Locking, alarm equipped pill dispensers

I know everyone has there own system and if they are anything like me, they don't want anything hindering their access to their medicine. Even if it is for their own best interest. But this was designed specifically for pain pts, addicts, those in rehab, etc. I personally use a nifty book style 14 day organizer like this: http://www.wdrake.com/buy-14-day-pill-holder-302912 and even though it doesn't keep me from taking more than I'm supposed to, it helps me keep track of where I'm at. The one above though, has 4 or 6 separate locks and dispenses up to 6 times a day. I thought this may be helpful for someone who wants to control their intake but their will power is lacking. Hope this is helpful to someone! Y'all have a great night! ~ Lissa

In theory, a locking pill dispenser sounds like a good idea. However in practice, if you really want to abuse your dope bad enough, what's to stop you from smashing it open in a parking lot at 3am? Then you're out of $500. Not to mention that you would have the keys to this thing, so that wouldn't keep you out. And if someone else had the keys and the device malfunctioned, you'd be up shirt creek.
Now fixing in a parking lot near you!

Absolutely agreed on all counts. You would have to be motivated to use it not abuse it, and/or have someone you trust who is readily available to keep it maintained. I do think it could be helpful to those truly motivated to manage their intake though. *I would be smashing it and out $500!*  ::)

Oh god when I was using I would have smashed/broken into/"whatever" that pill dispenser every day and every night.

Very clever.

Something to do while you think of a logical explanation as to how it suddenly "burst open".

There are ones on Amazon for 1/5 of that price that seem better built and less breakable.

That thing is so weird I went and Googled a video.  It is actually a cool design, and rather smart.  It is solid aluminum on the outside, and looks like 1/4" or 1/8" thickness.  Pretty solid unless you cut it open.

The thing doesn't open to take your meds out.  There is a carousel inside that turns and lines up with the hole on the bottom, and you tip it out.  The problem is $500.  Insanity.

I think it is a good idea but would be worried about destroying the $500 safe when I am in need. However if you are not in withdrawal and getting the right amount of meds prescribed to you it could be a good option. You would only be dealing with craving to get high and not withdrawal so you wouldn't be as inspired to destroy it. I wish it was cheaper I am currently looking for a lockbox for MMT and they are somewhat expensive new and hard to find used.

What kind of lock box do you need?  I bought one at walmart for less than twenty bux.  They had the kind with a lock and key and the kind with the built in combination lock.   Both were fine..I like the one with the built in combo lock better just because I don't have to keep track of the little key!

I just need a cheap one. Sadly $20 is out of my price range right now. I just hit a rough patch lost my job,  and got officially denied from Walmart. My car wouldn't start yesterday, but I may have got it fixed. I have about 8 cents to last me until my food stamps come in on the first.

My financial aid to go back to school is still pending. I have to prove I was traveling to Oklahoma in March when I got arrested and that I have a job that has a flexible schedule after I prove that I still don't know if they will approve my appeal. If they do then in February I will be good, I can pay off all my fines and debt and wont have to work as much. Plus just being back in school will be a huge self esteem booster of me.

I am not winning the battle against my depression right now I have gotten out of bed about 4 times sense last Monday. I am just hoping everything works out and getting back into school is about my only way considering I can't even get a job at walmart because of my record. Even though I don't have any felonies. I just hope that when I have a degree they can overlook my 3 misdemeanors and give me a chance.

Bam pain gurl i love that graphic.

As far as these safes i have never had lucky taking extra until recently with this new doctor. Now that she keeps tapering (for no reason) and messing with my meds and not listening to me i am forced to have my 28 year old child hold my meds and dish them out to me. It makes me feel like such a addict  when all i really want it to be able to stand long enough to fix some lunch. Yes there are days when i just want to give the hell up and end it all but then i think about my kids (who are all grown) and i really am all they have and i could never do it so they would find me so i keep plugging away miserable as hell.

Sorry I just had to comment cause once i saw you graphic it made me think how many others deal with this.

 :-\ Bay,
                I can absolutely relate! When I first had my accident and had recovered enough to get an idea of the pain I was looking at for the rest of my life, but had not yet learned many of the tools I use today to get through until the meds kick in (or get through alive if I have no meds) suicide was regularly at the forefront of my mind. And I have very strong beliefs about suicide that make it (under any circumstances) the worst act I could ever contemplate.

Even now knowing my life will assuredly end sooner than the average person my age in average health gives me a comfort I cannot share with anyone closer than a stranger. And yes, then I think of my family that depends on me and it gives me a reason to fight the pain and the ideas that ride in on those waves.

Sorry if this sounds disjointed, the past three days I've been at a hard 8.5 for pain and the pills may bring a 7 but nothing less. Thinking of you and praying you get some rest and relief! Take care ~ Lissa

BamaPainGurl & Bay,

I so get where your both coming from. Especially when you wake up from a bad sleep night (or cats laying like landmines that twisted you into something resembling Golem) & your waiting for that first morning dose to kick in. So you can unkink your body.

I too have had a bunch of those times where I just wanted an end to the agony & endless Dr. appts & needing to depend on others to help me get around. Let me tell you, the first time I had to use my wheelchair was embarrassing and humiliating. I'm not yet 40, I've used canes for years, but giving in to needing the wheelchair was a whole new level of loss of control.

Though the wheelchair made it possible for me to spend a week in Washington D.C. & actually SEE most of what I wanted to see.

I can relate Bama Gurl mine has been in the upper 9's and i admit chipping has been a huge help but i do not want to go back that route either. UGH it like damned if you do damned if you don't.

Michelle I was in a chair in my 40's and late 30's and discovered that without insurance i could go on Methadone clinic to stay out of the chair but my main doctor talked me into going on Pain Management and i thought oh these docs will help me
WRONG and now i am back to using the chair in the house again
I get so so frustrated i just want to scream at this doctor.
I have a advocate i been keeping a pain journal and i have 3 doctors on my team willing to talk to this doctor about my issues nad so i pray i go back the 10th i will know more then.
