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?
