They say you should write what you know, and as I’ve been writing precious little while mired in the ongoing medical saga that has become my kid’s life these days, I’m heeding that particular call. If you don’t need a cool pill organizer, feel free to skip this post.
If you do need a cool pill organizer, pull up a chair! I have desperately been trying to keep medication organized ’round here, lately, and after several “Oh I’ll just buy these cheap cases off of eBay” disasters, bit the bullet and read some reviews, then bought this Ezy Dose 7 Day AM/PM Travel Pill Container.
* The lids are easy to open, but don’t pop open (unlike every other pill case I’ve purchased, which opens when dropped on the floor, or packed in a suitcase, or looked at sideways). (Related: the only thing more fun than spending half an hour every weekend loading up a pill case is later spending half an hour scrambling around on the floor to find said pills while also trying to keep the dog from eating them.)
* AM and PM are different colors, which you wouldn’t think was a big deal, until you had a not-terribly-observant kid taking a bazillion meds, that is.
* This is now the smallest case we own, but the pill compartments themselves are the largest. Uh, it’s not rocket science, it’s a pill container. I’m confused as to why this was hard for the cheapo manufacturers to figure out.
* And my favorite feature ever: Although it’s a week-long case, each individual day’s AM/PM pair can be popped out of the base. Going on an overnight, or a weekend trip? Pop out the days you need, instead of taking the whole big case, or putting pills in a baggie. Genius.
Bottom line: I sincerely hope you have absolutely no need of a high-tech pill organizer. But if you do, this one is well worth the $7 price tag.
