Why an Automatic Pill Dispenser Could Be Right for You
Unlike pill boxes, automatic pill dispensers store and dispense medications according to your exact medication schedule. Whether that’s nine pills in the morning, four every morning and two at night or a much more complicated regimen, you simply program the dispenser according to your schedule, and the machine will alert and dispense your pills accordingly.
If you have trouble remembering to take meds, automatic reminder apps or pill dispensers are great choices. With chimes and voice reminders, blinking lights, text alerts and more, automatic pill dispensers let you know it’s time for a dose.
Pill dispensers are also a top choice for folks who have problems taking incorrect dosages — whether taking too much, too little or at the wrong time. By turning over the responsibility to sort and dispense the correct medications at pill times to an automatic pill dispenser, there’s a lot less room for dosage error. According to studies, removing this risk may eliminate up to 125,000 unnecessary U.S. deaths per year, as well as 25% of all U.S. hospitalizations.
Some pill dispensers are battery-powered, while others use power cords and connect to WiFi or a cellular service. Choosing between these comes down to your personal preference, your comfort with technology and, in some cases, how many pills you need it to dispense.
