I gather, from reading another post, that not everyone uses a pill dispenser. I find mine invaluable. There are lots of different ones on the market, but I find most of them too small.
I load my 'arsenal' once a week, in my case on Sunday, carefully checking off the pills. There is a second divider, but I removed that since I don't take pills at lunchtime, except for painkillers if I need them. Once a month or so, I put all the compartments in the washing machine. As the units are all separate, if I'm going away for a night, I can just take one.
They do make them with reminder alarms, but so far, the bright red case has never failed to attract my attention at the right time.
I'm sure that most of you have your dispensing all organised. I just thought this might be helpful to newcomers, as I remember how overwhelmed I initially was by so many bottles and packets.
