My mom is 88 yrs old she can never open a pill to take it, when ever I go there I see she is not taking her iron pill, reason she cannot open the packaging, she gets them by madicare so she only alowed to get major ferosul. I tried helping her but they are even hard for me, my both thum nails are bleeding , from popping these pills. It would be better if these pills can be evalable in pill containers, better packaging so they are easy to peel them out .
I have to agree with you, but I'll give you a hint, one nurses use all the time, we don't have time to argue with the damn things. Take a ball point pen, poke holes like perforation around the pill on the paper side, and you can pop the pill right out. Get a pill box for a weeks worth of pills and put one in each for your Mom.
