Dosepak’s large, fold-out panel guarantees that the dosing instructions, reminders and branding of the outer carton stay with the inner card for the duration of therapy, unlike with pill bottles and standard blister cards. Customization allows for large, readable fonts to communicate important information for the therapy course, a critical element for complex regimens or medications that may have side effects. The package can also include a micro CD for additional patient education materials when needed.
Building brand equityDosepak’s customizable platform maintains all of its features in a variety of sizes and formats, and provides a gateway to branded CRM programs.
Child resistant and senior-friendlyDosepak® packaging has a unique locking mechanism that earned it the highest child resistance rating from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission: F=1. Yet independent testing proved that it remains easy for seniors to open.
Stackable and efficient format
The efficient, pass-through format eliminates the need for pharmacists to repackage the medication into pharmacy vials — saving time and money while helping prevent dispensing errors. And Dosepak packages stack and store more efficiently than standard pill bottles.
MWV uses renewable paperboard to produce Dosepak pharmaceutical packaging versus petro-based plastic vials.
