Fantastic Stocking Stuffer Idea: Rx Timer Cap + Giveaway...

"Roughly 50% of patients don’t take their medications as directed, which leads to more than 125,000 deaths every year in the United States. It also costs close to $300 billion in increased healthcare costs. A significant factor in patients not taking their meds properly is simple - - forgetfulness. However, patients that use the Timer Cap containers show a 34% improvement in adherence.   

The cap works like a stopwatch. Every time a patient opens and closes the cap to take their medication, the timer automatically resets itself and then begins counting up the hours and minutes since medication was last taken.


 

The cap is especially helpful for those who are monitoring meds for kids, pets or parents who are on several prescriptions. As anyone who has been the caretaker of elderly parents knows, keeping track of mom or dad’s medications can be difficult. With the Timer Cap, you can easily see when the last time you gave them their meds.

The cap is available at various pharmacies throughout the country (and is being introduced to more on an ongoing basis). Some pharmacies give them away for free for customers enrolled in their auto-refill program - - some offer a free cap for first-time customers and some charge for the cap. It depends on the pharmacy. However, the caps can be purchased via the website (varying prices depending on quantities purchased).

What we thought:  I have allergies and chronic headaches so I take a variety of medicines on a daily basis.  These Rx Timer Caps were amazing!  I can't tell you how many times I would forget the last time I took such and such and wondered if I could take more safely.  This nifty gadget solves that problem immediately and effortlessly.  Most of my medications are OTC, but I just put them in the Rx Timer bottles and it works perfectly.  The caps come in a variety of sizes and using them couldn;t be easier.  These caps would make great stocking stuffers for those in your life who take several medications on a daily schedule.  ABCD Diaries gives Rx Timer Caps an A+ if our rating scale went any higher I'd give them more:)  This is honestly a life-saving product!
