Is anyone else having trouble opening medicine packages? I take over the counter Nexium which I buy at Sam's Club. I'm having so much trouble opening the packages - both the Nexium and the generics. Anyone else?

I have a lot of trouble with those caps where you have to line the arrows up, then pop the cap off because of my fingers. I usually just put the caps back on loosely and don't snap them down because some days I just can't open them.
