There are many different uses for blister packing, but one of the most commonly seen is medication. Blister packs are used for both prescription and over-the-counter medications. With the pre-formed pockets, blister packs are a cost-effective solution. Additional benefits of blister packs for medication include:
- Preserving Medication Quality
Blister packs allow pills to retain their quality because they are isolated in their own individual pocket instead of rubbing against each other in a bottle.
- Easy Medicine Recognition
Clear blister packaging makes it easy for people to see their medications. This makes it easier for users to take the right medication at the right time.
- Easy Handling and Opening
Compared to traditional child-proof prescription bottles, blister packs are easy to open. Individuals who have reduced mobility in their joints find that blister packs are easier for them to open.
- Easy Pill Storage
When it is necessary to store medications in a discreet location, blister packs are easier to hide and take up less space overall. Medication blister packs usually come in either a single card or a single-fold booklet.
- Easy Medicine Transport
Many people purchase small, travel medication boxes so they can transport a small amount of medication with them instead of the whole supply. Depending on the medication, some blister cards feature perforations that allow you to carry small doses.
For these reasons and others, blister packing is a practical solution for packaging prescriptions. SouthPack has the ability to create blister packs that can be used for a variety of different medications to ensure that every consumer gets the dosage they need, when they need it.
