The Med-Q Pillbox is a 7-day a.m./p.m. organizer with audible and flashing light alarms to draw attention to dosage timing.

From the website: "The Med-Q programmable Pill Box with triple alarms makes pill time simple. Seniors use the simplicity of the Pill Reminder flashing light box to guide them to the right pills. The escalating audio alarms make sure the meds are taken at the right time."


Recommendations from Longevity Explorers

This product was included in our explorer community discussions about pill boxes. See the Pill Boxes & Pill Organizers the Longevity Explorers recommend.


Our explorers thought this product was pretty interesting.

The good things:

  • It has individual compartments you can take out and take with you when you leave for a day trip, which seemed a really good feature.
  • It flashes and makes noises to alert you.
  • It works pretty well as a 7 day pill box with a built in alarm (2 doses / day).

The bad things:

  • It was surprisingly heavy.
  • It was very tricky to figure out how to program it.
  • It was rather ugly.

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the product or access the resource.

The criteria for adding products and resources to this database is that we think they "look useful, noteworthy, and interesting", and have the potential to improve life for older adults and their families. We have evaluated some of these products, in which case you will see links to a detailed review and or to explorer discussions about the product on this page, or inputs from explorers in the comments.

If the listing does not include reviews or explorer discussions, then we have not evaluated it sufficiently to be able to recommend it or comment on how well it works. If you research this product or resource further, and especially if you try it out, please come back to this page and add your comments.
