97.5 Y Country Medical Minute – Safely Dispose of Prescription Medications

97.5 Y Country Medical Minute – Safely Dispose of Prescription Medications

Spring is a great time to not only do some spring cleaning but also to go through your cupboards including the medicine cabinet. The week’s Y-Country Medical Minute quickly discusses how to safely dispose of prescription medications.

Is your medicine cabinet full of expired medications or ones you no longer use? When your doctor writes a prescription, it is specifically for you. What’s safe for you might be harmful to someone else. Did you know you can dispose of your expired, unwanted, or unused medications safely through a drug take-back program?

Sponsored by the US Drug Enforcement Administration, National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is on Saturday, April 28th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There are several locations right here in southwest Michigan that are participating in the take-back day. Click here for a list of take-back sites in southwest Michigan or for a full list of locations go to the DEA National Prescription Drug Take-Back website.
