Many people with disabilities are prescribed strong medications. Sometimes these medications are never used and are just sitting around your home. Having these unused medications sitting around can be a serious safety issue as these medications may be misused or abused. Flushing the medication or just throwing it away can lead to contamination of the water supply.
So what can you do?
Any local pharmacy should be able to assist you in ridding your home of expired or unused prescriptions. So take a moment to go through your medicine cabinet, inventory what’s there, and begin taking the steps to make your home as safe as possible.
