Managing one’s health is not an easy task. As a Family Medicine doctor, I must be the captain steering the ship that is personal health and wellness. Part of my job is arming my patients with the tools that can make this a lot simpler.
One of my favorite tools is for people to have a pill container, especially if you are taking more than 2 medications at different times of the day. I will list some of most popular best pill organizer in 2019 so you can decide which one is right for you.
7 Best Pill Organizer in the market
[amazon bestseller=”Pill Organizer” items=”7″]
What Should you be Looking for in a Pill Organizer?
Here are 5 things you need to consider before purchasing one
- Types of medications: Do your medications need to be taken in the morning or night? Do you have medications that are not in pill form (nasal sprays, liquids, or creams)? Do you have to take it every day?
- Form of medication: Do you need your pills crushed to be taken with food? Or can you swallow them whole?
- Activity level: Are you mobile or do you stay at home? Do you have a job that requires you to be away from home for long periods at time?
- Eye sight: Do you have difficulty with your vision requiring bigger letters on the pill organizer?
- Price: Are you trying to spend frugally or does not price not matter?
