Needs to come in a bottle! The blister packs are difficult to open especially for seniors. Why? Everything else comes in bottles!

Great product bad packaging

I’ve used this product for years and it works fast and is very effective. The downside and it’s a big one, the packaging. I’m older now and my fingers have arthritis making a tiny packet difficult at best. Typically I need this in a hurry and finding a sharp object to open the packet without smashing the tablet adds to the urgency. Please consider changing the package!

Good Product. Also no issues with the packaging. I am curious about the shelf life of the product. I very seldom have symptoms that require Imodium.

Before I came here to complain about the packaging I did a little research and learned that the stinking FDA got involved and is forcing the use of single dose packaging. Okay, I get it, the majority of us have to suffer because of the few who abuse the drug but isn’t it possible to make the blister easier to open? It shouldn’t require the use of a jigsaw to open a blister pack. By the way, the medication is excellent! I would give 5 stars if the blister was easier to open.

I resolutely consider this to be what one may call a "miracle drug". This concerns the product - NOT the packaging. My 80 year old hands have a real problem with the packaging ... I have to use an x-acto knife to open them ...

It’s too hard to cut these open with the scissors, You need to leave more space around the pill, and not shrink wrap it so tightly. Have you tried to open it?

I have arthritis in my right hand, my wife has arthritis in both hands. With a struggle we could open the childproof caps on the plastic bottles, but with the blister packs it's nearly impossible for either of us to open. Please return to the plastic bottles.

I'm not ill, aged, or weak: I'm helping a loved one. I couldn't figure out the packaging and had to resort to cutting it out with a pair of scissors. How do you expect a patient to use your product by presenting such a challenge? Please don't respond with the 1999 FDA requirements. The FDA requirements don't call for packaging this difficult. Really, I'm seeing this same complaint from almost every review, and the reviews aren't recent. Patients don't care that you will have a profit setback due to changing the packaging. And, we all know that patients will buy the product regardless of packaging BECAUSE THEY NEED THE MEDICATION = shame on you.

Although it works, the packaging would make one think you were trying to infiltrate a nuclear site. An ordinary adult cannot get into the packaging without tools. Ridiculous.

I have used Imodium for several years and find it works well. However, the packaging is impossible to open! I may have to try a different product. Unless you have a pair of scissors or pocket knife on you, you'll be unable to open the package.

Extract the pill with ease (although annoying)

I use two 2 mg Immodeum tablets a day, and have been for decades. I open a box of 12 pakets each with 6 tablets ) - 84 in all - in 5 minutes and store them in a container. How ? Puncture only one edge of the tinfoil backing of each pill using your thumbnail. Then push each blister bulge from the front. Out pops each pill. Quick and easy - but annoying.
