>Foil packets are probably the ideal way to preserve medication from light and moisture.
I've noticed that nearly all our meds are dispensed in blister strips here, but bottles seem to be the norm in the US. I suppose it means each individual tablet better is protected from light and moisture than if it were forced to slum it in a communal bottle?
The only antidepressant I've had in a bottle was Parnate, and that had one of those little moisture absorber devices to keep them all nice and fresh. They sometimes put diazepam and other common drugs like penicillin in bottles because they're dispensed from a large central container as required (I've seen them lifting the temazepam one out of the safe).
I posted the picture because in the past I've felt people have not believed some of my claims regarding the meds I've taken/am taking.
