Don’t know if you ever found a “hack” to tiny pills with trembling hands issue, but here is a sure fire fix. It worked great for me. Go on Amazon and search pill counter trays. I paid $8.00 for mine. These are small plastic trays with built up edges. What you are looking for is one that has an open end in one corner and then a long recessed half circular edge on the other side. This circular edge will have a clear lid that folds and closes over the tray part of the 1/2 circle. One end of this circular feature is closed and one is open. Most will have a spatula included. Pour some pills on to the tray. Use the spatula or your finger to move the pills you need out of the open corner and into a cup or something similar. Move the ones you don’t need into the “circular side and close the cover. The circular side has a funnel shaped opening, dump the extra pills you didn’t need back into your medicine bottle. Take the cup with the pill or pills you needed and tip the cup into your mouth; have your water or other beverage ready and wash them down. Works perfect, no more spilled pills. Before I tried this I lost 1 pill for every 10 I got in my mouth.

For those following along, he’s referring to a 2015 post I wrote entitled “Hack needed: Tiny pills, trembling hands.” It is one of the most popular pages on my site of all time and the comment thread is a fabulous example of practical, peer to peer advice.
