Easy Med / Blister Packs

EasyMed is a weekly dosage system designed with you in mind. Your medicines are dispensed into convenient 7-day packs. These packs are divided into separate compartments, according to the time of day you need to take them. Each time of the day is clearly marked on the tablet organiser pack - breakfast, lunch, dinner and bed, to ensure the right medication is taken at the right time.
