Do you have unwanted or unused medications around your home? I think every household at some point probably does. Whether it’s expired OTC (over the counter) medications, or prescribed medications that are no longer needed, most of us at some point will find ourselves with medications we need to dispose of. The question is, how?
I myself was in this position a couple of years ago. I had just taken over as my Mom’s Power of Attorney, and we had to help her move out of her home and into a different level of care. As we packed up her belongings, I found myself separating bottles and bubble packs full of unused and expired medications. Her medications were automatically sent to her. Unfortunately, though, oftentimes there would be days that she would forget to take her medications, and they added up quickly.
