My elderly mum is having problems opening medicine bottle tops with the child proof tops.

Does anybody know if you can buy replacement bottle tops that are just a standard screw on and off.

Any ideas [:T]

You can get a dome type cover that pushes over them to give more grip and push - I'm sure they're available in the Bettaware catalogue, I'll have a look online

You can cut the outer cover off with some sidecutters or snips,
leaves a smooth sided top but with castellations on that provide grip.
takes away the safety aspect tho.

Im fairly sure that the chemist can supply them in a normal container if you ask them and state why.

I need to check with The Boss (she used to dispense medicines) but I think you can ask for ordinary caps to be used.

You can ask for the drugs to be supplied in "dosset" boxes. Those are the boxes that have the pills in a compartment for each day and even time of day. The dispenser gets an extra payment for doing this and it is a right so they won't say no.
