Nearly 1 in 5 Americans take 5 or more prescriptions each day. However, fewer than half actually take their medications as prescribed. It can be difficult for both patients and caregivers to keep track of multiple different medications that need to be taken at different times of the day. That’s why we offer compliance packaging to make taking medications easier. Here are four things you should know about our Phipps Pack compliance packaging to help you find out if it’s right for you.

1. What Is Compliance Packaging?

Compliance medication packaging, sometimes called adherence packaging or customized medication packaging, organizes a patient’s medications into convenient, single-use packages. When you utilize compliance packaging, your medications will be divided into packages based on the day and time they need to be taken. For example, if you take two pills in the morning and three at night, the two morning pills will be packaged together in a morning pouch and the three night pills will be packaged together in an evening pouch. This ensures the correct medications are taken at the correct times.

2. Who Needs Compliance Packaging?

Compliance packaging is a great solution for individuals who struggle to keep track of their medication regimens. If you have been prescribed multiple different medications or find it hard to remember to take doses when scheduled, you can benefit from our compliance packaging. This is also a great way to reduce the number of trips to the pharmacy for anyone with a busy schedule or difficulty finding transportation, as all your medications for the month will be packaged in one box. Additionally, compliance packaging is ideal for caregivers or facilities who have to manage medications for patients because it takes away the guesswork of a potentially overwhelming task.

3. What Are the Benefits of Compliance Packaging?

Because all medications are arranged by dose and time of day, you will no longer need to worry about whether you are taking the right pills at the right dosage at the right time. Compliance packaging takes the stress out of keeping up with a medication schedule and makes it easy to see if you’ve taken a dose, significantly reducing the risk of missing or doubling doses. Because all your medications for the month are packaged together at the same time, you also won’t need to make your way to and from the pharmacy multiple times throughout the month to refill various prescriptions. Everything is conveniently packaged together in a simple-to-use system to take the stress out of managing medications.

4. How Do I Use Compliance Packaging?

Compliance packaging is the easiest way to take medications. Your medications will be packaged together by date and time in single-use pouches. These pouches are connected along a strip dispensed from an easy-to-store box. When it comes time to take your medications, you simply tear off the next pouch along the perforation and open it to take the pills inside. Each pouch clearly states the time it should be taken, so there’s no confusion. You will no longer need to keep up with various pill bottles or sort your pills into an organizer each week. We can even package your daily vitamins into our compliance packaging so you can have all your pills conveniently accessible in one package.
