The Zepatier® Medication Package promotes patient medication adherence using a custom Dosepak design that integrates a calendared blister clearly labeled by day on each individual pill cavity, highlighting the two week dosing regimen (2 two-week packages make up a monthly supply of Zepatier). Visual cues prompt medication taking and tracking. A 5/6th panel provides space for medication information, dosing instructions, and how to navigate the calendar. In addition, branding for Merck / Zepatier is easily seen on the outer package’s readable, flat space.

“WestRock and Merck partnered to design the Zepatier package to help HCV patients adhere to their medication,” said John Grinnell, VP, Sales, Health, Beauty, & Adherence, WestRock. Packaging is the one tool that stays with the patient throughout the medication journey, making it uniquely effective in providing regimen support.”
