Managing dispensed (generic) medications safely

Those kinds of packs are fantastic and commonly used in aged care. For an individual the main gotcha is when you have some meds with 30 days supplies and some with 28 days. It gets a bit tedious for a pharmacy to keep the packs and scripts in synch, especially if there are not ‘scripts in waiting’ during the last month when they are out of synch.

Yet another reason it should be but is not mandated that all long term meds are supplied in a common month, be it 28 days or 30 days. Does that make it impossible to use packs? Not at all, but it makes it harder and more tedious than it should and could dissuade providers or have extra costs.
