    Default Bubble pack medications

    If you use medication that comes in a bubble pack regularly, then you know how difficult it is to "pop" the meds from the pack when your head is pounding to beat the band.
    I took an empty medicine bottle, cut off the front of the commercial medication box to fit on the bottle, taped it to the bottle. Now when I buy bubble pack meds, I remove them from the bubble packs and put the pills in the bottle. I don't like to take meds, so, I tend to wait until the pain is blinding before I take them. I take "Aleve_D, Sinus & Headache" when it's needed.

    Don't feel bad, I have to cut the foil and paper with a knife to get those open. I have one antihistamine that requires a shaped charge to get it open.
    Common sense is so uncommon nowadays it ought to be reclassified as a super power

    I use a pair of scissors to cut along the bubble line and peel back the foil on several at a time. I gave up on those "corner peel backs".

    "This medication is for decreased fine motor control of the hands and loss of close vision acuity". Please read the four pages of microscopically printed chinese/english warnings and instructions and then perform the 7 steps required to open the quadruple layered kevlar cobalt containment packaging.
