There is no doubt that the medicine is very effective....but first you have to reach it!...i am sure that engineers were involved in the design of the packaging, they produced a very human unfriendly solution, I have read many reviews, some from elderly or disabled people, I do not belong to either group, but had to use my engineering background to figure out what that small line on the pack meant...it really did not mean anything! I design packaging for various items in manufacturing, with the aim of making the item accessible and secure from a damage point of view. You have remained complacent about the redesign of the packaging, your engineers get an F on that, as for management they share the guilt of not being proactive in pushing for a redesign.

I want to join the chorus asking for a more user-friendly package. The current one is far too hard to open.

The plastic packaging is very hard to open, the box says “to use scissors if necessary” that is the only way I can get to the caplet and even then I have to dig it out of the plastic. When you’re sick with diarrhea the last thing you want to do is fight to get into the caplet that will give you relief. Go back to the drawing board and come up with a better plan, please!

I purchased the 24 count pack wrapped in foil. I am not a young person, but still have good hand strength. I could NOT get them out of the package without a pair of scissors. We were at a hotel and had to ask at the desk for a pair of scissors. The indentation for the notch was not at the edge of the small section. The pills had to be cut out, in order to take them. The backing paper was very heavy, must have been at least the weight of cardstock, so you could not peel it off. The foil package made it an easy to pack or carry benefit, Doesn't do much good if you can't get it open. I was very disappointed with the product!!!
