Blister pack pill packaging! Login/Join

The ones for individual pills that say to fold back a corner and then tear. But actually when you fold back the corner it breaks off!
Generic drug comes in a bottle so all you have to do is attempt to get the foil protective cover under the lid off verses the name drug blister packaging, but you get twice the pills for 1/2 the price, plus less aggravation, though the foil bottle covers often require a knife also but at least the bottle is larger than a small blister pack for an individual pill.

Concur. The blister packs are bogus. Half the time the damn pill pops out and ends up on the floor.

And for arthritis medication? What a joke.

My favorites are the Alka Seltzer Cold and Flu capsules. The back side is made from carbon fiber reinforced cardboard. The bubble side is transparent aluminum. The guy that can tear open the package is one mean SOB.

Do you believe the manufacturers want to try to sell you a product that is unpleasant to use?

This is true of so much packaging these days. Trying to get something open, destroys the product half the time. I use one of those industrial style pair of scissors but even then, it's a struggle.

I keep my Mini Buck knife next to my BP pills. Seems to be the only way to open them.

Does the difficult packaging raise your BP? Wink
