Sept. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- Pill Pouch, invented by Michigan resident Kathi Sitek, enters Meijer pharmacies to help Michiganders reduce the confusion of managing multiple medications. As a caregiver, Sitek developed the Pill Pouch to help her 90 year old mother, Stella, get organized and manage her eight meds with confidence. The Pill Pouch is now available to help others do the same—reduce confusion and improve health.

Pill Pouch LLC addresses community health on multiple levels. Beyond helping individuals take control of their own health, Pill Pouch contributes to the health of our local and domestic economy by keeping production here in Metro Detroit. “We make it a priority to keep our product made domestically,” said Kathi Sitek, founder and inventor.

“We are even looking beyond what we can do for individuals managing multiple medications, and partnering with local charity the Pink Fund to raise funds for breast cancer.” The Pink Fund provides financial aid to breast cancer patients active in treatment, and $1 from the sale of every Pink Pill Pouch (available online at www.pillpouch.net) will go to serving that mission.

As a Michigan-based company, with a Michigan-made product, Pill Pouch is “excited to see [its] product in Meijer pharmacies”, a Michigan-based company itself. “We are not only in the business of improving the health of people managing multiple medication, we are also concerned for the health of our economy.”

The Pill Pouch will be available in select Meijer pharmacies beginning in September 2012, and is also available online (in pink, blue and green) at www.pillpouch.net.

The Pill Pouch allows individuals to organize a sample of each pill along with pertinent information and any special instructions. Individuals managing multiple meds then utilize the Pill Pouch as a reference tool when taking daily medication, as a guide when setting up a weekly pill box, and as a companion to doctor visits, the pharmacy or in an emergency.

The Pill Pouch is a simple way to eliminate confusion, organize, manage, and better understand the medications one takes. In this way, individuals can take control of an otherwise precarious situation—managing multiple medications—doing so confidently and improving health as a result.
