Best Medication Reminders and Pill Dispensers 2020

Saturday, 11 January 2020  |  Eugene

We all know that taking the pills you need when you need them is important to maintaining your health, but this can often be easier said than done. Life can sometimes get in the way, leading to you to take your pills late in the day, or miss out a cycle entirely. This is a obviously dangerous pattern, and if that describes your pill-taking routine, you may be in need of a medication reminder or timed pill dispenser. 

Medication reminders and pill dispensers

Do I Need a Medication Reminder?

Medication reminders and pill dispensers will remind you to take your medication on time, and can even help you organise your pills to avoid mix-ups. It's important for everyone to take the medication they need on time, but for some people this is especially important. You could benefit from a medication reminder or pill dispenser if you:

  • Need to take multiple pills at specific times of the day
  • Often find yourself taking pills late or missing out medication cycles
  • Suffer from memory loss, dementia or age-related memory issues
  • Sometimes find yourself mixing up your pills or medication schedule

These are all warning signs that leave yourself open to a serious issue that a medication reminder could help solve. In this article, we've had our product experts break down their favourite pill reminders, focusing on those that have received plenty of positive customer feedback. We'll go over the main benefits of each, along with why we believe it sets itself apart from competition.

Best Daily Medication Reminder

Tabtime Super 8 Daily Pill Reminder

Tabtime Super 8 Daily Pill ReminderPill reminders can often be difficult to hear for elderly users, and won't include enough space for all your pills – the Tabtime Super 8 Daily Pill Reminder was designed to solve these problems. It's designed to be easy to use for everyone, and features an easy-open magnetic hatch that's ideal for those with weak, shaky hands or Parkinson's disease. With a loud audio alarm, flashing red LED light and large, spaced-out buttons, this reminder is as easy-to-use as can be.

Key Features: Loud alarm with flashing light ensure it's heard; easy opening to suit all users


Portable and Simple Medication Reminder

Tab Timer Pill Alarm Reminder

Tab Timer Pill Alarm ReminderMany people won't require an advanced pill dispenser, but instead need a simple and reliable reminder. The Tab Timer Pill Alarm Reminder is just that, providing a compact, convenient and simple reminder that can sound up to eight daily alarms based on your needs. It's small design allows it to fit into any pocket or purse, and it can be hung, stood or stuck just about anywhere for your convenience.

Key Features: Designed for maximum simplicity; able to set up to eight loud alarms with a visual alert


Lockable Pill Dispenser for Dementia Sufferers

PivoTell MK3 Automatic Pill Dispenser

PivoTell MK3 Automatic Pill Dispenser for Dementia SufferersWhen a loved one is suffering from dementia, it's not only important to ensure they take their medication on time, it's also crucial to make sure they don't take too much. The PivoTell MK3 Automatic Pill Dispenser can be programmed to provide up to 28 reminders each day, notifying the user via a flashing light and audible alarm. It keeps all other pills locked away and out of sight – ideal for users suffering from conditions where overdosing may be a concern.

Key Features: Secure and lockable with 28 compartments; ideal for dementia, depression and high-risk patients


Best Medication Reminder Watch

Vibralite Mini Vibrating Reminder Watch

Pivotell Vibratime Vibrating Reminder WatchMany pill reminders and dispensers use a loud alert to notify their users, falling short for the hearing impaired. The Pivotell Vibratime Vibrating Reminder Watch is a sleek and stylish alternative, providing a discreet vibrating reminder to the wrist of the wearer to ensure they're reminded anytime, anywhere. Displaying time in between alerts, this smart reminder watch will look at home on the wrist of just about any user.

Key Features: Issues a powerful vibrating reminder; can be set for up to eight reminders per day


Best Dementia Memory Aid Bundle

Dementia Memory Aid Kit (Reminder Watch and Alarm Combo)

Reminder kit including a Vibratime Watch and Memrabel Dementia ClockWhile a medication reminder alone will suffice for some, we've found that furnishing a dementia sufferer's home with helpful aids can be a powerful strategy for ensuring safety. Our Dementia Memory Aid Kit includes two of our best memory-aiding products: the Pivotell Vibratime Watch and the Memrabel 2 Dementia Clock. The Memrabel 2 adds to the Vibratime's qualities, issuing reminders of key points of the day with personalised or pre-set photos, audio and video queses to provide a powerful memory boost.

Key Features: Includes two of our best memory-aiding products; provides a comprehensive memory boost for dementia sufferers

Medicate Like Clockwork

Whatever your reason, medication timer reminders and pill dispensers are always a good idea to have on hand when medication must be taken at certain times throughout the day. Ensuring you or your loved one gets the medication they need when they need it isn't worth taking chances with, so it's worth taking some time to figure out which reminder is right for you.
