Monitored Dosage System (Blister Pack)
A Monitored Dosage System is designed to assist persons who find it difficult to keep track of their medications and who sometimes forget to take the medication as prescribed. The system consists of a weekly set of medications, which is blister packed for different times of the day as appropriate. The patient can receive the full monthly prescription packed in four blistered cards or the medication can be dispensed weekly, according to the wishes of the doctor.
