Medicines help treat diseases, manage chronic conditions, and improve health and well-being for millions of Americans. It is important that patients take their medicines as prescribed by their health care provider and as indicated on the label or packaging. It is also important to be sure to store medicines securely to prevent accidental ingestion or misuse by others, especially children.
There are a number of ways to dispose of expired or unwanted medicines. To protect your privacy, patients are reminded to remove all personally identifiable information on medication labels or packaging before disposing of unwanted medicines.
For additional information on the program, MED-Project has developed an educational toolkit which includes the materials below.
