Mom has dementia, she forgets to eat lunch, she feeds her kitties nine times per day, but she never forgets her pills.

Got rid of Mom's old pillbox. It just wasn't working. She said she never forgot, but was forgetting all the time. A life saver

This really works good. We had starting to look into Assisted Living. With Med-Q Mom is still in her own apartment


Ask your Health Care Professional about the MED-Q Take their advice take control of medication errors

Caregivers can tell you about the MED-Q. Smart technology to reduce the stress, worry and wondering

I believe Grandpa's Med-Q’s made it so he was at his Great-Grandson's B-Day Party. Best Pill dispenser ever.

Med-Q Smart Pill Box Reminder for Dad's Medication

Dad was a mess, After we lost Mom. He relied on her 100%. Problem, couldn't keep track of the days. He was messing-up a lot. Med-Q's kept him at home

MED-Q Timer Pill Box for the Caregiver

Dad lives with us. The problem,not taking his pills when we were at work. Not any more with your smart pill box

This has been great for my Mom. I believe it is keeping her at home. I wish we had this for our Dad. Great product.

pill dispensing machine for elderly

Mom lives almost 300 miles away. This has been a Godsend for us.

I got One for my Mom and One for my Dad. It makes it easier on them and my sisters. No more phone calls.

This has really worked great for my Dad. After his heart surgery, he had to take meds 2 times a day for his stints. Perfect!!

pill box alarm

Mom was missing 3-4 pills a week. I filled her old box, but it wasn't working. This pill box does it for her

The whole family helps with Grandma. This gives us one less thing that we worry about. Has helped us a lot.

pill dispenser testimonials

This is excellent. My Dad is 91 and still at home. He is almost deaf, so the flashing box helps him a lot.

All I can say is "Thank you Very Much"!

MED-Q is keeping her out of assisted living. We still have someone come by once a week to help. The pill box works great.

prevention of disease and disability

This has made a real impact in our Dad’s life. He is doing great with his diabetes medication. Best thing we ever bought

I use it for my Blood Pressure & Cholesterol Pills. Really easy to use

Really works good...thanks....

My wife got it for me. I like that the alarm repeats.

Dad has been using it for over a year now.

Best ever at keeping patients on track with taking medications

By Susan 

Best device ever! As a nurse I couldn’t get my mom to take her meds, with this device she rarely misses a dose now. Easy for her to use at age 80, she just has one button to push to reset for her next dose.   Save us over $300 per month not having the assisted living facility have to give her meds and now she feels more independent and doing better because she is taking her meds routine.y

Looks like this has resolved the problem
By Gary G. Nicholson

Purchased this for an elderly aunt that was having trouble keeping up with her meds with a regular pill box. Looks like this has resolved the problem.

Did I take my meds this morning? Did I forget to take last night's? What day of the week is it anyway? I have had this Med-Q digital pill box for two months and I can answer those questions with certainty. With this box I know exactly when I've taken what dose, at what time and on what day.  Set the alarm for each box. Granted it took me several frustrating minutes to get all the alarms set the first time. Once done it is easy to refill the boxes without having to reset. When the alarm beeps the appropriate box brightly flashes at the same time and continues until you push the button on top to set the alarm for the next dose. I found that after emptying the box and pushing the "next alert" button the sound stops but the light still flashes a few second giving me time to verify which box I took the pills from.

This device can be set up for two weeks of single days or one week for two times a day. I take AM and PM meds so it is set up for 1 week, twice a day. If you need to take more than twice a day, I recommend you get two and set them up accordingly. You will be glad you did. 
I have had a stroke and the sigh of relief from my caregiver when she sets me up and closes the last lid knowing that for this week I won't take too many of something or not take enough is well worth the cost. Oh, and that alarm? It will beep loudly for several minutes and if I don't respond it will hush for a few minutes...then beep and flash again until I do. So even if I am not available for a while I will be reminded as soon as I am.  I am so glad for this product. Thank You Med-Q!

Outstanding Product!!!
Outstanding, I bought directly from Med-Q. I take serious (heart meds) twice a day, and it really works for me. I  take about 10 different meds twice a day and quite honestly I find the Med-Q essential in my life!!!

Helped my mom
I bought this to help my mom remember to take her pills. She had been using simple weekly pillboxes and was not taking her pills every day. It took a few minutes to set up (the hardest part is that if you wait too long to set a value in the setup, it quits and you have to start over). My mom has been using this now for 2 weeks, and even though it's not that long, she hasn't missed any of her pills in those 2 weeks!!! That's what I needed to help her remember - I would recommend this to anyone who has someone that needs to be reminded about their medication. This will help my mom keep her independence for a while longer.

Thank you so much for this excellent product which will help organize an often confusing task ...
This alarm/light pill box that you can program is a Godsend!! I have been waiting for someone to produce this for ages -- this will help so many people keep track of their medicine and you don't even need to know what day it is at the correct one lights up 🙂 Thank you so much for this excellent product which will help organize an often confusing task to many people who have chronic illness and have a hard time staying on track with their prescription medication.

My Mom is suffering from the beginnings of Alzheimer's and getting her to remember to take her pills each day was a headache for her (she hated feeling like she was nagged about it) and me (I hated nagging). Now, this amazing pill box does the "nagging" for us and my Mom laughs every time it "beeps and flashes" at her. But, since we've had it, she hasn't missed a day of pills! It IS, as others have mentioned, a bit tricky to get set up but once it's up and running, it's great.

The only other thing we did was to tape simple, explicit instructions to the bottom of it (coming out for the bottom so the pill box sits on top of the instructions) about how to turn it off (we acutally said "#1 - Take your pills. # 2 - Hit the Next Alarm button once to turn off) and we taped over everything but the "Next Alarm" button (otherwise it was a bit confusing for her). I totally recommend this for anyone with "forgetful" loved ones. Best money I ever spent!

This was just what we needed.We were looking for a lockout product but were not happy with those (price, size, requirement to be plugged in, requirement for a phone line connection or wifi), so tried this and found it was great. Here are key features that work for us:

1. Not super industrial looking and no cord to plug it. It can sit on the kitchen table and not take up lots of space or look like a big bingo machine! And it is blue - which she likes!

2. The flashing red light really helps. My mom has not taken the wrong meds or missed a dose in the two months we have had. She has no vision in one eye and low in the other.

3. The alarm every 30 minutes works well. If she misses it, it just keeps on alerting every 30 minutes until she respond

Just what he needed!
By jachary

I bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift. He is diabetic and takes some other meds both in the morning and evening. He works from home, and would often get busy and forget to take his pills. Now, he has the dispenser set and it beeps loudly enough that he can hear it from his office! The timers also assure he takes the medication at regular intervals. It's small enough, and with the handy tote that came with it, we can take it when we travel. A great device and well worth the price!!!

The perfect pill dispenser
By Hazel

The perfect pill dispenser! Bought this for my mother, who had trouble remembering which day of the week it was. Can be set for medication taken once a day or twice a day. The pill box for the appropriate day lights up in red & the dispenser beeps until the pills are taken. Turning off the "beep" automatically sets the dispenser for the next scheduled time. As my mother is easily confused, once I set the schedule, I covered that portion of the unit's buttons with paper & tape so that the only button exposed was the one she needed to press to turn off the "beep". Setting the time/date schedule is a little tricky as you only have a few seconds to move from date to time to day of week, etc. If you hesitate, the unit goes back to default & you have to start all over again. Would suggest watching one of the Med Q pill dispenser videos on You Tube to help walk you through the scheduling set up. Once the schedule is set, this product can't be beat.

With Med-Q I can do it myself.
By Cartnem
I don't know why there are no other reviews for this product because I have lived with mine for 3 YEARS. After a stroke, remembering to take my meds is difficult. I have a pile of useless pill organizers that did nothing to remind me when to take my med. Until I found Med-Q digital bill box. I need meds twice a day. That means I had to pay attention to the clock 14 times a week. Med-Q beeps and blinks on the appropriate box at the times I set once...until I want to change it or shut it off. Even when I'm not home on time the box will beep again to remind me.
My b-i-l has diabetes and doesn't remember to take his meds on time. He will now!
Now, it can't help with dementia illness. Someone reliable has to set the alarms and fill the boxes and someone must know what the beeps are about. But for me, as a stroke survivor I don't need a caregiver to come to give me my pills. If (when) this box eventually wears out you can be assured that I will buy another

Makes me feel better too. Thank

Sent this to my dad who is having trouble remembering when to take what. Mom says it has taken the pressure off them both as it will keep reminding until it has been addressed. Makes me feel better too. Thank you

the dispenser works good and is fairly easy to set up but would be better if it had an on and off switch so i wouldn't have to reset it if we were going away and have to take out the batteries to stop the alarm

the best
it's light and simple, it's easy for mom to understand and it doesn't shut up until she takes her meds :))  and for me, if we have to take the meds to go, the small containers are easily put in our purse.
thank you!!

Great product for older people who can't remember to take their medications!
This product is great for older people who forget to take their medicine. The appropriate pill container lights up to show the person which pill should be taken at a certain time. Once the person takes to pill, he presses the "Next" button to tell the pill dispenser he has taken the pill and it stops buzzing and blinking. If the pills aren't taken the buzzer will go off over and over until they are taken. We used the cheap pill dispensers without the buzzer and blinker for a long time, but my mother-in-law would miss at least three or four doses every week. With this system she rarely misses any doses and take them at the correct time. The product is well made and we haven't hand any problems with it.
