i recently got a roadID bracelet in case something happens to me while on my walks, driving, etc.

RoadID offers an "interactive" service where emergency response teams can log in or call a number and get all of your medical info. i figured this is a great way to let them know that our CNS is sensitive and we shouldn't be given certain meds & antibiotics, should have twilight anesthesia if needed, etc.

 

here is the link:

and here is info on the interactive service:

i got the slim band which looks like the popular rubber bands people wear these days. in the several months I've been wearing it, only 1 person tried to read it so its pretty inconspicuous and doesn't holler "i have medical issues!" but i'm pretty sure people will know to look for it in an emergency.  i haven't compared products but just thought i would mention this in case anyone is interested.

on 37.5 - 50mg zoloft/sertraline for GAD from 3/1996 to 4/2013 (17 years)

Great idea. There are other services for this, too.

This is not medical advice. Discuss any decisions about your medical care with a knowledgeable medical practitioner.
