If you want to dispose of unused medications you should follow these suggestions:

• DO NOT FLUSH unused medications and DO NOT POUR them down a sink or drain.
• When discarding unused medications in your trash:
 Pour them into a sealable plastic bag. If medication is a solid (pill, liquid capsule, etc.), ass water to dissolve it.
 Add kitty litter, sawdust, coffee grounds (or any material that mixes with the medication to make it less appealing to pets and children to eat) in a bag.
 Seal the plastic bag and put it in the trash.
 Remove all and destroy ALL personal information (prescription label) from all medication containers before recycling them or throwing them away.
