Rx Timer - Simple Yet Ingenious!

So, with a child with a chronic illness you can imagine that there are a lot of pill bottles around here.  I feel like we are constantly trying to track and make sure we've taken all the meds and at the proper time.  Yes, it can get a little overwhelming at times.

Enter the Rx Timer!  What an incredible, yet simple idea!  It is actually a cap that goes on your medication bottle that has a timer on it.  It lets you know how long it's been since you last took your meds.  It works like a stop watch, counting down since the last time you opened your pill bottle.

Rx Timer Cap® activation is automatic and foolproof since there are no alarms to program, no buttons to press and no instructions to read. Unlike medication reminders and medication alerts, which require programming, the mere act of opening and closing the container resets the automatic patented pill timer.

  • The World Health Organization found that less than 50% of patients take their medications as directed.
  • Failure to take meds as directed costs 125,000 lives each year and close to $300 billion in increased healthcare costs.
  • Studies proved that using the RX Timer Cap lifted adherence by as much as 34%
See!  Incredible, yet simple!
They are offered in lots of different sizes and types to fit almost any pill bottle.  You just remove your regular lid and replace it with the Rx Timer Cap!

This has made such an improvement around here!  I just need to glance at the top of the bottle to let me know if my daughter took her meds.  This would be wonderful for anyone, but especially those with young kids, or helping your parents or the elderly.
You can purchase these at a lot of pharmacies or sometimes they are offered on auto-fill programs.  You can check your local pharmacy or you can purchase them directly from the website at

Would you like to win one of your own?!  One lucky reader can win their own Rx Timer Cap!
