Are There Easier Ways to Get My Medications?

Do you have better things to do than worry about your medications?

Most people do not know there are other options of packing medications besides the traditional pill bottle. Here are a few other options you might want to consider to make taking medications easier.

Dispill. This a disposable med planner which is color coded by time of day. It’s detachable and portable with perforated edges you can easily tear and take your medications on the go. It’s clean, convenient, and best of all filled by your pharmacist. You no longer have to worry about mixing up your medications.

Strip Packaging. These are securely sealed, clearly labeled individual plastic packets organized by date and time. So when it’s time to take your next dose you just tear the package off the roll and your pills are there. That’s all there is to it.

Electronic Planners. These are tamper resistant planners which sound an alarm and flashing light when it is time to take medication. Alarm will sound for 30 minutes or until the meds are dispensed.

Pharmacies who offer these options often set up your medications to be filled on the same day, schedule your refills, and deliver them to your doorstep. Worry less and discover a newer more efficient way of packaging your medications.
