An electrotransport delivery device (10) with a display (14) having only on and off states, and a method of operating the display (14), are provided. Preferably, the display 14 is a light (e.g., a light emitting diode) with lit and unlit states or an audible alarm (e.g., a beeper) with sounding and silent states. The device (10) counts and stores the number of events (e.g., patient initiated drug delivery or sensed patient condition) which occur over a predetermined period of time (e.g., the period of time over which the device is worn by the patient). The event count is displayed by cycling the display (14) between on and off states according to a predetermined regimen which correlates the number of on/off cycles to the number of events. The device and method permit the use of a simple and inexpensive means (e.g., an LED) to display (e.g., to a medical technician) the number of e.g., patient initiated doses delivered over a previous period of therapy.
