Safe Medication Storage and Disposal

Medication must be stored properly to remain effective, and to protect you and the people you love. Be sure to follow the instructions on the packaging and follow these tips:

  • If your medication needs to be kept cool, put it on a clean shelf or drawer in the refrigerator
  • Don’t store medications and supplies with other household items or food
  • Keep all medications and supplies out of the reach of children and pets

If you no longer need a particular medication, or if it expires, be sure to dispose of it properly. This website will give you the information you need for safe medication disposal: FDA.
