There are many people who struggle to remember to take the right medications at the right times. One reason may be a complicated medical regime with different pills taken at different times of the day. Other reasons could be dementia or memory issues. Missed doses of vital medications such as heart, diabetes or blood pressure medications can be detrimental. If you or a loved one struggle to remember what medications to take and when to take them, a dosette box may be for you. If you are looking for a dosette box service, PTMD can help!

What is a Dosette Box?
A dosette box resembles a large, folded card and organizes medications into separate plastic compartments for different times of the day and for each day of the week. Each box contains a weeks’ worth of medication with clearly labeled times and days to help you remember to take your medications correctly.
Why should I use a dosette box?
The primary benefit of using a dosette box is that it helps organize your medication and significantly reduces the risk of you forgetting to take a dose. If you are taking multiple medications with differing occurrences during the day this may be hard to manage. You may need to take one pill three times a day and two pills twice a day, but all at different times. Before meals, with meals, after meals, morning, mid-day, or before bed. If you forget to take medications or take too much at once it can have a negative effect on your health and in many cases, it can be dangerous! A dosette box will minimize that risk for you. There’s no real training needed for how to use a dosette box as it is user-friendly for users, carers, and family alike.
Who should use a dosette box?
Anyone with a complicated medical regime of any age or background. Additionally, a dosette box is extremely helpful for brain-injured individuals, memory deficient, and dementia/Alzheimer’s patients.
