Title: Device for storing and for reminding and / or recording the intake of drugs

Abstract: The invention relates to a device for storing and for reminding/recording the intake of drugs, arranged in a drug packaging, which is designed as individual packaging segments, which form individual pockets, holding individual drug dosages (tablets, pills, powder dosages, liquid dosages), and which are made of foil and lie in succession in the longitudinal direction. The drug packaging is guided in the device and can be transported by means of a feed in the device. The device 1 exhibits guide elements, which are arranged along the line of a peripheral guide track 6; and there are drive elements, by means of which the drug packaging 2 can be fed incrementally to a removal-ejecting mechanism 5, in which a drug dosage can be ejected through a removal window 7 at essentially right angles to the guide track 6 by means of an ejecting element.
