Safe Storage

What’s Safe?

 

Prescription medication is secured from the time it leaves the manufacturer until the time it’s dispensed at a pharmacy. At that point it becomes our responsibility to safely store medication at home.

More Safe Storage Tips

  • Make sure visitors keep their medicine out of sight.
  • Store medication as directed. Usually that means a cool dry place, not a kitchen or bathroom  where things can get hot and humid. But sometimes they need to be refrigerated. Ask your  pharmacist if you’re unsure.
  • Always use the original container the medicine came in. Make sure the label remains attached and  all child-resistant caps are secured.
  • Do not combine medications into one bottle.
