Since I was diagnosed as diabetic around a year ago I have been on multiple daily medications. I am good at remembering to take all of my tablets when I am at home but found myself getting caught out when I was out and about and would end up eating away from home as I need to take a pill with my evening meal. I needed an organiser to help me out but which would also allow me to take my pills out with me, step in the detach and go pill box which I got for around £4 from my local pharmacy.
I organise my medicines at the beginning of each week, instead of having the massive pharmacy bags with their many boxes inside to rummage around in on a daily basis, I have all my pills in one place on the kitchen counter. I take a total of three different prescribed tablets as well as a multivitamin and evening primrose oil capsule making a total of seven pills a day. It is easy to open and close the individual boxes and they have plenty of room for my tablets and would hold a few more and the seal of the lid is nice and tight so I don't have to worry about the boxes opening again, I should note that the lids are not childproof so the organiser should be kept out of reach of children once it is full.
There are many different types of pill organisers out there but this one seems fairly unique in that you can detach the boxes to put them in a bag and take them out with you. Each day has two boxes for am and pm which are back to back. Each days pills can be detached by sliding the individual boxes apart, you can take as many boxes as you want from the organiser. The remaining days will slot together in any order. It is far easier for me to remember to slide a days worth of tablets into my bag if there is a chance I will be eating dinner away from home than it would be to take away several different strips of tablets. The pill boxes have never opened by accident in my bag.
The detach-and-go pill box is a handy little invention which makes organising your medication that little bit easier and is convenient for people who need to take pills on a daily basis to use when on the go.
I have unfortunately had to take lots and lots of tablets since I was very young. Since having my own children remembering to take them has become increasingly difficult.
Considering the difference for me between taking them and not taking them is life and death you would think I would remember but when you have a hundred nappies surrounding you and a baby crying all day it sometimes slips your mind.
Lucky for me have a very caring mum and partner and therefore they always do their best to remind me but sometimes even they forget.
When I came accross this new detach n' go pill box in my local chemist i was on my last straw so thought I might aswell try it and for a measly £3.99 I thought I couldnt go wrong.
I was most impressed with this pill box mainly because it is very small and compact and can fit into many bags and looks neat on my side but on close inspection i saw it was better than even first thought. You see not only is it really easy to fill you can detach the pill boxes according to the days. For example if I was going out on a Wednesday and wasn't going to be home by the time I needed to take my tablets I can detach the Wednesday compartment and pop it into my bag. Each day also has two compartments. Am and PM making it extrememly easy.
The box is made out of plastic and is very lightweight. It starts from Sunday and goes through to the next Saturday.
I really have to be honest and say I have never forgotten a tablet since having this box. I fill it up every Saturday night ready for the start of the next 'tablet week'. It makes me feel really confident that I wont be able to forget them.
The only disadvantage of this is I always have mum and partner checking up on me. Every night when partner comes in he makes sure I have taken all tablets and I always get told off if I have forgotten.
I have never seen these before so presume they are new out but I found this in my local chemist and presume they can be brought in other chemists or other places like boots.
I can't tell you how easy this is to use. It really is an asset in my life and I dont know where I would be now without it. I take it everwhere (not the whole thing as it seperates) and I never have to worry about taking out a whole packet of tablets.
If you have to take regular tablets I really suggest getting one of these because they are a really great design and fantastic value.
