Disposing of Unused Medications

October 25, 2016

Q:  Where can patients safely dispose of unused medications?

 

A:  Walgreens has developed a new programs to help curb the misuse of medications and reduce the rise in overdose deaths. With this, Walgreens has installed safe medication disposal kiosks in over 500 pharmacies across 35 states.  These medication disposal kiosks provide a safe and convenient way to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medication at no cost, year-round.

 

Kiosks are currently available during regular pharmacy hours and offer one of the best ways to ensure medications are not accidentally used or intentionally misused by someone else.  For more information, click here.  For information on Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) guidelines on drug disposal, please click here.
