You should try living in the US, Belle!
Every over the counter medication comes with in a hermetically sealed package.. Allergy medication, hemorrhoid suppositories, stool softeners, laxatives liquid or powdered. While I appreciate a sanitary and complete seal, shouldn’t there be a slight tab or something to ease opening the package?
Clam shell packaging is all the go here also. A double thickness of industrial plastic heat sealed to the dimensions of a item, think small kitchen utensils, cosmetics etc.
Of course whenever I have needed an emergency allergy pill, I usually am someplace without an available tool to pry that beast open!
