Extra or unused pain medicines can put children in danger and be deadly. Prescription pain medicines may cause addiction or even death if taken without doctor’s directions. So keep your medicine cabinet safe! Get rid of pain medications that you no longer use!
What can you do to prevent harm from unused medications? You may dispose of extra or expired medicines by dropping them off at a Prescription Drop Box at your local pharmacy or sheriff’s office or following the directions to the right.
