You go to the doctor, where he or she writes you a prescription.  You fill your prescription at the local pharmacy and head home.  You take the prescription as needed – sometimes using it all, sometimes having pills leftover.  So, what do you do with the prescription drugs when you don’t use them all?  Normally, I would say you throw them away in the trashcan outside so they are outside of the reach of little ones.  I never thought about the potential for abuse of the medications after I dispose of them!

Did you know that approximately 6.8 million Americans abuse prescription drugs and 70,000 children are hospitalized each year from accidental poisoning or prescription drug overdose?  The disposal of unwanted and expired prescription drugs creates an equally serious dilemma.  How does it do this?  Well, lacking a cheap and convenient option, many of us simply throw our unwanted medications in the trash or flush them down the toilet, contaminating landfill and municipal water supplies.

April 26th is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.  The purpose of this day is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.  You can check back on April 1st on the site to find out about collection sites near you.  So, how are you supposed to dispose of your unwanted medications?

“National Prescription Take-Back Days have been extremely successful in removing an estimated 3.4-million pounds of unwanted and expired drugs. Take-Back Days are scheduled several times a year at over 5,000 Take-Back sites across the country. Complimentary to these Take-Back Days, Pill Terminator offers inexpensive and quick safe disposal everyday and everywhere at the convenience of the user. The next National Prescription Take-Back Day is slated for April 26, 2014,” adds Doman.

    It’s a good concept but I wonder at what happens down the road when it ends up whereever the *trash* ends up. I do worry about meds in our water supply.

    I used to throw mine in the garbage too, never considering that someone might abuse them later on! #Client
