Today, October 26th, is Take Back Drug Day in many communities.  You don't have to let unused medications pile up in your home.   Get rid if them safely.  Check your local city or hospital or pharmacy for a drive-through location.

They also take back sharps.

I read my local newspaper every day.  Take Back Drug Day occurs twice a year, every April and every October, as a community event.  Some pharmacies will accept unused meds any time of year.  I returned some valsartan bp meds which had been recalled due to factory contamination a year or two ago. Unused meds flushed down the toilet will harm sea- life.  Save the whales!
