Idea: Advice a medicine box

For people that have to take several types of drugs every day, a medicine box can be a big help. The box should be filled correctly once a week, so that patients do not have to calculate or think about the correct intake of their drugs during the rest of the week. Medicine boxes are available in different sizes for large and small tablets; with space for a week or a day; or a design to use during travelling. Patients can buy them at their local pharmacist.
