Pill Terminator Review and $250 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway


When you have young kids who are constantly investigating things by tasting them, you get more than a little paranoid (and justly so!) about disposing of medications.  The result is a medicine cabinet full of medicines that you are just too nervous to just throw away for fear that they would somehow get them and swallow them (if you are like me, anyway).

In addition to putting the safety of your kids at risk,  improper disposal can have environmental hazards.  If you flush them or put them through the garbage disposal, the medications will end up in our water supply.  If you just throw them in the trash, they can get into the ground water around the dump your garbage is taken to.

Pill terminator could not be any easier to use.  Seriously, I thought it would be more complicated.  You simply Fill with medication, fill with warm water, shake, then throw away.  By the time you get done shaking you can even tell that the pills have dissolved!  


















Now For the Giveaway!  Good Luck Everyone!

    1. You're right, it would. It still has the environmental benefits, plus it can keep sanitation workers from coming into contact with the meds, which can lead to skin absorption.

  4. That's a really good item to have around with kids. And I had no idea that throwing away pills can be harmful to our water supply, too

  8. I wondered what this was actually going to be from the post title, but it's ingenious. Great idea, and saves trekking unused pills to the pharmacists.

  9. Interesting, but isn't something I really need since I don't take too many pills. Mostly just a daily multi vitamin. Thanks for the review though!

  17. I would love to know what is in this that helps dissolve the pills-I am going to check this out for sure. I have lots of meds that need destroying.

  18. Someone made a lot of money coming up with this idea and it's so simple. This is really awesome.. It's like a, "why didn't I think of that.." idea..

  19. This is a concern for me, but my pharmacy does have a program for disposing of old pills. The problem is there is a charge to do it and it's expensive too. We can hardly afford the pills and then we have to pay to dispose of them. This is a great product! Thanks for sharing!

  20. Wow, never seen anything like that before. What a cool product.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That is a very cool invention! I never heard of it, but i will be checking it out for sure!

  22. As a mommy of 9 and a nurse I think this is awesome! As long as you use really warm water. Would hate to have partial pills in there if the kids got really curious.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It looks really simple and cool. Is the bottle made of special material?

    1. No, In the bottom of the bottle, there is a pink powder. The back of the bottle says ""Pill Terminator contains inorganic solid solvents that help break down medications."

  24. It's amazing the great invention ideas we're coming up with nowadays. Thanks for sharing this one.

  25. That is pretty neat. I know I'm always having to go through expired stuff in the medicine cabinet.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I never thought about where the pills end up. Thanks for sharing this!

  27. It's an interesting concept, but then aren't you throwing a piece of plastic that can be recycled in the trash? I guess either way you can't really win. I don't want the pills in the trash as-is, but I wouldn't want to throw something away that can be recycled. Know what I mean?

    1. Unfortunately, you cannot recycle the Pill Terminator after it has been used, as you are not supposed to reopen the bottle after using. So it basically comes down to - making one plastic bottle unfit for recycling, or contaminate the water supply. I will take the lesser of the two evils here. You are right though, you can't really completely either way.

  28. Very cool. I have never seen anything like this!

  29. I take mine back to the pharmacy when they expire. I'd be interested in reading up more on this because even though the pills are dissolved, does it make the ingredients in the pills inactive? If eventually opened or crushed in an incinerator, does the liquid in bottles still pose a risk if leaked into the ground at the dump?

  30. I have never seen anything like this either. Amber N.

  31. I saw the above comment and I agree, it can be the lesser of two evils. I guess I'd rather keep my kids safe! This is a really interesting concept and I think a lot of people are in the market for something like this.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have never seen anything like that before - And it's actually really cool. I bet it's fun to do to!

  33. I think that this would benefit everyone by keeping these medicines out of our environment!

  37. I was just thinking of the same thing too about throwing the bottle too. But I guess you can never really win. Thanks for sharing this one. Although we don't have any medicine that have expired and need to be disposed, it is nice to know a product like this.
