24 Jul Talking perscription labels
If you are blind or cannot read or need help remembering when to take your medications, here are a few options to help
1. The ScripTalk by Envision America-(click on link to open) is free to any person who signs up to use a participating pharmacy. It is a loan, so if you change pharmacies you need to return the device. Participating pharmacies include CVS mail order, some individual pharmacies, and some Wal Mart Pharmacies. You can see the participating pharmacies on the Envision Website or if you go to your local Wal Mart and request they get one, they have been very receptive according to Envision America.
2. Walgreens offers talking prescription labels, they use a different system. The recordable label also has an alarm to remind patients of the time to take their medications. Even if you do not use Walgreens pharmacy they are selling the recording devices with alarms for $10 each.
