Prescription Drugs: Smart Moves
Keep them in a safe place
Store your meds in a secure place while taking them or until you can return them. Most importantly, do not leave them in the medicine cabinet, where they can be easily accessed.
Do not throw them out
Prescription drugs don’t vanish just because you throw them into the trash or flush them down the toilet. They can pollute the water supply and harm wildlife.
