Requip New Packaging


#1

Hi, has anyone else had problems with the new Requip packaging?  The blister packs are much thicker and it is really difficult to push the tablet out through the much thicker foil.  I am going to contact GSK but I thought I'd check out if it is a widespread problem before I do.

I totally agree.  It's ironic that a drug for Parkinson's would be especially difficult for a person with Parkinson's to open.

You might using the point of a paring knife.

Our chemist offers to pop any tablets that are problematic and put them in a labelled bottle.

We have both used this service a few times when packaging defeats us....Just ask...
