The most frequently asked questions are marked with the symbol Preguntas destacadas

The blister packs are numbered. Why?

Labo’Life’s medicines are sequential, that is, they follow a specific order (sequence) to better respect the cascade of events that occur during the immune response. This means that each capsule has its own composition, following the sequence of the medicine.

The pockets that contain the capsules are numbered on the blister to help the patient avoid mistakes and take the capsules of their medicine in the correct order.

These are the two types of blister packs that are both currently available on the market. The numbers are at the front of the blister packs with capsules in a straight line, whilst numbers are on the back of the blister packs with capsules in a zigzag line. In both cases, the order of the numbers is always from 1 to 10.

Why are the capsules in different colours?

Labo’Life’s medicines are sequential, that is, they follow a specific order (sequence) to better respect the cascade of events that occur during the immune response. This means that each capsule has its own composition. To enable the patient to view this logical order in the sequence and avoid errors when taking their medicine, the capsules are not identical in colours, but rather follow a colour progression.

Also, although all the medicines have 10 capsules in each blister pack, some medicines follow sequences of 10 capsules and others of 5 capsules (repeated twice in the same blister pack). In sequences of 10 capsules, two colour progressions are presented in the same blister pack: blue and, then, red.

I used to have blue capsules, now I have red...

Depending on the medicine, the colour of the capsules changes: some medicines have sequences of red capsules, others have sequences of blue capsules, and some medicines have sequences of blue and red capsules. If you used to have blue capsules and now have red capsules, this is because your treatment has been modified by your doctor, or there was a mistake when dispensing the medicine. You should check the name written on the blister pack and if it does not match your usual treatment, contact your doctor to see if she/he has prescribed another medicine. If this is not the case, contact the dispensing chemist to notify the error.
