To make remembering my meds a little easier, I always carry a pill case with my daytime medication (Wellbutrin). While in Chicago last year we went to the Museum of Contemporary Art Store and I found this adorable metal pill case that looks like, and opens like, a capsule. It's small, about a couple of inches long and easy to throw in a purse or a backpack. I don't see this pillbox on the MCA Store website, but do see it on the Exit9 website, under "capsule pill container".
Even with the pill box, I still sometimes manage to miss my day meds, because I don't take the pill as soon an I remember and eventually forget again. But the case certainly does help me more often take my medication as directed.
