The conventional pill dispensers don't work for me and using my mobile has not helped so wondered if anyone has bought an electronic pill dispenser. The cheapest one i have seen is almost £90, a bit expensive for something which might not suit.

    Hi there!

    Sorry cannot help you here - no ideas spring to mind. Do you have to take meds every day or it is a bit spasmodic which does of course make life more difficult.

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    As I take pills every day, I put the pill bottle on its side after taking them during the morning. During the evening I return the bottle upright so that the next day I know to take them.

    If upright, take a pill. If the pill bottle is lying on its side, the pill for that day has been taken.
