Simple Pharmacy Hack for the Progesterone Capsules from HELL

You've dealt with them. You've sworn at them. You've watched as they roll everywhere. You've watched technicians chasing them. I hate them. You hate them. EVERYONE hates them.

Of course, I'm talking about Progesterone "capsules." These miserable little balls from hell that go everywhere once they hit the counting tray. They roll, and roll, and roll their way off the counting tray and everywhere.

But they can be tamed with a simple hack. Gravity is your friend with these miserable balls.

Here's what you do:

1. Grab a prescription or transfer pad.

2. Slip the end of the counting tray on top of the pad.

 3. Release the Kraken:

4. The slight angle of the counting tray sends the miserable balls to the far end of the tray where they can be dealt with.

5. Be happy! You have defeated the beast!

Some manufacturers of benzonatate are the same miserable little balls.

There better be a special place in hell for the product designer that came up with this dumb a$$ idea. He/she can be joined by the genius who thought it was a funny idea to use white printing on a white background for expiration dates on packaging. And they can be kept company with the regulatory fools that think there is no need to have packaging design guidelines.

Hey, thanks! I'll use this for hydroxyzine caps too.

I will usually place the stock bottle infront of the pouring spout. In Canada they usually come in boxes of 30 now so no more rollies
