Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
15,000 people die each year from overdosing on prescription painkillers. Addiction to narcotic medication is an epidemic plaguing many patients and their families across the country. Prescription drug abuse is common, 1 in 20 people (12 and older) admitted to using prescription painkillers recreationally according to the CDC.
Boston based e-pill Medication Reminders (http://www.epill.com / legal name e-pill, LLC) today released the first affordable Triple Lock Tamper Proof Automatic Pill Dispenser to help doctors and patients and their families better manage pain and psych medications. The e-pill SAFE (SKU 998024) helps patients who face the challenges of prescription drug addiction, or have a problem of taking more pills than are prescribed. This new locked e-pill dispenser only gives the patient access to their pain medications when they are due; right meds, right time, right dosage.
This device is innovative because it allows the patient to continue to have an active lifestyle while taking their medications as prescribed. Patients will be able to continue their normal lives during treatment. They will be able to return to work by having the ability to leave their e-pill SAFE in their car, gym bag, locker or other appropriate location.
Triple locks provides three measures of security. The pill dispenser itself has a lock which is locked in a secure case by a padlock. The third lock allows the patient to secure the metal med box to a certain location. The e-pill SAFE is specially designed to prevent the patient as well as others in the household from accessing medication that is not scheduled to be dispensed at that time.
"Our e-pill SAFE is the first triple locked portable pill dispenser and will prevent the user and those around them from taking too much medication", says Stefan Solvell, President of e-pill Medication Reminders. "The e-pill SAFE is a practical solution to help curb the prescription drug abuse epidemic. It will provide the patient and their family with peace of mind by knowing only the right meds are taken".
PAIN PILL ADDICTION Management:
Autonomy and productivity is possible when patients use this triple lock tamper proof pill dispenser. The e-pill SAFE will prevent the patient as well as others from trying to tamper with their medication such as hydrocodone, oxycodone and other opiate type of medications. At home the patient can lock the device to a certain location to ensure the device and the medication inside is not stolen. This device may also be used in drug rehabilitation to store buprenorphine / naloxone and methadone.

It is on sale for $589.95 (SKU 998024 / suggested retail price $750) and can be purchased directly from e-pill (http://www.epill.com/epillsafe.html) or Amazon.com.
