Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro It's a good option for a fair price
While there are newer and more sophisticated pill dispensers out there, the Med-e-lert still offers one of the best deals for the money. It has an alarm and a lock, which makes it suitable for giving pills to seniors. It's reliable, straightforward to fill and to use, and it only costs around $80, while high-tech dispensers usually go for several hundreds of dollars.
Pro It's great for forgetful people
This dispenser can be programmed to sound an alarm when the patient is scheduled to take his or her pills. It will keep going for 30 minutes or until the dispenser is flipped over to take out the pill. If the pill wasn't taken with the alarm, it will be kept safely inside.
Con It's quite dated
This is a reliable device to be sure, but much more convenient models have been released in recent years: smart pill dispensers with smartphone notifications for if someone didn't take their pill or when you're running low on medication.
