Elapse / Medicine

Elapse
Elapse

In daily life, medicines curing such maladies as cold and gastroenteritis are stored at home for emergency needs. However, because of long storage and the difficulty recognizing the best-before date, some of them may lose effect, and people may take them by mistake.
Printed with automatic fading ink, the information on the tag will gradually fade as time goes by, until nothing but a ‘blank’ tag can be seen when the tablets are expired. Seeing the label without any information, even careless patients are able to easily tell the overdue medicine without the trouble searching for the guarantee period, which is especially helpful for the aged.
