Pez Pill Dispenser

Portable pills in a cartridge

Pill bottles rattle in the pocket or bag. Blister packs get crumpled and hold too few pills. Why not a spring-loaded canister like a Pez dispenser? A calibrated slot in the side shows how many are left (or how many you have eaten). Contraceptive canisters are close, but still waste a lot of space. Besides, they don't come with cool heads. Think of the possibilities: Bart Simpson for Ritalin, Elvis for Valium, and Nancy Reagan for anything without a scrip (though ravers might favor the big-eyed glow-in-the-dark alien for their E). Birth control pills are a challenge: Margaret Sanger? Carl Djerassi? Trent Lott?

       Cute. It might encourage those who eat too many vitamins over the course of the day to cut down on the number of dispensers they own...

       ummm...why can't you just use regular pez dispensers? most pills should fit in them.

       I conclude with Peter also.   

       Kids on Zoloft . . . sounds dispensable to me.

       Stupid idea. Drugs should look like drugs. If a kid/someone found a pez dispenser, they'd think there were sweets inside them and maybe just eat them.

       Why can't we have a variety of characters or objects for the dispenser, instead of what you mentioned? Who would be stupid enough to think that a pill is a candy?
