Multi-dose Packaging

What is multi-dose adherence packaging?

Multidose packaging, also known as pill organizer packaging or dose packaging, is a convenient way to organize multiple medications into individual doses. Our pharmacists can package your medications into pre-sorted, clearly labeled packs that indicate the date and time of each dose. This makes it easy to keep track of which medications to take and when, reducing the risk of missed doses or medication errors.Multi-dose adherence packaging is typically used for solid, oral medications like tablets and capsules. It comes in two forms:

  • Blister packaging: doses of medication are placed in a sheet of plastic bubbles or cups sealed with plastic, paper, or foil.
  • Pouch packaging: doses of medication are sealed in small plastic pouches, which are connected in a long strip.

Instead of receiving pill bottles or boxes of blister-packed tablets from the pharmacy and sorting them into a pillbox, patients receive all of their medications packaged together. 

To take their medications, the patient just needs to tear off the appropriate pack or pouch for that day and time. All of their pills – including over-the-counter vitamins, supplements, or NSAIDs – are already sorted for them. 

The patient’s prescriptions are organized by time of day and dose in a perforated blister pack sheet or in a perforated strip of pouches. In some cases this is done manually by a pharmacist. In other cases, special computerized machinery automatically sorts and seals the medications. Either way, the sorted medications are checked by a pharmacist for accuracy.

Which patients benefit from multi-dose packaging?

Generally, multiple-dose packaging is best for patients who take several medications multiple times a day. It’s good for older adults who may lack the dexterity or vision to sort small pills into a pillbox (though some hand dexterity is still needed to tear open the pouch or remove the seal on a blister). 

It’s also useful for caregivers. In fact, multi-dose packaging is used extensively in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to ensure residents get their medications at the right time.
