How To Use Your Vial-A-Life

Friday, March 18th, 2011

The Vial a Life has two parts.  The top part is the main Vial a Life and should be stored on your refrigerator door.  The bottom part is a wallet-sized Vial a Life that you can carry with you in your wallet, purse or vehicle.

It is best to use pencil to complete both parts of the Vial a Life form (so you can easily make changes to your information as needed).  Once you have completed both parts of the form, tear off the bottom portion, fold it and place it in your wallet, purse or glove box.

Next, remove one of the Vial a Life decals from the pouch and place it outside on your front door or window nearest your front door where it can easily be seen.  Then, fold the top part of the form and place it inside the pouch behind the other decal.  Tape the pouch to your refrigerator door, with the decal facing outward, at eye level so it can easily be seen.

Be sure to amend your medical information as it changes.  You can print new Vial a Life forms whenever you need them by visiting our website at and clicking on the “Print the Vial A Life Packet Link.”

Daily Tip On Your Medications

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Anytime you are taking medication, whether it is prescription or over the counter, you should check to make sure that:

  1. Your medication will not react with another medication you are taking (which could cause an adverse effect)
  2. And that you always only take the dosage as indicated on your medications.
  3. Also, make sure to read about the side effects that your medications can cause and notify your doctor immediately if you believe you are having a reaction to your medication

If you should encounter a situation where you have taken an incorrect dosage and you are experiencing an emergency, remember that we are here with you.  Since you will be already wearing the pendant or wristband that we have provided you, all you’d have to do is press a button and help is on the way.
