Join our Twitter Chat with PillPack Founder

TwitterChatOn April 14, at 8:00 pm ET, Living Well With Epilepsy goes live with our first Twitter Chat. The featured guest will be TJ Parker, CEO and Co-Founder of PillPack. If you haven’t heard of this company yet, check out the video below.

PillPack is a pharmacy that makes it simple to take the right medications at the right time. As one who takes 20 pills made up of 4 prescriptions, 2 times a day, 365 days a year, I welcome any innovation that can inject even a little simplicity into my life.

What makes PillPack unique?

You will see in the video, whether you take 3 or 4 or 12 different meds each day, they can organize and package your prescriptions based on the time of day you take them and ship them to your house every two weeks.
Okay, let’s stop there for a minute. Not every three months. Not every month. Every two weeks.
They have eliminated all the dreadful elements of going to the pharmacy. First off, you don’t have to go anywhere. Next, you don’t have to sort pill boxes or combine meds in bottles. Oh and they handle all the coordination with your doctor and your insurance.

Okay, let’s take a minute and check out the video.

Can you imagine the possibilities?

No more packing huge bottles of meds when you travel. No more worrying that your meds will fall out of the case on the way to the gym. Amazing.

Customer Service

Customer service is really important to TJ Parker. “One of the things we found before starting PillPack is that retail pharmacists rarely have the tools or time to communicate with their customers. For example, before we started PillPack, I talked to a young woman with epilepsy who had been on the same medication for years. Most of the time her script would go through with no problem, but occasionally it would be denied, with no explanation. She said she would feel completely powerless and uninformed while her doctor, pharmacist, and insurance company went through some “black-box website” to get the script cleared and refilled,” said Parker.
