What Is A Dosette box? How To Get One?

Understanding dosette boxes and how to get one

Missing or doubling up on doses of your medication can have negative side effects on your health. If you take multiple medications throughout the day, making mistakes becomes more likely. That’s why so many people have turned to dosette boxes.

What is a Dosette Box?

Dosette boxes are weekly pill organisers with separate compartments for each day of the week. The dosette boxes available through PTMD are dispensed through automation and arrive at your door as a foldable card with blister packs containing all your needed medicines. On the inside of the card, you will also find a helpful visual guide identifying each pill you take as well as useful information regarding each prescription. The compartment windows are clear enough so you can see which pills you have or haven’t taken. This reduces the risk of you incorrectly taking your medications and potentially harming your health.

The dosette box design makes them easy to see and use so not only are they ideal for older patients, but for anyone who helps with your healthcare.

How to Get a Dosette Box

Pre-filled dosette boxes can be obtained from Pharmacy to My Door with your GP approval.

With PTMD, not only are you getting a more streamlined way to manage your prescriptions, but you don’t have to worry about filling your dosette box yourself. Our dosette boxes come in packaging that has photos and details of each medication. There’s no need to ever worry you’re being sent the wrong medications because the patient’s name and address are printed on each box. A photo of the patient can even be added. Digital barcode tracking adds an extra layer of protection to the auditing process.

Using a dosette box makes taking medications easier than ever. Not only are they ideal for people who struggle with their medication regime, but they are great for residents in care homes or for those who have other people to assist in administering their medications. You will never have to worry again about missing a dose or taking multiple doses.
