Why you need to dispose of your drugs?

Taking a drug not intended for you (or one taken by your child accidentally) could mean a trip to the emergency room—and can even prove deadly. Of particular concern are leftover opioids—narcotic painkillers such as Oxycontin, Percocet, and Vicodin.

Example medicines recommended for MedSafe disposal are antibiotics you didn’t finish, old doses of medication left over when your doctor changed your dosage or took you off of, etc.

Dan Budnitz, M.D., M.P.H., director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Medication Safety Program, suggests doing a yearly inventory of what’s in your medicine cabinet and discarding unused meds. Doing so will cut down on the risk of someone misusing a medication in your home—and not just young children, but teenagers, too.

When it comes time to clean out the cabinet or drawer, you might be tempted to just toss pills or other drugs into the trash. Pills can easily be fished out of the garbage by children and pets, so you’ll want to take safer precautions instead.

Stop by Comprehensive Wellness Pharmacy, and take advantage of their Medsafe disposal receptacle, or ask their pharmacists about your medications. They are located at 495 Dunlop Lane, Suite 106, or visit www.cwpcares.com
