After cleaning out your medicine cabinet, you may have a collection of expired and unused medications. What do you do with them? Don’t throw them in the garbage or flush them down the toilet! Instead, return them to the pharmacy.
Has your doctor changed your medication and you have leftovers of your old prescription? Has your back pain improved, but you still have pain pills left? What do you do with all that unused or expired medication? Return it to your pharmacy!
To protect the public and the environment, many pharmacies participate in a medications return program. All returned medications are destroyed by a specialized company with strict adherence to environmental standards.
Getting rid of medications safely and in an environmentally friendly way is also a way to protect your health.
