Throw Out Old or Expired Medicines

Throw Out Old or Expired Medicines

Before we even deny it, we’ve all had a stockpile of medicine lying somewhere around our homes we could use for when we get sick. They’re there as emergency countermeasures, so when a kid, sibling, or parent gets sick, we won’t have to come unnecessarily to a pharmacy in California.

It’s is always good to prepare for these things. However, when’s the last time you checked and cleaned out your medicine cabinet, purse, or storage? If you can’t remember, then it’s probably been too long, and some of your stock might almost or already are expired. You need to get a fresh batch of your stock medicines, not just a refill prescription.

Before you hesitate to toss out your stockpile, you need to understand that the medicines you have will lose effectivity over time. There are even medicines that may become toxic and cause severe damage when taken. Case in point – tetracycline – which can cause kidney damage when expired.

Now is the time to check on your stockpile of medicines, and throw out those past their expiration dates. You’ll be saving a lot of money in the long run if you get new medications from a retail pharmacy in Los Angeles, California, like Campus Pharmacy. Do you have any questions? Don’t hesitate to contact us at 310-208-2340,.
