Walgreens to Offer Talking Prescription Devices Nationwide

Walgreens announced Tuesday that it is launching a program to offer talking prescription devices, called the Talking Pill Reminder,  to customers with visual impairments. It will be offered at its retail locations nationwide.

From the Walgreens press release:

“The device attaches to prescription containers and will be provided free of charge with prescription medications that Walgreens dispenses to its pharmacy customers who are blind or who have visual impairments. The Talking Pill Reminder can be recorded to speak the information on the customer’s prescription medication label, and also has an audible alarm to remind patients when to take a medication.

The Talking Pill Reminder is available to customers of Walgreens retail pharmacies across the country and through Walgreens prescription mail service.  The devices also are available in Walgreens drugstores for purchase for a retail price of $9.99. “
