Where can I get spare slides for my Dosett?
These can be ordered on line as can all spares for the Dosett range.

How can I wash my Dosett ?
Clean in hand hot water and dry thoroughly after removing the sliding lids. Do not machine wash.

I have mislaid the user instructions for my Dosett.  How do I obtain a replacement ?
Contact us, by email if possible, and we will send a copy by return of post.

Why are there different colours for the Dosett ?
For choice, to allow two people in one household to have a different model and to differentiate between one week’s supply of medication and another.

I wish to enquire about the Dosett Maxi for my sister who has to take 37 tablets a day.  She has MS and I wonder if this product is suitable for someone with limited manual dexterity – ideally the lids need to be openable with one hand. Do you consider the Dosett Maxi to be suitable for her?
The lids/slides can be opened with one hand but the Dosett Maxi would have to be placed on a non slip mat. The measurements for each compartment are stated in the product description.

How do I wash the cups and lids?
Place in a dish washing machine or wash thoroughly by hand.

Can I crush all tablets?
Please consult your pharmacist to check if your tablets are suitable for crushing.

Which tablet crusher is the best?
Both Crushers that we market are excellent products:

  • The number 98w tablet/pill crusher has an easy grip design, has a storage compartment and also crushes tablets to a fine powder
  • The number 97 tablet/pill crusher is often used in pharmacies

The unique millers produce a fine powder that allows the medication to be given by gastro tube. Tablets are crushed into a 30ml cup this reduces powder loss to a minimum. This info is only for the number 97.

How do I wash the Pill Splitters?
Washing instructions are included. The number 96 pill cutter can also be sterilised, steam time 18 minutes at 121c or 3-4 minutes at 134c.

Can I cut my tablets into quarters if so which pill cutter do I use?
The number 96 pill splitter would be suitable.  It has a very high quality cutting blade therefore it is more expensive than the 96C pill splitter.

Can I use the pill splitter on all types of tablets? 
No, please consult your pharmacist to check if your tablets are suitable for cutting.  Some tablets are designed as slow release or modified release and are not suitable for cutting.
