Question about a portable medication box with timer.

Question: "I need a portable pill box small enough to fit in my briefcase. This would be one with a timer to alert me when I need to take my medications. The pills I take are fairly large. What do you suggest? Thanks. Jim."

Answer: The Med-Q Pill Boxes would be our recommendation. The Blue Med-Q is a digital pill box with a double beep alarm and a flashing LED light The White Med-Q is similar except that the alarm sounds only a single beep.

For those who need to take medications 4 times a day, we suggest you purchase one of each using one color for days and one for nights.

These units share many common features. Each is 9 inches by 4.5 inches by about 1.0 inch.

Both the blue and the white Med Q battery powered, portable pill box have 14 compartment, each compartment is 1 inch high by 3/4 inch wide by 1 inch long. The weight empty is 3 ounces. Then add the two AA batteries for power.  Easily carried in briefcase or larger handbag. NOTE: White and blue are identical except white beeps once and blue, twice. Use one of each if you need 4 doses per day or two people need a pill box alarm.

I hope this helps you to take your medications on time.

Question about the Medready Basic Pill Box with Alarm Model 1700.

Q: "My mom is nearly blind. What pill boxes do you sell that would help her take her medications at the right times? We can set up her pills for her. Thanks." Margaret

Answer: At this time, these three are the best ones available.

The Medready has a loud low frequency alarm. She would only have access to the medications during the time that particular pill container was available to her. The Medready audible alarm settings: 1- 4 per day.  Alarm signal: alternates 5 seconds on, 1 second off . Stops when medication door is opened. Set alarm time interval for 3, 30, 45, 60 or 250 minutes. Alarm will continue to beep for that time interval until the medication door is opened or the alarm time is reached. Alarm intensity: 85 decibel alarm at 10 cm, 400Hz (low frequency alarm)similar to microwave alarm.

Thank you for your question.
