Tablet Storage For Vacuum Sealed Tablets

Tablet Storage For Vacuum Sealed Tablets

In the past I've stored my tablets in a tablet box, but recently I've been moved to Sodium Valproate which is stored in little vacuum sealed compartments, only to be removed just before taking.

Has anyone got any tips on storing these tablets in a way I can monitor taking them?

Yeah. The gastro restraint ones are gentler on your stomach if you have stomach problems i.e. colitis IBS ect. The epilim chrono is a slow release hence only having to have it twice a day (i now have 600mg 3 times a day)

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member That's what I was on at first and found they did react a bit but now am on the Epilim Gastro Restraint 200's tablets also called Sodium Valproate they don't react as much. I'm on 3 tablets x 3 times a day total 1800mg
