The RX Timer Cap is a simple yet genius little invention that counts the hours and minutes since a medication was taken. It's an empty medication bottle with a timer built in the cap. The cap works like a stopwatch. Every time you open and close the cap to take medication, the timer automatically resets itself and then begins counting anew. There is no need to remember that Med 1 was taken at 8 am, Med 2 at noon, and Med 3 at 3 pm. The timers do it for you! Without those helpful timers, I would have lost my mind trying to remember when to give my kids and my husband their various meds, or when to take mine.
The bottles of the RX Timer Cap come in two sizes: standard and large. I found that placing the whole medication in its original container inside an RX Timer Cap bottle worked best for us. If the original packaging would not fit, I would write down the name of the patient, the name of the medication, and the schedule on a piece of paper and place it in the bottle. Then I lined up the meds on a high shelf - kids in the house and all - and keeping track was a breeze. Need to tell the pediatrician when your sick child took her fever medicine last? Easy, just glance at the RX Timer Cap.
The cap can be especially helpful also for those who are monitoring meds for pets or parents, and especially when the patient needs to take several prescriptions. As anyone who has been the caretaker of elderly parents knows, keeping track of mom or dad’s meds can be difficult. With the Timer Cap, you can easily see when their medications were dispensed last.
The RX Timer Cap has given me invaluable peace of mind at a time when my family members were ill. I highly recommend it - even if all you have to remember to take is your daily vitamin.
