It is well known that people tend to keep unused or expired medications in their homes. It is important to recognize that some medications might not be as effective after the expiration date. Below are some tips to keep your medicine cabinet safe:
- Check the Date – discard expired medicines
- Examine Medicines – discard any with changed color or smell
- Toss Unmarked Containers – keep medicine in original containers to avoid mistakes
- Store in a Cool Dry Place – keep away from children and changing temperatures
ACTION: Follow the 1-year rule: Properly dispose of any prescription that is over a year old.
