How do I get a Medic Alert type bracelet?


Recommended Posts

I went online to order a medic alert bracelet because the way I am feeling right now, I'm afraid I won't be able to communicate if I'm in trouble and am taken to a hospital.  You have to register your "condition" with them and the only thing they have under "benzodiazepine" is "benzo dependent"...you can't put in anything else.

 

Has anyone gotten something that indicates they do not want to be administered benzos, Z drugs, quinolones?  If so, would a medical professional recognize it?  I know someone said they made a card for their wallet but is that effective?

Hi Mar!

 

I tell each medical establishment I go to that I have severe allergies to them that are life threatening.  I don't know it an EMT would actually check your wallet for a card, I think maybe a card plus a bracelet or necklace would be your best bet.  I would write down you are allergic to them.

 

As for the 'condition' on the Med Alert form, do they have an option where you can write in, say 'Severe Allergies,' if none of their predesignated conditions apply?

 

I ordered a bracelet that came with a blank sticker to paste inside.  That way I could write whatever I wanted.  I have seen them for sale at Walgreens as well in the Pharmacy Department.
