How can I transport Cialis/Viagra pills for emergency use?

I'm a single male and there have been occasions I wasn't expecting sex and needed a Cialis. Luckily, these situations happened at my own house where I had a prescription bottle.

But there are situations when the date wants to go back to her place. I tried putting a Cialis in my wallet, but it got crushed. It's a $5 pill! Is there a better way to keep Cialis on my person in case of emergency?

There also pillboxes that go on your keychain.

Just get a pill box. Or you could get a mini keychain version.

If you have a change pocket in your jeans, a pill is usually a good fit.

I use a mini keychain pillbox for my Tylenol pills, and they are extremely durable. I have yet to have a pill get crushed in one, and I've been using it for years now.

The only thing to be aware of with those mini keychain pillboxes is that they are often used for illegal drugs, so you might get a funny look or a question if you're flashing your keychain around all the time. But yes, they metal ones like sacrifix links are bombproof.

You might have something lying around the house you can use: mini Altoids tin, empty Chapstick tube or Carmex pot, tictac box, contact lens case...

Small plastic containers such as this one can often be found in the "travel size" section of drug stores. I use one, with a couple of cotton pads so the pills don't rattle around, for medications I take midday. (Link is for illustration only, don't actually buy that one because it's overpriced. The ones I've seen in stores run about $1 each.)

Oh, I just realized the link I gave was for 25 containers, not one, which means the price would be reasonable...if you needed 25 of them.

My Cialis is packaged in a bubble pack which should be protection enough. Just cut out a pill or two with scissors.

This may be standard with the 5mg "for daily use" version. You can take multiples per DR's orders for one-,time use. Talk to you doc and research what it will cost to see if its feasible for you.

Yeah, get it packaged in a bubble pack then keep one in your wallet.

Yes, the bubble pack should protect it... or keep it with your mints! But that may lead to an awkward situation if you take it earlier by accident!
