ones I checked.
  • Then there are those that you can have information engraved with no backup—no maintenance fee, but one’s information needs to be current. I could use a phone number but that could change—not very permanent. These are more expensive because the companies are looking to get their money at one time.
  • Then, I could get a bracelet or necklace and have it engraved. This can be a bit cheaper but it too would have to be kept current.
  • There are those that have a jump drive in the bracelet. I don’t think I want to really go that route and I don’t know any of the particulars about them.

Please let me know if you have any input about medical ID bracelets and necklaces. I really have no idea. I’m not sure that I will put this new medicine on there since I don’t know if I will keep taking it but I need to have info about my AVM and Dilantin/Phenytoin. The new medicine is to stop my face pain but I had the worst pain during the night last night–not very promising.

Happy Gardening!
