When you learn that your child has diabetes it can be very overwhelming. To keep your child’s disease under control, it is important to follow a routine and monitor their prescriptions carefully. Read the tips below to help avoid medication errors and keep your child feeling good.

Addiction To Pain Medications: Starting The Road To Recovery With E-Pill

A huge problem in today’s world is the addiction to prescription drug medications. I came across an article on Challenges Addiction Treatment and Relapse Prevention Center’s Website and found that in the United States, there are more people abusing prescription drugs than cocaine, heroin, and ecstasy combined.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, deaths caused by pain medication overdose has risen from less than 4,000 in the year 2000 to more than 11,000 in the year 2007. The Office of National Drug Control Policy also says that opioid abuse is the second-leading cause of accidental death in the U.S., after car crashes.

With statistics like this, it is important to recognize if you or someone you love is fighting an addiction to pain medications. There is an e-pill device that might be able to help. It is called the CompuMed and it is the most tamper proof automatic pill dispenser on the market.

Dealing with an addiction is a hard thing to overcome, but this machine could help to fight the battle. It is important to find someone who can be trusted to fill this machine for you each week, and keep the keys to the machine with them. It is completely tamper proof and will keep the person from getting inside to the pills. An e-pill CompuMed can change one’s life for the better.

If the CompuMed is too far out of your price range, you may want to try something like the MedSafe. The e-pill MedSafe is a digital medication lock box. This safe is not tamper proof like the CompuMed, but it uses a state of the art digital lock and does not come with keys. For more information on the MedSafe click HERE.
Beating an addiction is a hard thing to do, and now e-pill can help you or someone you know get on the road to recovery.

E-Pill Reminders Take On The Food Industry

E-pill isn’t just a great medication reminder! Now the food industry wants in on the benefits we have all been receiving. They are starting to use the popular e-pill medication reminder known as the Multi-Alarm Pocket XL.
This device is now being used across the United States in your local fast food restaurants. That’s right, this reminder device is now a food timer. With up to 37 daily alarms and a missed “pill” indicator, it is no wonder why food industries would also want to take advantage of this great e-pill.
 Popular fast food chains are required to use time tag systems in which they must check on different food items at different times throughout the workday. Depending on their color-coding system, different foods are to be changed at different times. The Multi-Alarm Pocket XL works great in these situations because of its ability to alarm up to 37 times on the hour and half hour. This gives the workers a reminder to check on the food items at the correct times throughout the day, without missing a beat!
Just as it is important to take your medication on time, it is important to make sure customers are receiving the freshest food. It is during those chaotic times at home, or in the kitchen, that the Multi-Alarm Pocket XL will help to remind you to stay on top of all your daily duties, whether it be taking your medication, or turning over food to maintain high food safety standards.

"Save Yourself from Reminding or Texting Mom or Dad Everyday"

Do you think it’s not a big deal to help manage your parent’s medication? Think again! According to the American Society on Aging and the American Society of Consultant Pharmacist Foundation there are
125, 000 deaths each year due to medication non adherence.

Medication nonadherence can be a major problem for any age group, especially to your parents who are prescribed multiple medications due to health conditions. The health consequences are extremely harmful or even deadly.

In an effort to improve medication adherence you, as their son or daughter will organize medications using simple pillboxes and contacting them daily via phone to make sure they’re taking their medications on time.
This daily task can be overwhelming for both yourself and for your parent. This task can overtake your life. From the perspective of your parent, it may seem that you do not trust or feel they are competent to manage their own medications.
As a solution there are several companies offering many different types of reminder devices such as watches, pillboxes with timers and automatic pill dispensers. One unique item e-pill, LLC is offering what is called the CADEX 12-Alarm Medication & Medical ID watch.

The e-pill CADEX 12-Alarm Medication & Medical ID watch not only reminds the user up to 12 daily times, but it will also show a text message for each alarms (up to 36 characters per alarm).
