When you’ve been sick, or have an ongoing illness, little things in life seem to matter more. Like, waking up on time and not feeling awful. Or, the color, style, and size of all those prescription bottles laying around.
(Not really… I’m more organized than to have things laying around the house).
But I do wonder: as I accrue old bottles and get new bottles, it would be neater if they looked a little nicer. So, which pharmacy has the best prescription bottles?
Which Pharmacy Has the Best Prescription Bottles?
To me, best means:
- Easy to identify what it is
- Easy to identify whose it is
- Looks neat
- Is easy to open
I’ve been filling my prescriptions at Walgreens lately. And while I love their availability at all hours, and that you can fill any prescription at any Walgreens (AKA that time we had an impromptu overnight in Bristow, VA), their bottles are annoying. They’re the traditional prescription orange and the label has tons of info on it that I don’t need, making it harder to read the name of the patient and the name of the drug.
Target’s prescription bottles, on he other hand, are bright red. They’re shaped more narrow, and the formatting of the text and information makes it really easy to read. You can also get fun colors for each family member (a yellow band for JHubbs, a blue band for me, etc).
This almost makes me want to switch back to Target, but I’m weighing the pros and cons.
Which pharmacy do you think has the best prescription bottles?
