A new year is a good reminder to safeguard those prescription medications before guests of all ages visit your home. When family and friends are in your home, continuously monitor your medicines for missing or outdated pills, and never keep leftover prescriptions.
Remove drugs from your medicine cabinet, and be sure to store them away in a safe, locked place. Always remember to properly dispose of any expired or unused medicines.
It is also recommended to keep Naloxone, the medication used to reverse the effects of opioid overdose, in your first-aid kit.
