How it works

  1.  Hear the buzzer

  2. Turn the dispenser upside down to release the pills in your hand.

  3. Take your meds

The Dispenser has 28 slots that can be loaded with medication, and can be dispensed up to four pre-set times each day. At the specified time, the pill dispenser rotates to the next available slot, beeps loudly, and the light located on the lid flashes.
