Pill Bottles and Counting

My in-laws have RA and I am trying to help them out. They have a lot of pills to put into weekly pill dispensers. They have a difficult time putting their pills in because many of the pills are too small for them to handle. Does anyone have any ideas or tips on how to more easily fill the pill boxes? Or any experience with automatic, non sorted dispensers? Thank you.


  1. Matthew,

    Thanks so much for reaching out to us! You are a wonderful son-in-law to help your inlaws and we are glad to have you here! While I hope the community chimes in for support on this, we suggest talking with your in laws Dr about any tips and tricks for taking smaller medications. Additionally, it may be something we could ask our writers to write on, so we are glad you brought this to our attention.
    Lastly, if you haven't visited our facebook page, you may want to post there for some additional support.

    Best of luck to you and your inlaws and reach out anytime!
