Do you have extra medication at home that you no longer use or is expired? Now is your time. Saturday, April 26 is take-back-medicine-day!
Which medicine should you take back?
- ANY you are no longer using or needing.
- It is especially important to safely dispose of controlled pain (like opioids) or anxiety medicine. Often when a patient has surgery, they are prescribed pain prescription pain medicine. If medication is left over, friends or family (your teenagers?!) have access to pain medicine that may lead to addiction. Be responsible. Dispose of the medication safely.
