What was this pill for again?

organ shaped pills

pill container telling how often you should take

It would be helpful if a pill was shaped for what part of the body it’s for. Also, the container could tell more user-friendly information like how often I should take what pill for how many days, etc. (at least in Japan).

    COOL Idea!!
    being a Registered Nurse I LOVE this idea!
    Thanks for sharing–it sure would eliminate people taking the wrong pills at the wrong times for the wrong things!

    Thank you, Lisa. I was a little nervous if this idea was really helpful and useful.

    That’s a cute idea. I’m not at the point in my life where I need to take an exuberant amount of pills, but I’m sure this would be helpful!

    That does seem like a good idea, the only problem I can see is if the little lungs and kidney broke apart or if they were too small for people with bad vision to see what they look like. Also, think how great that would be for blind people!

    Thanks for your comments, akeorlando and tdljld. Yeah, the shapes should not make the pills fragile.

  6. Very clever idea, I might even encourage people because they would remember why they are taking the pills.
