Taking several different medicines needs lots of extra care. Aherns Pharmacy makes it simple and easy to take the right medicines at the right time by dividing your tablets into separately sectioned blisters, each marked with the time of day when the tablets should be taken.
There is a choice of three blister pack sizes depending on your medicines and you, or your carer, can easily check that the right medicines have been taken at the right time.
If you tell us about your situation we will help you decide if a blister pack is the best solution for you, or if another course of action might be of more help. (Charges may apply)
How does it work
There are three options available to you - 2/4/6 dose depending on how may times a day you need to take your medication. All packs provide one week's worth of medication which you can collect on a monthly basis. We also provide a management chart.
The pharmacy team can arrange to organise the medicines into separately sectioned blister packets, each marked with the day and time when different tablets should be taken.
This not only helps you take all the correct medicines at the correct time, but it may also help to identify if any doses have been missed, both for you and for someone who may be helping to look after you.
