Leftover medications


#1

Don’t toss out your unused medications! I was in a long line at the drugstore and saw this poster about turning in your old/unused medications.

The pharmacist said that its especially important for anything hormonal (which obviously a lot of us are taking!) because it messes with the hormones of the fish or animals who drink water.

Walgreens has an easy program (you buy a prepaid envelope) but I’m sure other pharmacies have them too. We need to look out for our future kiddos!

I’d love to add this to the ‘sticky’ post about medications at the top but don’t know how. If anyone does, that would be great.

You can also donate them to your clinic to give them to patients who can’t afford their meds.
