By David Anderson
CUFTOR RECORD CITY EDITOR

Street is announcing a paver brick

ers will be used to construct walk
ways in Heritage Plaza and a

block of North Avenue D.

Head Clock Could
Help With Medications
HOUSTON — Doctors write an
average of 8,000 prescriptions every
year, but many of those drugs fail
to produce the proper result.
“The most common problem is
that people don’t follow instructions
on properly taking medications,”
said Dr. Ed Fann, professor of phar-
macology at Baylor College of
Medicine in Houston. “Forgetting
to take medication or stopping the
regimen too soon can limit a drug’s

In an effort to increase medica-
tion compliance, Fann and col-
leagues are studying our internal
memory or the so-called head
clock, a unique device that virtually
anyone can use to help them re-
member to take a pill. The head
clock is part of an internal mecha-
nism that alerts us to perform a
“We all have a sense of time and
its passing and can remind our-
selves to do something at a certain
time,” said Fann. “This is the job of
the head clock. By paying attention
to a twinge or feeling of anxiety pro-
duced by this innate mechanism,
we can do a better job of remem-
The key is being aware of the feel-
ing. If you sense some anxiety, it
could be your memory telling you
that you are forgetting something.
Fann said when this feeling occurs,
you should go though a mental
checklist of the tasks you have set
for yourself in order to remember
a specific task.
Baylor researchers are testing
the theory on a group of medical
students. Half of the group will be
taught about the head clock and the
techniques of using it. Half will not.
The investigators will track how
well students in each group do in
remembering to take a harmless
“Using medications other than
exactly how they are prescribed
can be dangerous,” said Fann.
“Teaching patients to be more in
tune with their internal head clock
has the potential for increasing pa-
tient compliance, improving health,
and reducing costs associated with
