Color-Coded Pills

Color-Coded Pills
Berlex Laboratories, Inc. packaged its sequential Tri-Levlen 28 pill in three different doses and hormone combinations, to more closely mimic a woman's menstrual cycle. Each type of pill was a different color and had to be taken in sequence as the arrows on the package directed. This 1988 package features a sliding cover.
