What's the right way to get rid of unused prescriptions? Toss it? Flush it? As many seniors find themselves with left over medicines following a change in prescription or diagnosis, you're left with the question of what to do with the unused prescriptions.
There are 3 options: toss it in the trash; flush it; or save it for a medicine take-back program in your community. Which you choose depends on the prescription. The safest is the community take-back program where the drugs are disposed of correctly for you.
And don't forget to remove all your personal information off the prescription bottle before you toss it!
