Your caplets work well enough, but I need tools to get to them! The packaging is so rigid and "sturdy" that I need scissors to break into it. And that's not always possible (I used to carry manicure scissors in my purse, but TSA took them away from me before they'd let me on an airplane.) So how about a little consideration for seniors with arthritis?

Cannot open packages

Review Questions: 
State: California
Review Text: 
The pill may be effective, but we will never know because we cannot open the package. Even with scissors, the package cannot be easily opened. This is almost fraudulent marketing because it is impossible to use the pills! One would think you would want us to use many, but there is no way. This is more than child resistant, it is gorilla resistance. Please have anyone on the J&J Board try to open just one pill!

While Imodium is a great product, and when I can, I do buy it in the bottles of 42, however, I still have need occasionally to use the blister packs. I find them nearly IMPOSSIBLE to open - especially when in a hurry, which is usually the case! Isn't there another way to package them so when a senior citizen like me needs one, they don't have to ask for help? Since I have IBS-D, I take one every night before bed. The bottles are not easy to find, and most stores only carry the blister packs.

Please put it back in the bottle. I’m a senior and can’t get it out unless my daughter cuts it out. Please. Can I order the bottles on line?

Who the heck designed the packaging for this? Terrible! Product works well if you can ever open the blister pack! I'll be looking for a different product to save myself the aggravation.

If there’s any medicine that should be EASY to open it is diarrhea medicine. I had to stop buying your medicine because I can’t alwys carry a pair of scissors or a knife with me to open your packaging. What a shame. The medicine works if only I could open it.

Love the product, hate the packaging. Please don't tell me to call you, I would think there have been enough reviews here complaining about how hard it to open that maybe somebody would take notice and do something about it.

Packaging makes it nearly impossible to get to the caplets without some sort of sharp device. I had to use scissors and in the process, damaged the caplets. Not user friendly at all. Makes me switch to other products that do not require an engineering degree to open. BYW, the cut notch does not make it any easier to open.
