MedReady has added a new model to their already-impressive line of medication dispenser – this one specifically for people living with chronic pain.
Patients who take “as needed” or “pro re nata” (PRN) medication can maintain safe dosing intervals more easily with the MedReady 1700 Medication Dispenser for PRN Dosing. The dispenser is perfect for people taking pain medication for conditions such as chronic pain or post-surgery pain.
- Countdown timer begins when a dose is taken
- Next dose only becomes accessible when countdown ends

- Locked lid prevents tampering with medication

Unlike other MedReady dispensers, this PRN edition does not provide scheduling for dosing times and does not sound alarms. Instead, the dispenser allows you to take a dose whenever it’s needed. However, once a dose is taken, the dispenser will not allow another dose to be taken until a specified time has passed, helping to prevent overdose.
As soon as a dose is taken, the dispenser starts its built-in countdown timer, shown on an extra large LED display. When this timer reaches 0:00, the next dose will become available to take as needed. The minimum time between doses can be set from 15 minutes to 24 hours (user-selectable).
Supports Full Medication Regimens
The MedReady Medication Dispenser comes with a removable medication tray that holds 28 doses of dry medication (pills or capsules). Each of the 28 compartments is ramped for easy removal of medication, and can hold up to nine M&M-sized pills. The MedReady dispenser also has a card holder in the bottom for a printed copy of the patient’s prescriptions.
The medication dispenser is designed to ensure medication compliance without hassle. Divisions between compartments keep medications in place even if the dispenser is turned upside down. Furthermore, the dispenser is protected under lock and key, so that no one can tamper with doses.
Setting the minimum time between doses is as simple as setting a digital alarm clock. The medication dispenser’s extra large LED display can be viewed from any angle and is self-illuminating, so it can be seen in any lighting conditions.
MedReady conveniently uses AC power, but in the event of a power outage or short-term travel, it switches automatically to the included rechargeable battery pack.
