The patented Dose Control device is a more secure alternative to the common “pop top, access all at once” container. It is designed to dispense pills, tablets, or capsules no faster than the prescribed and programmed rate. Pre-configured blister packs or individually loaded medications are accommodated.

Dose Control ™ is especially focused toward abuse-potential medications: opioids, stimulants, and depressants.

“Prescription drug abuse is the fastest-growing drug problem in the United States. Because prescription drugs are legal, they are easily accessible, often from a home medicine cabinet.”
(Office of National Drug Control Policy)

The common “pop top, access all at once” container for abuse-potential medications has significant inherent risk – remove the lid and all of the medication inside is immediately available to ingest, steal, share, or sell. Lack of adequate security of abuse-potential medications contributes to prescription drug abuse, across all age groups, from pre-teens to the elderly, according to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America.
