Medicines help treat diseases, manage chronic conditions, and improve health and well-being for millions of Americans. It’s vitally important that patients take their medicines as prescribed by their health care provider and as indicated on the label or packaging. It’s also important to be sure to store medications and sharps securely to prevent accidental ingestion or misuse by others in your household, especially children.
There are a number of ways to dispose of expired or Unwanted Medicines and Sharps. To protect your privacy, consumers are reminded to remove all personally identifiable information on prescription labels or materials of Unwanted Medicines before using any of the available disposal options.
For additional information on the program, MED-Project has developed an educational toolkit, including:
