Great, if you can open it

It works really well but, plan ahead to have good scissors around to open the package. For something like diahrrea, you would think this would be easy to run and get to, that is not the case. The little line where you're supposed to tear open, is not tearable in any way upon close inspection. You need to cut one side near the pill, while making sure not to crush the pill (have had that happen thrice so far), nor that the pill will pop out rolling away into the abyss (twice), and that you cut enough to be able to pull at the indestructible backing to get to the pill. Is this backing material used in the military? I don't see how this was approved by anyone. I literally can tear bookboard apart with my own hands and open the toughest jars but, these little packages have torn open the skin on my fingers with 0 progress to reach the pill.

Please revise packaging!

I bought a small amount to test this product at the advise of my doctor; however due to my inability to open the package I never was able to use the recommended amount. I inadvertently crushed the pills, lost a few attempting to extract them. I am going to experiment with a liquid version..

The horrible packaging

There is no doubt that the medicine is very effective....but first you have to reach it!...i am sure that engineers were involved in the design of the packaging, they produced a very human unfriendly solution, I have read many reviews, some from elderly or disabled people, I do not belong to either group, but had to use my engineering background to figure out what that small line on the pack meant...it really did not mean anything! I design packaging for various items in manufacturing, with the aim of making the item accessible and secure from a damage point of view. You have remained complacent about the redesign of the packaging, your engineers get an F on that, as for management they share the guilt of not being proactive in pushing for a redesign.

Package

The plastic packaging is very hard to open, the box says “to use scissors if necessary” that is the only way I can get to the caplet and even then I have to dig it out of the plastic. When you���re sick with diarrhea the last thing you want to do is fight to get into the caplet that will give you relief. Go back to the drawing board and come up with a better plan, please!

Be careful which size package you purchase. wrong. I am not a young person, but still have strength in

I purchased the 24 count pack wrapped in foil. I am not a young person, but still have good hand strength. I could NOT get them out of the package without a pair of scissors. We were at a hotel and had to ask at the desk for a pair of scissors. The indentation for the notch was not at the edge of the small section. The pills had to be cut out, in order to take them. The backing paper was very heavy, must have been at least the weight of cardstock, so you could not peel it off. The foil package made it an easy to pack or carry benefit, Doesn't do much good if you can't get it open. I was very disappointed with the product!!!
