My wife and I have used Imodium for decades. The initial packaging was a bit of a pain to open and we cheered when the pills were offered in a small, plastic bottle. Finally used up the last of the bottle and went to buy another and could only find the old style package but even more difficult to open than before. Love the Imodium but it doesn't do me any good unless I can get it out of the package. We are both in our 70's and opening the current package is just too much of a hassle. And no, we do not carry a pair of scissors in the car. I hate to say it but we will be looking for more patient friendly packaging even if it means going to a generic. Based on several other reviews I see I am not the only one with this complaint.

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!

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.

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.

Product great, but have to find someone to remove each pill from the package. Your bubble packs stink and I am looking for another brand to replace Imodium with. I am 77 years old and simply cannot get the little white pills out of the bubble. Arnold S, Texas

Works for diarrhea. About the packaging. It is not perfect but for those having problems just bend back a square area to select a caplet. Then bend back and forth a few times on the dotted line as mentioned on the backside. I first used scissors and used to cut all around the caplet. Once I used this technique found I could easily remove the caplet without scissors. I still would like to know why you use this strange packaging though.

The tear here is impossible. I have to use scissors to cut down to the tablet to get it out! NOW I remember that I bought this once before and gave up on opening the package and threw them away.

I have used this for about t3 yrs & love it. I HATE this packaging. It is all but impossible to get the caplet out. Can’t carry the liquid with me so am forced to find another procuct. Shame on you for making it hard to get the pill out . The other style was bad enough but this little cut is not going to open if you don’t have scissors.
