This pill popper and remover can remove pills from the majority of packet types, and collects medication in the handle to enable the user to then place the correct pills in an organiser.
Please note that this pill popper works with the vast majority of pills and their packaging but not all. It is designed for pills (not capsules) in plastic packaging with a foil back.
Great item super fast delivery A++++
Does what it says on the tin
Great for dispensing pills, just press down hard, the hammer section could do with being a little more firmer and stable as it tends to slide sideways when trying to press a pill out of the foil. However it does what its made for
This dispenser works well with the average size pills but long ones get broken or crushed unless you line them up exactly with the shape of the hole. Also capsules often get crushed, sometimes causing them to spill their contents. Then the very tiny pills I have, the ones I have most trouble with pushing through myself, just do not pop out of their card at all when using this. So if you have normal, round, average shaped pills then great gadget, otherwise it needs rethinking.
I have arthritis, it's particularly painful in my right thumb (naturally I'm right-handed!). I bought this in hope it might help. I can definitely decant more pills in one go than before (put into child-proof bottles because of grandkids). If I need to decant all of my month's pills in one go (which add up to over 1000 individual tablets!), I get nowhere. I can envisage getting much further forward than before. I opened long, soft plastic blister packs (the only potentially tricky job as the pill "sheets" bend particularly easily there) and stronger plastic for smaller round pills. Both worked well and though my thumb did start giving up, it was a lot later than in the past. If you have difficulty in getting tablets out of the packet, it's well worth the few quid to give this a go. If you can, hold the dispenser a bit upright and the tablets will drop into the hollow handle and you can then put them in your container directly. Also place the corner of the dispenser just "inside" the pill and it will make them come out more easily. Definitely worth a try!
