Question: So, what exactly is a Medication Blister Pack?
Answer: A Medication Blister Pack is a card that packages doses of medication within small, clear, or light-resistant amber-colored plastic bubbles (or blisters). Each pack is secured by a strong, paper-backed foil that protects the pills until dispensed. When it’s time to take a dose of medication, the caregiver or patient simply pushes a blister of pills through the foil backing to distribute an accurate dose effortlessly.
