Popular Pill Packing Systems

  • Blister Packs – This system uses pre-formed plastic to seal medication into convenient cardboard or foil backed packs, that allow you to access one dose at a time. Blister packs can accommodate 9-90 day supplies of any size or shape pill.
  • Prescription Vials – Prescription vials are the traditional tubes that hold loose pills and are concealed with child proof lids. These vials are affordable and easy to fill quickly.
  • Padded Envelopes for Prescription Shipping – Many pharmacies are beginning to ship prescriptions to their patients for added convenience and discretion. If you are mailing prescription meds, you should use padded mailers that protect the medication, allowing it to arrive intact and ready to use. This method is ideal for patients who cannot easily travel to pick up their medication.
