This might not be one of the top problems in modern civilisation, but I now have 2 ongoing scripts. Inexplicably one is packaged in 30’s meaning in each 365 days there are 12 scripts for 360 tablets. Close enough, and go to the chemist once a month.
The second is packaged in 28’s, for 13 boxes p.a. for 364 days. OK, technically a visit to the chemist every 2 fortnights.
Since I need new scripts annually there is an annual resynch, but.
It makes no sense that different medications that are always prescribed for long term treatment would come in different quantities, but here I am. As the year gets old it is just a chat with the chemist explaining why I want two refills of one or the other a bit early to keep my supply and it is not a problem, but why?
The 28’s is packaged with 4 of these cards. Seems putting 10 on a card would not be a worry. Without saying, the box is commensurately larger than necessary too. One might argue the 28’s are more conducive to keeping track, but then why the 30’s where the same argument should hold?
30’s make sense, 28’s make sense, but 30’s and 28’s make no sense. Why can’t the quantities be standardised, especially since they are ‘forever’ meds?
