I think this is something very useful who have Alzheimer's.

I found it on the other days and I think it will fit here as well.

Edit: Found it for someone interested.

u/Saviour- · 24 pointsr/phenibut

If you don't like caps, try oblates. It's an edible film you can swallow, people use it for stuff like kratom so they don't have to deal with the taste. Way better than dealing with caps.

If you get a metal pill holder for your keychain and keep your earplugs in there, you'll always have them when you need them. I can't recommend this enough.

u/rafaelloaa · 12 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

I'm a guy who's not had to deal with the same difficulties you're facing, but I have had my share of meds/pain, and I've picked up a few tricks along the way, some of which might be of use.

With regards to daily medications, I have a routine where I put my daily morning/night little case (this one, or similar) on my table directly next to my bed, so I am literally staring at it when I wake up. I also have a bottle of water there. So I wake up, sit up, and take my morning meds. There's nothing on that table except for my glasses case, my daily meds case, and the bottle of water.

In the evening, same deal. As I'm getting to bed, I take my evening meds, and swap out the empty container for the next morning's one.

For the first few years I was on daily medications, I would have a daily timer set on my phone at a fixed, and as soon as it went off I would go and take my meds. If I wasn't able to take them right then (out of the house or w/e), I would re-set the timer for an arbitrary length of time, where I thought I'd be back home. That way I wouldn't forget. Over time, I've stopped needing to set a timer, but do what works.

Point is, you can do it! Take the step that lets you be able to utilize the wonders of modern medicine (tm).

As for remembering to take pain meds when you're in pain, I feel your pain (hah). I've been through that situation a lot of times. The best strategies I've figured out are to keep just one or two of a lighter pain med in a case in my bag (I used this one, but anything that tightly seals is fine), as well as one on my desk (as opposed to the rest of the bottle, which is up in the box with the rest of my meds, etc). That way when I'm hurting I can just grab the pill there and take it, and I know ahead of time that I've just put what's safe to take in a single dose out.

I've also on occasion put a sticky note on my computer monitor that just said "if you're hurting, take pain meds"... Surprisingly effective.

Sorry for the essay, I'm just hopeful I can help share some stuff that worked for me, stuff I wish someone had told me years ago.

u/melanie_me · 12 pointsr/ADHD

I have a timer cap for my prescription bottle. Each time you take the lid off the bottle the timer resets so you know the last time you opened it. No more mystery. Doesn't help if I accidentally leave the house without taking my meds, but at least I don't take 2 by mistake.

I have this one: . One problem: The lid does not fit on the prescription bottle my pills come in. Solution: I transfer my pills to the bottle that came with the cap and carefully peel off the prescription label and stick it on the timer bottle (so I know when to call my doc for a refill and for legal reasons).

u/lordofthejelly · 9 pointsr/TheRedPill

Your list is good, however there's a few things you're likely to run into.


TL;DR: of what’s ahead

You only have so much willpower to expend in any given day, you probably can't pursue everything at once. To maximize your goal fulfillment, remember the following:

  1. Cut unnecessary drains out of your life.
  2. Figure out which goals are most important. You don’t have to pursue them all at once
  3. Figure out which goals (once reached) will make the others easier.
  4. Look for smart investments that will make your goals easier to fulfill (ie cost less willpower)


    In a nutshell, humans have a finite amount of willpower that we can expend in one day. There are only so many conscious decisions that you can make in one 24-hour period, only so many things you can force yourself to do.

    And that’s fine, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. We’re all human, that’s how we are.

    Think of as being like money, where you only have a finite supply at any given time. If you suddenly start expending more on one part of your life, one of two things will happen:

  5. You'll eventually peter out. You're spending extra willpower (or money) that you don't really have, and you can only do that for so long before you go back to doing what you were before. OR
  6. You'll keep at it, but you'll find yourself dropping the ball have enough willpower (or money) to go after your new pursuits, but not enough to also keep at it with your old ones.

    So you might take on new fitness goals but find yourself dropping the ball on your diet goals, similar to how you might start making payments on a car only to find yourself unable to pay the electric bill. Make sense?

    That's the bad news. The good news is, there's a few strategies that you can use to stretch your willpower a lot further, adapted from the financial advice world.


    1. "If you're in a hole, stop digging."

    In other words, be prepared to make significant lifestyle changes.

    For example, suppose you're using all your willpower just to get through the day without punching your boss in the face. Guess what, you need a different job long as you stay there, you will be so sapped of willpower/energy that you'll never accomplish your other goals.

    Make sense? Look for the unnecessary willpower drains that you can cut out of your life. Your friends, your church, your job, your girlfriend. All are fair game, if they're only sapping your strength.

    2. Some goals are more important right now than others. There is nothing wrong with choosing to focus on a few and letting the others go for now.

    Financial example: I have credit card debt at 20% APR, and student loan debt at 8% APR. Do I try to pursue both equally, at the same time?

    Answer: no. Obviously I heavily pursue the credit card debt first, and worry about the student debt later.

    Similarly, I might decide to only worry about diet and sleep for now, and take on my porn addiction and lack of fitness later.

    And remember: once you've established a good habit, the amount of willpower you spend on it will be significantly less than what you spend on it right now.

    For example, right now you might be spending all your willpower on eating correctly. But a year from now, it will come naturally to that point, eating correctly will be so easy that it doesn’t cost you any willpower whatsoever.

    Then you’re free to start pursuing your fitness you easily have enough willpower to pursue both diet and exercise, because you didn’t try to do them all at once.


    3. In addition to #2, some goals (once they’ve become second nature) will actually make it easier (ie cost less willpower) to accomplish other goals. I call them “enabling goals.”

    Sleep is the best example…if you are able to get the appropriate amount of sleep every night, suddenly your other goals all become easier and cost less willpower because you’re not so damn tired all the time.

    So if you can’t do all your goals at once, focus on sleep (or other enabling goals) first. You get those down, the others will follow.

    Make sense?


    4. A smart investment up front will save money (or willpower) down the road

    Financial example: you ditch the junker and spend extra money on a car that is highly reliable and gets good gas mileage, saving you mechanic’s bills and gas money down the road.

    Personal goals examples:

  7. I have a lot of nutritional supplements that I take every morning and evening. At first, I was unscrewing every bottle, every morning and evening. I was a dumbass who wasn't putting any thought into it, and surprise surprise, I was failing. I just wouldn't get around to it.

    Eventually, I bought four of these weekly pill organizers on Amazon. Now, I just go and fill them up once a month (not difficult), and pop one slot open and take the supplements every morning and evening (also not difficult).

  8. I used to try to eat greens...but by the time I was done, I looked like a cow chewing its cud and my jaw was literally tired. And again, I was failing at it.

    Until I went and bought a used, I juice once a week, and getting my vegetable intake is as easy as drinking it.

  9. One of the supplements I take in the evening (per #3) is a small amount of melatonin...this in turn makes getting adequate sleep much easier, which makes all my other goals a lot easier.

    You get the idea? A smart investment can mean a far smaller willpower expenditure in pursuit of your goal. Figure out what’s holding you up, and if there’s something worth investing in to make it easier.

    Easier = less willpower expended = greater chance of success & more willpower for your other goals.


    Now go start fulfilling your goals, TL;DR is at the top. Questions?
u/SetYourGoals · 8 pointsr/videos

You do need a prescription, but I've never heard of anyone being denied. I just asked my regular doctor, who I'd never met before, at a physical and he wrote the prescription instantly, knew exactly what I was talking about. That was years ago, never had to go back in.

So, it's sort of complicated, but like I said, Finasteride is the name of the drug itself, Propecia is the name brand most people know it as (like how Advil is actually the drug Ibuprofen). Finsateride was originally invented as a drug to reduce prostate size in men with enlarged prostates, I believe, and when they started using it they noticed all these old guys were regrowing hair, so they resold the same drug as a hair pill.

Propecia is really expensive, at least $1200 a year, possibly more. Propecia is a pill that is a 1mg dose of Finasteride. However, you can get prescribed the generic version of just plain Finasteride in a higher 5mg per pill dose, that is supposed to be for prostates. Then you use a pill cutter (I got this one on Amazon for $4) to cut the pills into 1/4th. So then it is a 1.25mg dose (my doctor said the 0.25mg extra is not important enough to care about).

I live in California, and with no insurance mine costs $9 for 30 pills. Cut each pill into 4 doses. That's 120 days for $9, and 3 bottles will get you through a whole year. So $27 a year. Same exact drug, you do just a tiny bit of work (cutting the pills is honestly kind of satisfying to me) and it's 7 cents a pill instead of $3 or 4 per pill.

Note that the pill doesn't work for everyone. I know people who had a great regrowth of their hair, and some who it didn't work at all for. But it works for most I think. For me, it just froze my hairloss right were it was, but no significant regrowth. I was going bald fast at 25, so this was a godsend. I just wish I'd gotten on it sooner.

Most people suggest you do it in conjunction with Rogiane and a Ketoconazole shampoo. Those two plus Fin are called The Big Three. For more info check out /r/tressless, which is a sub just about hairloss.

u/Dimingo · 8 pointsr/starfinder_rpg

Yes, you do the same thing that they do.

If you're running a "small fleet" chances are that you've got a number of single seat craft which lack the crew to do more than move and attack (which should help speed things up).

If you're controlling more than 2 or 3 ships may help to get rolling aids to speed up that process. Personally I'd recommend using [Roll 20] ( as that makes rolling, tracking the rolls, tracking stats, etc. much easier; on top of having an easily adjustable battlemap.

If that's not an option, picking up a [large pill organizer] ( and dropping a d20 into each one of them would allow you to roll 7 times at once (also useful for easily making hidden rolls).

Here's some other things that might help as well.

Starship Combat Resources

[Starship Role Cards] (

Created by kuzcoburra, these use the new DCs from [Paizo's FAQ] ( and allow to to see all the checks you can make at a glance, really good for players to have.

[One Page Starship Roles] (

This seems (to me) more geared to a GM or players who routinely fill multiple roles.

[Shipbuilding Tool] (

Solid website that helps you build ships. Simple enough to share designs (exports as JSON data) between people as well.

u/MowGrassThrowMeDown · 7 pointsr/kratom

I think most of us who use capsules use the 00 size, but if you don't have any issues swallowing the 000 I think you'll be fine. Something else to consider might be using oblate discs or pouches. It's an edible super thin film. Lots of people use them for their powdered herbs.

u/CharlesP2009 · 7 pointsr/Hypothyroidism

T4 has a half life of 5-7 days so this won't make much difference in the grand scheme of things.

Drink plenty of water, stay away from caffeine, consider getting a weekly pill organizer to help you keep things straight.

I bought this. Best investment ever. Don't have to think about it. Don't have to remember to use an app or write anything down. I can also tell if someone else has opened the bottle!

u/dnew · 5 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

Fill it once a week. Problem solved. It also gives you a week to realize you've run out and need to buy more.

u/TheContrarian2 · 5 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

Been there, done that! You are RIGHT. I've posted about this a few times, but I'm a fat dude and attacked the Amicalola approach trail (from the bottom of the falls) like a nutbag. I was drinking a LOT of water. I drained my 2 liter bag at least twice plus a couple 1 liter bottles. I was sweating like a pig at an Alabama bar-b-que. I started having heart palpitations while on top of Springer and they didn't get any better at all. The next morning, I had to bail on my brother at Three Forks because I was a bit scared. I hit the ER in Dalonega GA and got pumped up up with an IV and I was right as right. The Walmart in Dalonega sold Electrolyte gummies in their pharmacy department and I eat a few of those a day and was fine for the rest of my section.

This year, I started at Damascus and had some of these with me, and I never had a problem.

The thing I learned is that when people tell you to 'stay hydrated! Drink Drink Drink!!!', there can be too much. You have to replace that salt!

u/ldnpoolsound · 5 pointsr/loseit

Get some electrolyte tablets like these because it's not just water that you've depleted through drinking. Also, consider preventative measures:

If I'm going out to drink, I leave 40 oz of water on my night stand. Drink some water before you go to bed and make it easy for yourself by placing it right there.

Stay hydrated as you're drinking. If you're at a bar, make sure to ask for water if they don't serve it to you automatically.

Pace yourself.

I see these suggestings of pill minders, but my favorite solution is the timer cap. No need to fill it weekly, good way to keep all your extras in the same bottle, just very fool proof.

u/Zappy_Kablamicus · 5 pointsr/Drugs

Lol, well put. Yeah they make these

u/TheBloatedPope · 4 pointsr/afinil

Modalert is easy enough to break up by hand, even into quarters. With Waklert, you'll probably need something like this, even to halve it:

u/capgras_delusion · 4 pointsr/answers

Moisture can break down pills, and it gets worse if you cut them in half because you're getting rid of the outer coating and exposing the center to ambient moisture.

If you're just cutting them in half, leaving them on the nightstand, and taking them the next day, it shouldn't do anything. If you're leaving them cut in half in the bathroom, exposed to the air, they're going to break down more quickly. Sometimes you can see the physical degradation of the pill, but that shouldn't happen unless you completely forget about it or you're trying to wear it down.

If you're taking them with you, use a metal pill holder that attaches to a keychain. If you're just putting them in your pocket, already cut, the inner bit is vulnerable to rubbing against the foil or the fabric as well as ambient moisture, including your sweat.

u/Battle_Rattle · 4 pointsr/Ultralight

I used Medi-lyte tablets for the second half of the summer and really enjoyed them. I never bonked or got that weird feeling I usually do when I'm deficient in any of the alkali metals. Remember people, your energy production is pretty much a function of an electrochemical potassium gradient across cell walls. Keep potassium up.

u/Urtehnoes · 4 pointsr/TumblrInAction

Ok I don't know which comment to reply to, because everyone has the same issue, but here's what worked awesome for me!

Pill Bottle Timer Cap

I mean all it does is start a timer every time it's been opened. The cool guy top doesn't fit my Rx bottles, but they come with a bottle that fits it anyways. It's honestly super dope. I once took a double dose of Adderall because I forgot that I'd just taken it mere moments before. Yikes. never again.

I got mine over a year ago, and the time has just started to fade. But apparently you can replace it with just a regular ol' watch battery.

u/blueshiftlabs · 4 pointsr/ADHD
u/MantisTobogan-MD · 4 pointsr/PipeTobacco

It also has the benefit of keeping the tobacco tamped down so nothing spills all over when you open it.

u/awesomeideas · 4 pointsr/slatestarcodex

I suggest you physically go to a pharmacy or Walmart or the like and buy earplugs in bulk. If you're black, you probably won't be able to find flesh-colored plugs, but for everyone else they'll have something that'll blend in.

I keep two plugs on my keychain in a little aluminum pill case. Remove the o-ring because it'll eventually make the bottom fall off and it's not actually necessary. It feels great being the only one without ringing ears after going to a bar or hearing some live music.

EDIT: This week (in the US) Walgreens has 30% off online orders and I bought a bunch of their "Mack's Ultra Soft Foam Earplugs."

u/Spitsongoats · 3 pointsr/kratom

Pip Oblate Bag Type - Japanese Edible Film, 50pcs

They also have cheaper flat circles that are more parachute like versus bags but they are out of stock.

Ever had the Japanese candy botan with the edible rice paper? This is similar to that. I toss and wash because these make me nervous that they'll rip open. It's also hard to swallow IMO. I'd love if someone chimed in on tips to use these. I put 1/2 tsp in a bag so it shouldn't be overfilled.

u/Skolyr · 3 pointsr/kratom

Oblate disks or ham-chutes are safer to ingest; replace TP with a piece of thinly sliced deli ham.

u/MaximilianKohler · 3 pointsr/HumanMicrobiome

Do not do that.

Taymount reported a death from naso tube FMT. Sticking a tube down your throat like that carries significant risk for scraping/puncture. It would not be significantly better than using that syringe instead to fill capsules.

In my experience, donor quality is the #1 factor, everything else is relatively minor in comparison.

Someone sent me a link to this Japanese edible wrap

I would not recommend that either. I imagine there would be a significant choking hazard, and it shouldn't be that much better than just using a syringe to fill capsules.

u/hypercube42342 · 3 pointsr/kratom

Oblate pouches are your friend

Or you can make it into a tea. I can’t stomach it on its own either.

u/notsocooldude · 3 pointsr/kratom

Try these. Very easy and fast to pack. They go down easy and no taste.

u/TableTopFarmer · 3 pointsr/camping

I have a Walmart brand solar lantern similar to this one. I keep it collapsed, in one of the center cupholders, so that it is always handy and charged for the times when we are setting up camp after dark.

A gear net that stretches across the inside roof of the UTE is good for stashing a wallet, phone, eyeglasses, slippers, and a change of clothes for the morning.

If you want privacy or the ability to sleep in after the sun rises, strip magnets and black cloth will suffice to cover your windows.

If you like to cook, rather than pack a passel of spice bottles, transfer your favorites into daily medication organizers. If you are road tripping and will be out for a while, look for organizers with larger compartments.

If you will be camping in the desert in the summer, get a spray water bottle to dampen your top sheet before you go to sleep. That will keep you cool until you do and the sheet will be dry again by morning.

If you will be camping in hot and humid areas, a small rechargeable usb fan set to blow on your face and neck will make you feel much cooler.

u/MySweetUsername · 3 pointsr/MDMA

I've used something like that with other legal pills mixed in many times.

u/dark_roast · 3 pointsr/Music

u/Proverbs31girl · 3 pointsr/POTS

Hi! These are the capsules I use! I buy Himalayan sea salt from ShopRite, since it is healthier than regular salt and full of minerals, and I pour it into a bowl. I then open up the capsules and just fill them with salt! How many I need per day depends on how much I am doing - or how much heat I am exposed to - but they are extremely helpful on the go. I bring them around in a little container in my purse. I also do the same thing with sodium ascorbate vitamin C - which is a natural mast cell stabilizer! Also - if any of you are struggling with anxiety from POTS, or low energy, I honestly cannot recommend magnesium malate enough. Please check with your doctor and titrate up slowly because magnesium can lower blood pressure, but this article explains how low blood pressure can actually be a result of a long-standing magnesium deficiency. I highly encourage you all to check out magnesium. It has been shown to have interaction with the benzodiazepine receptor. I also have found pharma gaba to be very helpful in a pinch for anxiety - but take caution as this one can really lower blood pressure. TINY amounts can be extremely helpful in anxiety-provoking situations. If any of you have anymore questions, please feel free to send me a message. I have done extensive research on all of this! :)

u/adhdjd · 3 pointsr/ADHD

Caps are like these, but I got mine from rite aid and they were much cheaper:

I'm not finished with the kondo book, but the current tl;dr is

(1) choose what to organize by category, not room (I.e., clothes day, makeup day, as opposed to closet day, because people tend to store things of the same category in multiple locations), and

(2) immediately donate or trash anything in that category that doesn't bring you joy.

u/2024AM · 2 pointsr/antidepressants

I'm in a similar situation, I'm taking a dose of 15mg, my doctor forgot renewing my 5mg prescription so I have to split the 10mgs for a while.

there is something called a "pill cutter", I think it could be worth checking your local pharmacy if they sell one, otherwise you can split the pills with a sharp knife (which is what I will be doing for the next couple days).

if my geometry skills arent completely garbage, try cutting along the line of the the letter "T" on the pill (I made this image)

I tried cutting exactly between the letters "T" and "L", and the left part came out as bigger.

u/Rawtashk · 2 pointsr/tressless

>Are your 5mg pills small too?

Yes, they are. And they're also smaller than the 1mg ones when I was on generic Propecia.

>Quartering the pill isn't impossible, but it's hard to do it really well. Similar experience for you?

What kind of pill cutter do you have? I use this one and while I wouldn't say it's super easy, it's not that hard. Do one cut, rotate the 2 halves together, make one more cut.

u/coloumb · 2 pointsr/lexapro

Way too fast. Typically it's not a good idea to alternate the dosage when withdrawing from an SSRI as it puts your brain/body in a yoyo state of withdrawal. However, since everyone is different - the only way to know if alternating works is to try it yourself:

Before you start - get a pill cutter: .

  1. Once you have a pill cutter and assuming you have 10mg dosage size - Alternate 10mg / 5mg [cut 10mg in half] for a week, then take 5mg for at least 3 weeks and continue to take it until you feel mostly OK for at least an additional week [minimum time to take 5mg is 4 weeks].
  2. If you feel mostly ok, alternate 5mg/2.5mg [cut 5mg in half] and take it for a week, then take 2.5mg for at least 3 weeks and continue to take it until you feel mostly OK for at least 1 additional week.
  3. If you feel mostly ok, alternate 2.5mg/0mg for a week then stop. This is when the discontinuation side effects kick in and typically last 4-8 weeks. If at anytime the side effects are too brutal [keep you bed ridden], then only way to resolve side effects are to reinstate 2.5mg for ~3 weeks and then alternate 2.5/1.25 for a week, then take 1.25mg for at least 3 more weeks, then stop.

    The preferred method of tapering off:

  4. Drop down to 7.5mg and take it for at least 4 weeks.
  5. If you feel mostly ok after 4 weeks, dropped down to 5mg and take it for 4 weeks.
  6. If you feel mostly ok after 4 weeks, drop down to 2.5mg and take it for 4 weeks.
  7. if you feel mostly ok after 5 weeks, stop.
  8. If at anytime the side effects are too brutal, reinstate 2.5mg, take it for ~2 weeks, and reduce smaller amount 1.25mg for at least 4 weeks.
  9. Then try stopping.
u/LeopoldTheLlama · 2 pointsr/ADHD

As far as splitting concerta goes, I'd call your pharmacist and ask. Then, if the pharmacist says no, you have it from his mouth, and not strangers on the internet, and you can go back to your psych with that.

About cutting pills in general, they make pill cutters that you can use to cut pills in half.

You’ll probably need a lot. like. a lot. but could work definitely has helped w me and if it makes you tired don’t be surprised it’s kinda weird w adhd my ex’s dad told me how it’s the opposite in the brain bc ADHD ppl take meds to calm them down where as if other ppl take them it’ll do nothing or hype em up. If others drink coffee they get jittery and we chill tf out. but in summary that dosage is very high and could be too strong. if you wanna make the most of it I say get a pill splitter like this one and take 20 mg in the morning and 20 at lunch or something. and tell guardian how you think it’s too strong. best of luck.

Where do you get these? I make capsules but this may be a handy alternative when I need something in a hurry. I was searching on Amazon and I have no idea what I am looking for....

u/ShesTyping · 2 pointsr/kratom

Oblate disks. I actually like the little oblate pouches because I'm lazy -

The trick is to have a little bit of water or other drink in your mouth, just enough to wet the inside of your mouth well, and then take a quick sip of drink to wash the packet down. I am a fan.

u/Asterea · 2 pointsr/ADHD

I use a 7 day pill thingy but in each container is enough of my certain drug I need for the week; the original bottles are put away in a first aid box until I need to refill the container Sunday night.

Doesn't help with meds I don't take often (i.e. OTC meds); currently driving myself insane trying to remember if I took some painkillers after work. :p

u/Faust723 · 2 pointsr/ADHD

I had this problem at first too. If you're taking it daily, I would highly recommend a 7-day pillbox like /u/kalupa said. Really helps stay organized and getting the right doses prepared ahead of time. I put it somewhere that I can't miss, which is typically in front of my alarm clock. If you take multiple doses a day, get the AM/PM version of the box.

Then, I leave that specific day open so when I wake up to turn the alarm and can barely see, I can just grab the box and toss 'em back like skittles. Now when I'm feeling weird and not sure if the meds are kicking in, I just look at the box and see if I missed it today for whatever reason. And that's happened at least a handful of times.

  1. This is going to be long >.>

    Apple Cinnamon Raisin Cake

    3 cups flower

    1 1/2 cups sugar

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1 teaspoon nut meg (I usually go about 2 or 3)

    2 teaspoons cinnamon (I usually go 2-3 table spoons but I like it with a lot)

    1 cup raisins (I always add more and never measure. Just when it looks like there is enough)

    3 cups peeled cubed apples (Try to get tart apples if you can)

    1 cup oil

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    3 eggs

    Okay here's what you do. Add everything up to up the apples and give a little stir. Stir in the apples. Stir in the oil and vanilla (not all the way just so the stuff get wet). Add your eggs (Try to make a little valley where you can break the yolks and beat them a little bit). Mix everything well. Put in greased bunt pan. Shove it into your oven at 350 for 60 mins. Sit back and eat the whole damn thing. Perfect for breakfast, snacks and desserts!

    This is literally the best way to put it all together, even from what the book says because this gives it the best texture and best strength I added the flower last once and it was a crumbly mass of crumbs. Good with a tiny bit of milk but no bueno for your hands.

    I can't make this cake that often either because I'm addicted and I will sit there and eat the whole cake myself, and it's a big cake. I made two one time and I ate both with my dog. And there's really not too much sugar in it. I also forgot to add that there are no photos of this cake because above reason: I ate the photos of the cake too.

    Second thing: Art keeps me going because I know no matter what it doesn't matter what anyone says. My Art. My Way.

    Third thing: Third thing: It's a bear. It's Rambo. NO! It's rambopandabear! They're hear to to take names and ask if you've met their little friend. (I don't even know)

    Fourth Thing:

    Because everyone needs duck tape for those hard to shut up people and the ones you don't want getting away. Now in the new colour of green, you can use this to fix just about anything in your home or office and keep quiet those pesky coworkers two cubicles down that talk the whole day away. Also available in every colour and pattern under the sun to help keep you entertained.

    Okay I hope I kept you entertained and not going OMG why wont she shut up haha. It'll be interesting to see what other people come up with. I'd like this to be my winning item: Mad Hatter Pill Box but if you decide to go under ten or whatever I've got items I can switch it for. Really a fun contest and I hope you have a wonderful and fantastic birthday with friends, family, hopefully drinking if you've got the family I've got, and just good times all around.
u/A_Blank_Space · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This pill holder has been on my list since I made it back in July. I want it because I'm tired of using an old Dramamine bottle to carry around my pills, and this Alice in Wonderland one would make me smile when I saw it.

u/lulzcat773 · 2 pointsr/audioengineering


No matter what type of earplugs you use buy yourself a Rite-Aid Keychain Pill container like this.

They are perfect for earplugs, built out of metal so they never break, and save you hundreds of dollars of lost earplugs. I have had the same pair of earplugs for over a year now and I always keep them on my person.

</end psa>

u/lolwatsyk · 2 pointsr/ADHD

I tried to read up on those laws for CA and it does say that technically they should always be in their prescription bottle but here's why that's bullshit:

My parents are both over 60 and they have every common illness in the book. They take 4-5 pills in the morning and again in the evening. When they go to dinner or on vacation they just take them with them in a weekly container or a small pill box and I bet you if they were stopped by police, they wouldn't be hassled for it.

My solution was to buy these (pack of 2 containers), and link them together. In one, I carry my meds (extra doses of 10mg IR for afternoon boosts, and gabapentin and valium for anxiety) in one AND a copy of my prescriptions rolled up in the other. I get my prescriptions filled at CVS so the paperwork that comes with it has copies of the prescription so they're legit.

I haven't been stopped and searched yet but I feel like this is valid enough. It proves I have a prescription and it has all the numbers on there in case police want to call CVS or my psychiatrist to confirm. And I have my ID to prove it's me.

But again, that we have to deal with the hassle when older people don't is bullshit, IMO.

u/anonymousforever · 2 pointsr/ChronicPain

If you just want an am/pm pill dispenser, and something you could leave on the kitchen counter with that week's meds in it (nothing massive) try this it has push buttons to open the compartments. here is a different one that is interesting too.

u/CakesNPie · 2 pointsr/bipolar

Bought a pill organizer and it's positively huge. I don't like the standard ones because they chip my nail polish (yes I know dumb reason) and it's just so much easier to push a button.

u/lord_of_vader · 2 pointsr/keto

I just take two of these every morning.

u/smartache · 2 pointsr/xxketo

Electrolytes are sodium, potassium, and magnesium. When you keto (especially at the beginning) you are drinking a lot of water and peeing a lot, which can deplete your electrolytes. So an electrolyte supplement includes those things. I got NuSalt to sprinkle on foods because it has a lot of potassium which is my lowest one I think. I also ordered these electrolyte tablets that contain all three in small amounts, to carry with me for when I get dizzy/crampy. I had previously been drinking PoweradeZero which was ok, but kind of expensive, and didn't have that much of the minerals in it. Also full of fake sugar.

For detailed info I would highly recommend this segement of the FAQ from /r/keto

u/theguyfromthattime · 2 pointsr/backpacking

Personally, I prefer to just drink straight water, so I just started using electrolyte tablets instead. I haven't been doing it very long, but they do seem to help, though I've been meaning to do a little more research into figuring out how much I should be taking.

Everyone will probably vote me down but go to a reputable headshop/smokeshop and ask if they have Urban Ice Organics Kratom. This is how I first got into Kratom, they sell 25 caps for $20-$25. Urban Ice Organics has quality Kratom as well, I can account for that, but it must be that brand.

If you have the time, go to amazon and buy this capsule machine and capsules to go with it. Then buy the Kramtom powder from online and fill the capsules yourself, much cheaper that way,

u/DoYaFeelLuckyPunk · 2 pointsr/gout

26 with Gout, started when i was 23.

I'm no fuckup, but drink heavily every weekend (and weeknights too throughout college).

To be honest, whenever I start feeling ANY discomfort, i immediately pop an anti-inflammatory. Keeps the extreme pain at bay.
I just try and carry around a couple Aleve/Naproxen pills whereever I go. For example, I now know if i feel symptoms (stiffness, discomfort, lack of mobility in my toes) and I'm at a restaurant, it always pays to excuse yourself, find the nearest drugstore and buy some medication. The sooner, the better. I've had to call in sick with some strange excuse over the past couple years when I ignored the initial symptoms to "deal with it in the morning." Now i carry a tiny little pill holder

I try and avoid stout beer, although stout is my favourite. Dude, the only thing young guys can do is preventative maintenance.

There's not a chance in hell I'm going to be vegetarian. There's a 0% chance I'm not gonna go out for drinks with friends. But for me, the sooner I take an anti-inflammatory, the better. I know that the pain will subside if i pop right away. The longer I wait to take it, the exponentially worse it gets the morning after…

Just two months ago I didn't take my own advice, and felt an imminent flare-up around 6pm when i was on my way to a dinner party. Didn't take a 'flammy until I got home around 1am. Horrible fucking mistake.
Gout lasted for a whole fucking week and couldn't walk without hopping on one foot for 4 days. I got my grandpa to FedEx me his Colchicine (he's 92 and had gout, but hasn't had a flare up in 20+ years because he swears by Colchicine).

Apple Cider vinegar, as recommended by these fine Gouty people, seems to help. Although I always drink the Apple cider vinegar in conjunction with the 'flammys. Take a couple swigs before bed and in the morning, can't hurt.

TL;DR Carry an anti-inflammatory with you, pop 'em as soon as you can. A keychain pill holder like this is an easy way to be safe

u/fib16 · 2 pointsr/iphone

I bought one of these to keep it on my keychain. Waterproof and I can store other things in there too. It's awesome.

I also am on several meds for BP and thyroid issues. I usually store away the few remaining pills when my Rx renews. So, for example, I have a 90 day Rx for my thyroid meds and the prescription renews and I have like 6 pill left. I put them in one of these and tuck it away in my safe.

I do the same with my other meds, and over time I stockpile 30+ days of backup supply for all of them. I then rotate them out as I get renewed prescriptions.

u/R3700L3R · 1 pointr/EDC

Nice idea. I would suggest whether it is Rx or not that they all be clearly labeled, so that you or someone else doesn't misidentify something and take it. I'll probably be adding something like this to my first aid kit soon. Or perhaps a set of those aluminium tube cases one for each type of pill so there is no cross contamination and to prevent a leak from ruining all the pills at once. Each individually colored and labeled.

u/GabbyMFJohnson · 1 pointr/mflb

I use these. each color is a different kind of trees and one is for AVB.

I just grind it up and use a funnel to fill them.

Each one holds a couple few trenches, but the reason I like them is you can just tap the sides and your herb just kinda falls into the trench.

You can find these anywhere that has pharmacy-like things. Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Grocery stores, etc.

u/save_the_runaway · 1 pointr/bipolar

From a bipolarbear to a loved one of a bipolarbear, if your nephew isn't in a place to say it himself: thank you. We have a way of alienating the people who care for us the most and a lot of us end up alone, ashamed of things we've said and done in the past with nowhere to go. The fact that you're willing to take him in is huge.

Now, part of what makes this decision huge is that it's probably not going to be a cakewalk. I think it's fine to require that he be compliant with treatment, but it's going to require some finessing on your end to make sure that things outside of his control don't get in the way of his compliance. Mental illness is tricky because it often operates on its own logic, and things that seem very simple or straightforward to you are quite complicated for someone whose decision-making capabilities are jeopardized by their brain chemistry.

Early on, "support" might mean that he needs help in his treatment compliance. Things like help scheduling and making appointments on time, picking up meds from the pharmacy, dosing them out into a daily meds organizer like this, reminders or help setting up a reminder system for taking meds, or perhaps even going with him to talk to his doctors about medication options that don't need to be taken daily, like monthly antipsychotic shots (yep, they can shoot you up with your meds so you don't have to remember taking them -- there are a lot of positives and negatives to this, so be open-minded).

When the mentally ill turn to substances as self-medication, consider this behavior as the desperation it is, rather than the disregard for others families tend to see it as. Substance addiction is tricky and really, really hard to kick, even with professional help. If your nephew is dealing with alcoholism, he has a long, uphill battle ahead of him and he's going to need your support and understanding more than ultimatums. Now, yes, it's your house, your rules, and your family's safety and sanity takes precedence, but when it comes to his substance use I urge you to measure any actions you take against the context of "Is this leading to positive results, or negative results?"

Let go of "should be" and "could be" when it comes to substance use. The things that drive people into substances have their own logic (which is why addiction ruins lives like it does), so tread softly. You're doing an incredibly generous, kind thing for your nephew that's going to require a lot of patience.

In that same vein, be proactive about recruiting outside help. Will he be in an outpatient group? Dual-diagnosis therapy (treatment designed to reach those who struggle both with mental illness and substance use)? Given the damage done to society by untreated mental illness and substance abuse, most regions have public health services and pro bono private services available. Get a support structure in place before your nephew even arrives so the pressure isn't all on you. If you do get to a point where he can't be in your home anymore, it will be easier for everyone involved if you've had a shit-hits-the-fan plan set up from the beginning.

Guns: Yep, off-site storage. You sound like you've got a good head on your shoulders and are a responsible firearms owner. It's an inconvenience, but follow your gut here and ensure that your nephew will have no opportunity to harm himself or anyone else with your pieces. The statistics on guns, the mentally ill, and avoidable accidents/suicides/tragedies just go to show that the two don't mix. When we're stable, being treated, and have spot-on crisis plans in place, even then gun ownership is dicey, but possible. But only after a great deal of time stable and a commitment to a solid treatment plan.

Finally, the thing that's going to help your loved one the most is knowing that you're there for him, you're doing to do everything you can to help him (especially when he has days or strings of days when his illness robs him of his ability to be the best version of himself), and that his illness isn't the most important thing about him. I encourage you to bond with him over common interests and help him relax and feel like part of the family (he might be struggling with feeling like an intruder, or waiting for the other shoe to drop and get kicked out). Make sure you recognize any steps he takes in a positive direction, and sympathize with him when he screws up, because bipolar is all about screwing up.

/r/bipolar is also an excellent place to get advice and feedback for anything that comes up, or to just shoot the shit and joke around when you need to, so stick around. We've got your back. Introduce your nephew, even? We're a bunch of weirdos but there's good people here. You're doing a good thing, so don't forget that. I wish you all the best.

I know it's kind of silly, but I've had friends who said it worked for them for taking certain types of medication and things. '

And a similar product from Colgate.

To make whatever you find keychain friendly, look for pill boxes or toothpick holders or "stash" holders (no link!!) that are keychains. You'll have to figure out what size each thing is and whether your brushy things will fit, but you should be able to find something that will work. You could put a shot of mouthwash into one of these cases.

I put my vitamins on the monitor stand next to my monitor at work so I remember to take them while I'm eating lunch, or right after lunch. But as a student, not sure that would work.

Could you get a small pill carry tube thing like this and put it onto your keychain and set a daily phone reminder to take your pill? If you get sublingual, you won't even need water around or food in your stomach.

My memory has always been pretty bad, so I rely on calendar reminders and phone alarms to get me to do a LOT of stuff. LOL.

Slip ups happen. It's ok. I'm glad for you that you were in your childhood community. A young man who grew up here recently had an episode on the street (not mental health related) and we all just felt sad and worried that this sweet boy we saw grow up was having a tough time. I'm sure your neighbors feel similarly. Like someone else said, keeping meds on your person and setting a phone alarm can help keep you healthy and on track. My family uses these
They have been a real lifesaver.

this has been decent to me, but others in the comments have had trouble (not many, less than 4% of people who bothered to leave a review)
i used some napkin or an earplug to keep them from banging around

This is behavior hacking! You need to (1) remove obstacles to success and (2) set up rewards and punishments for your behavior.

(1) Remove Obstacles

Stumbling Block: Too many bottles to open when I’m tired
On Sunday evenings, when my husband is ironing shirts and I’m going over my doctor’s appointments for the week in my calendar, I also put my pills in a weekly pill sorter. I had to try a few to find which one worked best for me.

Stumbling Block: Mid-day meds forgotten at home
Right now I’m on AM/PM only but when I had mid-day meds, I put them in a separate, smaller pill sorter that went into my purse since I am often out mid-day.

Stumbling Block: Don’t want to get out of bed to take meds in the kitchen/supplies were all over the place
My med bottles, heating pad, pain cream and other pain/injury stuff are in a 3-tier rolling cart from IKEA that is by my bedside. I try to keep the top tier clear except for my pill sorters, my take as needed meds and a few other small bits.

Stumbling Block: Started ignoring my alarms
I have phone alarms that have a loud and annoying ringtone to remind me to take my meds. I change it up every few months so I don’t get too used to it. It’s also a different sound than my wake up alarm and my other phone sounds. Some people do better setting a physical alarm clock that is harder to turn off or ignore.

(2) Rewards & Punishments

For awhile when I was struggling to take meds, I had a deal with my sister that I’d text her every am and pm with a picture of my empty pill sorter section that was time/date stamped.
(Note the removing obstacles here by fighting against my instinct for laziness. The check in was twice per day, required a photo and required a time stamp.)

I gave her an envelope with $25 bucks per week in it. If I missed an accountability picture text, I lost $5. If I was more than 30 minutes late with my meds, I lost $2.

At the end of each week, she’d tell me my balance and if I never missed a dose, she sometimes put in an extra $5 reward (Never asked her to do that. It was just her being awesome.)
At the end of the month, she’d send me the money in the mail since we live a few hours away. We could have done all this electronically, but physically sending her an envelope with $100 in it each month and physically getting that money back (or less money back) made it much more real to me.
I also got to reward myself with that money by paying for a massage or pedicure or a nice haircut/blowout.
If I didn’t have enough money for the reward I was working towards, I didn’t get to do it.

This worked super well for me until I got into a better natural rhythm. Now I do it for myself and my husband kind of checks in with me about it.

Here are some tools I’ve tried and liked:

AM/PM 7-Day Pill Sorter, long & flat - nicely sized, has push buttons instead of snaps that hurt fingers, good colors
AM/PM 7-Day Pill Sorter, removable rectangles - nice, large capacity, easy open, secure close, individual squares for each day of the week, 8th container for extra meds

Mid-Day/Travel Med Sorter, rectangle - nice size, secure, removable compartments for different pill sizes, up to 4 sections, nice colors
Mid-Day/Travel Pill Sorter (Round, 7 day) - east to load, easy to dispense, 7 sections, small and well-designed

Did You Take Your Pills? Tool - small card that has switches you can flip for each day and AM/PM to ensure you take meds
Time Since Last Dose Pill Bottle Caps - Of you forget when you last took your meds, check the color-coded caps to see how long it’s been since your last dose. Helpful if you take multiple times per day or struggle to remember if you’ve taken each med. several colors so you can mark multiple bottles.

Good luck OP!

u/Kris10NC · 1 pointr/ADHD

Going to throw in pill bottle timers too! I use them for my sleeping pills since a side effect of taking them is forgetting things! ;)

u/BananaMuscle · 1 pointr/Steroidsourcetalk

Peep it:

I was buying SARMs off a seller who offered really nice pressed pills that were teeny-tiny and I basically needed this.

ANECDOTAL REVIEW: I have an extremely sharp kitchen knife (from the Wüsthof Classic Ikon line) that I thought would be ideal for cutting pills, but the pill cutter is slightly superior (although not perfect, still get mild crumbles, I think this is likely unavoidable).

u/skeptwit · 1 pointr/tressless

I got mine on holiday in Hong Kong for $20. Can't find an exact replica on sale here but this one looks pretty solid

u/yji9191 · 1 pointr/tressless

This one has been working really well for me -

The only painful part is placing the already small 1mg pills on the base of this pill cutter before cutting them otherwise I would highly recommend this

u/Sam0x007fff · 1 pointr/TransDIY

Haven't started yet but I intend to. this is a good pill cutter if you need one (not the cheapest but the cut is clean and you can do a bunch at once).

u/philtrem · 1 pointr/modafinil

this should work fine:

I haven't used it but it seems to me it's the best pill cutter available, although not necessarily efficient. They have videos on youtube.

u/ProfessorDrNoob · 1 pointr/Steroidsourcetalk

Veeeery carefully. I got this new pill splitter that works really well at splitting unscored pills. Doesnt use a razor blade, just shears them in half with force.

u/seacretthrowaway · 1 pointr/steroidsxx

I appreciate that, is it this one? I think your post might have been hit by autocorrect since equators pill splitter yields nothing by my search lol

u/rahmenhoodies · 1 pointr/tressless is the best. I just got it after havin the same problem and it cuts the tiny, rectangular pill into quarters no problem.

u/unsemble · 1 pointr/benzorecovery

Try reinstating at 0.125mg, hold that for a few weeks, then drop.


This is a good pill splitter, it's expensive but better than buying 3 shitty ones that don't work.

Sagely Smart Weekly Pill Organizer - Sleek AM/PM Twice a Day Pill Box with 7 Day Travel Containers and Reminder App (Large Enough to Fit Fish Oil and

u/AlexTakeTwo · 1 pointr/Fibromyalgia

It only has two slots, but I really like this case due to the volume it holds. I take my pills in really only two main times anyway (morning and lunch) but a lot of them are LARGE pills, so this holds them all really well. I waffled for a while because the cost on it is crazy, but I've had it for a year and its been great. I also like that the days come off individually, so you can re-arrange them, or take just a day or two with you when going somewhere. It's easy to load, and then I dump the relevant pills into a cute little dish each day to take them.

Then I use a regular small, 7-section pill holder for my bedtime pills that was one I rejected for my main daily pill holder because it was too small for everything.

u/-jp- · 1 pointr/Anxiety

You might get a pill-minder and leave it with your phone and keys and such that you pick up every day.

Glad to hear you're feeling better though. Good luck to you!

u/gigglepunch · 1 pointr/ADHD

I was thinking of getting one of those Monday through Friday pill boxes. Something like this.

They sell them at walmart or probably the dollar store.

If the box is empty, you took it.

u/Hugo154 · 1 pointr/ADHD

This already exists, the company is called PillPack and Amazon bought them out last year. Many independent pharmacies will also do this for their patients if you ask. But realistically it's only necessary for people who have a bunch of different meds and aren't able to handle them all themselves. Most of us can just buy our own pill box (here's one for $8 on Amazon) and do it ourselves - and if any of you don't do this, you should!

u/TrustyChords · 0 pointsr/kratom

I personally prefer to use oblate bags.

I put about 4 grams in each and down them kind of like raw oysters. It's not for everyone but works better than T&W for me.

u/dori_88 · 0 pointsr/opiates

It's likely infected or something if it's causing you that much trouble. Go to the dentist. Be upfront about your abuse history. Tell them you do except to be treated humanely and have a plan to take painkillers as prescribed. For instance, with my spinal surgery back in September, I used these timer caps, to take my meds as prescribed. It helped a lot.
