Come on pharmacists, help us out here. How are we suppose to remain independent if you keep changing our tablets – it simply confuses and I keep thinking I’ve put the wrong tablets in my dossett box…..
I get the same prescription every month, which the pharmacy has made very easy as I no longer have to order from the surgery – I just pop in when I need it. So that bit you made very useful for me.
However, each the month the boxes and the contents can look very different😳
This is not so helpful and makes it very confusing, especially if the dossett box contains an overlap of one month to the next.
I realise it’s could be the manufacturers at fault as well, but if only every Donezepil could look the same and come in the same box it would make life so much easier
If I’m having a bad day and look at the tablets, I get very confused and think I’ve put the wrong tablets in the box.This is even more confusing if they actually look the same as the other medication I take. Some have the dosage written on, which helps sometimes, sometimes they’re totally blank, which doesn’t help.
Can they not be standardised? Or maybe just pur them in plain boxes for those who have difficulty?
Doesn’t seem much to ask………….😔
