Hi Richard,
The device seems to work just fine, the problem seems to be with the Walgreen 
staff.
Even after numerous phone calls, only some of our prescriptions 
come with the talking pill reminders.
I appreciate that the service is free, but in our experience it has been very 
inconsistent.
As far as choosing a pharmacy with the scripTtalk, it sounds like we are in the 
same boat as you.  (smile)

Take care,
Rick

  Yes, it attaches to the cap. What have you found not satisfactory about them? 
  I just got my first batch of prescriptions, and they work fine for me?
  The pharmacist recorded the medication name, strength and dosage 
instructions. 
  It is true that with ScriptTalk, you also get the prescription number, 
expiration date, and phone numbers for the doctor and the pharmacy, but no 
pharmacy I could use through my insurance uses ScriptTalk.

    Hi Richard,
    Just for clarification, the talking pill reminder from Walgreen is not 
actually a cap,
    rather a small device that is attached to the cap.
    So far, my experience with Walgreen and these talking pill reminders has 
been less than stellar!

    HTH,
    Rick

      I’d suggest checking out two options.

      Walgreens pharmacies provide a talking pill reminder cap on their 
prescriptions as well as an app that can identify the prescription number and 
be used to do refills, but it doesn’t seem to speak the specific prescription.  
Hence, the talking pill reminder cap.



      Or, several chains now use the ScriptTalk from Envision America.  You can 
check it out at www.scriptability.com



      They are also doing an app, but the pharmacy has to participate in their 
program for that to work.



      HTH,

      Richard
