Racetrack Packaging

Racetrack Packaging
Syntex, Inc. also provided Norinyl in a Wallette package, which placed 21 oral contraceptive pills in a "racetrack" design to insure that pills were taken in the correct order. Below the racetrack was a row of seven inert pills so women could take a pill every day, making it easier to remember.
