Discussion Summary

Commonwealth Explorers explore pill organizers and discuss medication management techniques. Group members explain how they manage their medications, including what doesn't work as well as what does.

For travelers, a screw cap container seems best to keep pills from migrating into luggage. Most Explorers find the usual AM/PM weekly containers completely satisfactory, but some were taken with the metal screw-cap containers in various colors.

Back-up meds are recommended for travel in case a set is lost with luggage. Most agree that their med management gadgets are adequate for them with no urgent need for something more.
