I spoke to Abbott Laboratories this morning and they said they have received a lot of complaints about the bottles being too difficult to unscrew and that they were already currently investigating a new cap that would ensure the integrity of the vitamins inside during shipping but easier to open. They were also going to look into the shrink wrap to make it easier to open.
In the meantime, they are mailing to me a special opener that they said patients with arthritis find useful. I did not want to give out your address without your permission. When I receive it, I will ship it to you.
