Unlike other MedReady dispensers, this PRN edition does not provide scheduling for dosing times and does not sound alarms. Instead, the dispenser allows you to take a dose whenever it’s needed. However, once a dose is taken, the dispenser will not allow another dose to be taken until a specified time has passed, helping to prevent overdose.
As soon as a dose is taken, the dispenser starts its built-in countdown timer, shown on an extra large LED display. When this timer reaches 0:00, the next dose will become available to take as needed. The minimum time between doses can be set from 15 minutes to 24 hours (user-selectable).
