Sort & Seal

Keeping your meds and vitamins straight is much easier with this travel pill organizer. PillSuite sorts and seals your pills into single-dose packs that are easy to store, transport, and take. Arrange your daily, weekly, or monthly doses with the funnel dispenser then they slide into a baggie that you can label with the date and time to take. The included sealer puts an airtight seal on each bag, too. When Phil and Diane Kimmel were packing their vitamins and prescriptions for a trip, every solution they came up with was either too confusing or cumbersome—pills got mixed up or the bottles took up too much space. PillSuite is perfect for travel but it’s great for everyday use, too. It makes your meds manageable enough to take anywhere.

    @Diane - Thank you! I love the idea of a biodegradable pouch as I read some of the other comments! I am always concerned when I use a zip-loc bags that they there is a lot of wasted plastic. They also get dirty very quickly. This looks so clean and simple to use. Anyway, it would cost a small fortune to sort out the pills in zip-loc bags the way this does it.

    Does the funnel dispenser dispense your pills one at a time and you have to move it around for each pill or does it gather them somehow for onetime dispensing?

  • Diane
    Diane – Special Guest
    1/26/2017 10:59 AM

    @Cathy

    Hi Cathy! Our sorter has seven sections (Monday thru Sunday) which you may individually place your desired pills or vitamins. The sorters lid has the funnel which, when turned upside down into the biodegradable packet, lets the pills slide into the packet. You then slide the funnel to the next section of the sorter (which is your next day) and in a new packet dispense the pills.

    Great question!

  • Pamela

    1/26/2017 11:01 AM

    @Andrea B. You really don't need two sets, since the bags act as your own individual packet for each set of pills you take and you can write your name on the bag once you've filled it. I have one of these and it's very easy to organize the pills you take by just putting an initial on the bag and then you don't have any confusion as to what pills you and your husband take. I love mine!

    So we're actually going backwards on how much waste we create? Are these packs biodegradeable? If not, it would be a good idea. I like the idea of this, but it generates a lot of unnecessary waste. Food for thought

    Hello Joanna!

    Our packets are absolutely biodegradable. In fact, they have been certified by EPI (Environmental Products Inc)

    The white area on the Pillsuite packets (where you can write directions for use) is soy ink.

    This was one of our first requirements!

    Thank you for your comments.

    I see your point: ideally, the packets should be recyclable/compostable. But using the travel packets is just an option; one could, I assume, just as easily pour pills from the sorter into zipper baggies or some other reusable container.

    As I take care of family meds on a weekly basis, 3 people with am and pm pill needs....do you have a sorter that is am and pm...seems cumbersome to do this without even an extra sorter as some meds are 2x a day...

    also, how long does it take to seal ...i love this concept, just wanted know a few more details...thanks.

  • Diane
    Diane – Special Guest
    1/26/2017 12:03 PM

    Hello Monica,

    Due to high demand of extra sorters we are in the process of adding them to our product line. I realize this does not help you right now but they will be coming in the future.

    The sealer takes approximately 3-5 seconds to seal, depending on battery life. The batteries should last for approx. 300 seals!

    Thank you for your questions and we believe our PillSuite system will help you to manage your family's meds.

    This is so similar to an idea I have had for years about a way to pack my skin care lotions and potions in daily packs rather than having to pack the whole bottle when I travel. But alas, I never worked too hard at developing the idea myself. This looks like a great product! I am going to get one and see if I can make it work for liquids/cremes-- if it doesn't I'll settle on just using it for my vitamins! But perhaps, in the future, you might develop a syringe of sorts for filling the pack with liquids?! Just a thought. :)

    This appears to be a great idea. I would love to be able to condense the medication to a couple of days worth in my purse and the rest in a carry-on suitcase.

    Has it been run by airport security, customs and immigration? I travel a lot and have always been told that prescription medicine needs to be in original prescription containers. Therefore I always bring the supply that I will need (plus a few extra days) in their original large containers.

    Hello PJ,

    Travel is wonderful with PillSuite packets! I also carry packets in my purse even when not travelling.

    On TSA's blog it states "it is not necessary to present your medication to, or notify an officer about any medication you are traveling with unless it is in liquid form."

    As a former flight attendant, I suggest you keep a list with you of any prescriptions you may take as a precaution.

    Thank you for your great question PJ!

  • Gregory

    Pharmacist here, it is always recommended to travel with a copy of your original prescription even if in the original bottles. Nobody does this, however, and I doubt you'd ever have a problem. If you want to guarantee you won't have an issue, bring a copy of the prescription.

    Hi Charlene,

    A zip bag or container with loose pills is not acceptable.

    Always carry your prescriptions with your single dosages.

    Hi Collette,

    My husband and I used the reusable containers for years as that was our only option. The plastic tops would break, open up in our suitcase, his briefcase and my purse. When traveling for a couple weeks we can now pack our vitamins into PillSuite's biodegradable packets, save much more space in the suitcase and no need to return home with the empty plastic containers.

    Thank you for your opinion!

    This sounds like an answer to my prayers! Awesome. We travel a lot and I've been buying the small bags and doing it myself, but this would be nicer, plus my bags come open often. To the the people who have a need for an am/pm or husband/wife need, the pills aren't meant to stay in the container except long enough to bag them up, so that shouldn't ever be an issue. I hope this explains a bit better. Also, we travel overseas also and also take are pills this way, You may want to take the prescription label, but you don't need the original container.

    This looks great for my traveling parents - but they have arthritic hands with limited dexterity. I can't tell from the video how the baggie attaches to the sorter. Do you have a better demonstration of that? Right now they sort and put into very small ziplock type bags

  • Diane
    Diane – Special Guest
    1/26/2017 2:54 PM

    @carmen

    Hi Carmen,

    You do need to open the end of the packet to place it under/around the funnel.

    I believe the small ziplock bags are also tough to open as well as close to make sure the pills do not spill.

    I have several friends who use PillSuite to package medications for their parents who are unable to do so themselves.

    You may have to outweigh the positives with the negatives for their situation.

    Hope this helps!

    Hello Monica,

    Due to high demand of extra sorters we are in the process of adding them to our product line. I realize this does not help you right now but they will be coming in the future.

    The sealer takes approximately 3-5 seconds to seal, depending on battery life. The batteries should last for approx. 300 seals!

    Thank you for your questions and we believe our PillSuite system will help you to manage your family's meds.

    How easy are the packets to open? Will scissors be needed?

    Hi Susan!

    Great question! Each PillSuite packet has a perforated side which makes opening very easy for everyone.

    Thank you!

    This is so similar to an idea I have had for years about a way to pack my skin care lotions and potions in daily packs rather than having to pack the whole bottle when I travel. But alas, I never worked too hard at developing the idea myself. This looks like a great product! I am going to get one and see if I can make it work for liquids/cremes-- if it doesn't I'll settle on just using it for my vitamins! But perhaps, in the future, you might develop a syringe of sorts for filling the pack with liquids?! Just a thought. :)

    Hi Sandra!

    My husband Phil has the engineering mind and developed this wonderful concept.

    I believe you also have a much needed product Sandra. :)

    Thank you for your comments, your order and never say never!

    This appears to be a great idea. I would love to be able to condense the medication to a couple of days worth in my purse and the rest in a carry-on suitcase.

    Has it been run by airport security, customs and immigration? I travel a lot and have always been told that prescription medicine needs to be in original prescription containers. Therefore I always bring the supply that I will need (plus a few extra days) in their original large containers.

    Hello PJ,

    Travel is wonderful with PillSuite packets! I also carry packets in my purse even when not travelling.

    On TSA's blog it states "it is not necessary to present your medication to, or notify an officer about any medication you are traveling with unless it is in liquid form."

    As a former flight attendant, I suggest you keep a list with you of any prescriptions you may take as a precaution.

    Thank you for your great question PJ!

    @PJ

    Pharmacist here, it is always recommended to travel with a copy of your original prescription even if in the original bottles. Nobody does this, however, and I doubt you'd ever have a problem. If you want to guarantee you won't have an issue, bring a copy of the prescription.

    @Diane one suggestion. Gather your perscription bottles and take close up pictures of them on ur smart phone. That way u always have a list of ur meds.

    @Diane please check the law!

    i had a friend with meds in purse in small container who was arrested.

    she produced scripts but was a horrible experience.

    Please have the law confirm this is ok.

    @Charlene

    Hi Charlene,

    If prescriptions are re-packaged, they must be in single dosages.

    A zip bag or container with loose pills is not acceptable.

    Always carry your prescriptions with your single dosages.

    Thank you!

    Love this! I have 2 boys who both take morning and evening meds. This would make it so much easier to pack their meds when they go to their dad's for the weekend. I wouldn't have to search for the empty pill bottle that always gets lost!

    Do we really need to use even more plastic for such tasks? Personally, I will use reusable containers and skip these single use bags.

    @Collette

    Hi Collette,

    My husband and I used the reusable containers for years as that was our only option. The plastic tops would break, open up in our suitcase, his briefcase and my purse. When traveling for a couple weeks we can now pack our vitamins into PillSuite's biodegradable packets, save much more space in the suitcase and no need to return home with the empty plastic containers.

    Thank you for your opinion!

    Do you have any plans to make the sealer usable with a separate power supply/power pack/adapter?

  • Diane

    @Paul

    Hi Paul!

    We are looking into a wall powered adapter. Cell phone chargers do not have enough power for a good seal. We will keep working on this.

    Great question Paul, thanks!

    This sounds like an answer to my prayers! Awesome. We travel a lot and I've been buying the small bags and doing it myself, but this would be nicer, plus my bags come open often. To the the people who have a need for an am/pm or husband/wife need, the pills aren't meant to stay in the container except long enough to bag them up, so that shouldn't ever be an issue. I hope this explains a bit better. Also, we travel overseas also and also take are pills this way, You may want to take the prescription label, but you don't need the original container.

    I do the same thing with small zip bags. Are your packets easy to open in order to dispense the pills into them with the sorter funnel? That is the difficult step with the zip bags.

    Hello Jean,

    Yes, our sorter funnel makes filling the bags easy plus zip bags may not be food grade or biodegradable which ours are.

    Thank you for your questions!

    This looks great for my traveling parents - but they have arthritic hands with limited dexterity. I can't tell from the video how the baggie attaches to the sorter. Do you have a better demonstration of that? Right now they sort and put into very small ziplock type bags

    @carmen

    Hi Carmen,

    You do need to open the end of the packet to place it under/around the funnel.

    I believe the small ziplock bags are also tough to open as well as close to make sure the pills do not spill.

    I have several friends who use PillSuite to package medications for their parents who are unable to do so themselves.

    You may have to outweigh the positives with the negatives for their situation.

    Hope this helps!
