Gear: A pretty pill case makes having to carry meds a little easier to swallow
If you take medications and rely on those ugly seven-day med holders (the ones with SMTWTFS stamped across the snap-open compartments), aesthetic help is at hand.
A company called Inspired by Dawn has found a lovely way to dress up those dowdy pill holders. The Style Rx 7-Day Designer Pill Box Case looks like a slim rectangular jewelry case, but it houses (and hides) an included plastic seven-day pill holder (yes, with SMTWTFS).
Covered in cheerfully patterned cotton canvas, with a perky pink lining, the flip-open top has a magnetic closure that keeps pills secure inside.
The 6-inch-long Style Rx Pill Box comes in two patterns—a fireworks-like lime, pink and white design, and a navy and white flower motif. The seven-day pill insert is removable, so you can switch out a depleted one with a fully stocked replacement (sold separately).
The individual compartments are a bit snug for my full complement of mammoth multi-vitamin tablets, flax capsules, and other meds, but those with fewer (or more diminutive) pills should have room enough.
Info: Style Rx 7-Day Designer Pill Box Case, from Inspired by Dawn, is $34; set of two, $59, additional plastic pill holder insert, $5.
