‘Pill Suite’ ~ A Solution To The Problem Of Tracking & Traveling With Your Meds

  • Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

I admit it.  I am one of those people who will abandon function for form.  I can be illogical at times when the ‘best way’, or ‘the most convenient way‘ does not match the ‘what looks good way‘.  I am a sucker for aesthetics, much to the consternation and frustration of my husband who has been heard sighing loudly at his wife’s sacrifice of sensibility for style.

This tendency of mine has even been known to cross over into something as basic as my pill holder.  I wanted the cute little pink one with the days of the week stamped on the lids in a beautiful cursive font.  Never mind that the actual container part where the meds are stored could fit no more than a couple of dainty pea sized pills.  I chose to forfeit a few of the more ‘bulky’ vitamins simply for the sake of getting the lid to shut on my adorable, albeit futile, pill holder.

Of course, that worthless pink gadget now sits unused and abandoned at the back of the medicine cabinet.  This was one of the things that caught my eye while watching the video for the Pill Suite.  I love the idea of neat little packets clearly labeled, and perhaps decorated with a hand drawn flower or two, that can hold many pills all at once without having to lug around a large bulky pill container.

Okay.  Enough of my strange little proclivities.  Let’s really take a look at the product.  I can see some real advantages to this system.  Especially if you, or someone care for, takes multiple medications at different times during the day.

The sealed packets can be clearly labeled (a bonus for older patients), and easily opened.  They also fit conveniently into a briefcase, pocket, or purse.  This would be of great benefit when I go on vacation next fall.  It will be harder to forget taking my meds in the midst of all the activity if they are right there in my line of sight when I open my purse.

So, what came in the box ?

I was actually pretty impressed with what you get.  It came with a yellow ‘sorter‘ (that easily fills the packets), a green ‘sealer’ (along with 4 “AA” batteries), and 400 bio-degradable ‘suites’ (or pill packets). For $39.95 plus FREE shipping, I would say this is a good deal.

Pill Suite can be purchased here.

I have a sister who battles lung cancer.  With the meds she takes on a daily basis, and the fact that she works away from home often, I may be giving her one of these as a gift soon.  She is also an ‘organization freak‘, so she’ll dig the ‘method’ of it.

    What a nifty little gadget! This would be great for road trips or out for the day, and affordable. I learned about another pill sorting/dispensing product a couple of weeks ago. It’s called the Hero. It holds up to one month’s worth of pills, dispenses, sorts, and tracks the doses. It does so much! I can’t wait to get one. Here’s the article I did about it, so you can watch the one minute video – http://www.beingfibromom.com/one-simple-way-tom-make-pill-taking-easier/

    I take numerous pills per day. I love the idea of the dispenser and packets. I am at that stage in life where I can’t remember if I took a pill. My question has to do with travel. I went to London last year and took about 12 bottles of meds with me. Kind of bulky. I have heard that if you don’t have the bottles with you to prove you have been legally prescribed the pills it could cause a problem. Any thoughts on this?

      That’s a good question Kay. I’m afraid I don’t know the answer, but if you call the airlines I’m sure they can guide you in the right direction. Good luck! 😉
