Are you one of the nearly 70 percent of Americans on at least one prescription medication, like me, or more than 51 percent that take two prescription medications a day? According to the new study by the Mayo Clinic, one out of every five patients are on more than five prescription medications that are taken daily. That doesn't even include the vitamins and other supplements many of us take every day.
I know I have trouble remember to take pills when I am supposed to, so is my husband. It's hard to remember when life gets busy and you are focused on other things.
Sabi has come out with some solutions to help with those problems, especially for traveling and taking medications with you to work or on the run. I was able to test out some of their products and have a chance to share them with you.
The first one I tested was the Holster Grande. In the image above it is the small container in the front. Here's some specifics about it:
The HOLSTER grande pill box is a larger version of our HOLSTER pill box. It is for those who need to carry a larger number of pills, or larger sized pills, in style, each day. This three-compartment daily pill box (2 compartments in the slide-out cartridge, plus one “secret compartment” under the cap) is the perfect pill box for the heavy pill, vitamin or supplement user on the go.
The lid snaps open and the inner cartridge is easy to pull out and push in, securely closing with a click. Deep compartments hold pills of all shapes and sizes and contents are easy to remove.
The HOLSTER grande pill box is convenient and clips to anything - a bag, a briefcase, a pocket - so that pills of all sorts, from prescription drugs and vitamins to aspirin and sleeping pills, can be accessed quickly, easily, and shamelessly - on flights, on the road, or at a trendy little café.
I really like this little Holster. It is easy to use, holds enough pills to get through the day and holds larger sized pills. Several supplements I take are good sized and bulky. The little Holster does a great job holding them for me.
The other two products I tried out are the Folio and the Folio Grande. I have to say that for a pill storage container, these are really nice looking! In the image with all three products, they are the two in the back.
Here's a little about the Folio:
The FOLIO pill box is made for those on a twice daily a.m./p.m. regimen of vitamins, supplements, or pills. It is a cut above the standard 14-door pill box and is much easier to load, with one universal lid.It’s also much easier to extract pills from the FOLIO pill box. With other pill organizers, it’s nearly impossible to get your fingers into the pill box compartments and it’s necessary to turn the entire pill box upside-down to shake out its contents. The FOLIO pill box features rounded compartments that make extraction of pills quick and easy.The FOLIO pill box is also much sleeker than any of the twice-daily pill organizers out there. It fits elegantly and stylishly into purse or briefcase, and can be taken out anywhere.
When you open the Folio (like a book) the compartments are all organized with the days of the week and slots for morning and night. Each compartment is not really big, but enough for several medications or supplements. What I like is the elastic strap that helps hold it shut and that it is much easy to open thatn some kind of snapping container.
Here's a little about the Folio Grande:
The FOLIO grande pill box is our response to many customer requests for our weekly FOLIO pill box, only larger. This pill box is made for those on a heavier twice daily a.m./p.m. regimen of vitamins, supplements, or pills. Or for those who take large-sized vitamins or supplements. It is a cut above the standard 14-door pill box and is much easier to load, with one universal lid.It’s also much easier to extract pills from the FOLIO grande pill box. With other pill organizers, it’s nearly impossible to get your fingers into the pill box compartments and it’s necessary to turn the entire pill box upside-down to shake out its contents. The FOLIO grande pill box features rounded compartments that make extraction of pills quick and easy.The FOLIO grande pill box is also much sleeker than any of the twice-daily pill organizers out there. It fits elegantly and stylishly into purse or briefcase, and can be taken out anywhere.
You can see that there is a good deal of difference in the size of this Folio to the other. The compartments are much deeper and hold a lot more. I really like this since I take one prescription a day and 5 supplements, and several of the supplements are good sized. They all fit neatly into the compartments and it has the same great elastic strap to hold it closed.
Here's a comparison of the two. You can really see the difference in size and how much more the one can hold
