The packaging makes it impossible for seniors to open using just your hands. Who ever designed the sealed packaging needs to be replaced.

The product worked very well for me. Took 2 after the 1st loose bowel movement and had no more pain, bloating, gas or loose stool. I only gave the product 3 stars because I almost spoiled myself trying to free the capsule from its packaging. I've heard of child proofing, but this is PEOPLE PROOFING. Additionally, the lettering in the 'Direction' section is much too small. Perhaps that section should be isolated and printed on the inside of the box in bigger font in an area that is least likely to be hastily torn off when the bos is opened. That way, you wouldn’t have to enlarge the packaging. I’m not surprised to see all the similar reviews, I am dismayed that there seems to be no attempt to address this problematic packaging. Thanks for reading to the end.

Effective immediately, I will quit purchasing immodium due to the ridiculous packaging of the caplets. I don't know who designed and approved this, but as an engineer I can tell you they do not have to attempt to open one of pieces of junk. My last purchase was the straw that broke the camels back. We did a test run of opening all of the pack in one setting. It took a pair of scissors, a box blade, and 42 minutes to free 24 caplets. REALLY BAD!!!

I know how to open the pill packet but it is still WAY to hard. With this many review about hard hard people have with getting to this pill you would think it would have been changed by now.

Yeah, I've been taking your product for years. Works like magic, but as everyone else writes it's extremely difficult to get the pills out of the packaging. Question: are the NEW soft gels available in every state since I haven't seen them on the market here in Pittsburgh. Please let me know.

I use the generic. Cheaper, but more importantly easier to get to. The Imodium packaging is horrible. Takes 5 minutes even with sissors to get a pill out. Don’t tell me to call which is your standard answer. Just fix it or continue to lose business. It’s a shame because product contains an ingredient that makes it superior to generic, but just not worth the hassle. If you don’t want to take action, why ask for feed back.

I purchased a bottle of the caplets and after using this product, I was noticing that they had an aftertaste of vanilla . Is this normal?
