Student Health Center's unused medication round-up
Putting unused medications down the toilet or in the trash pollutes waterways and landfills. Keeping unused or expired drugs on hand contributes to prescription drug misuse and abuse.
Instead, put empty unused pills into in zip-close bags and bring them to the special disposal bin in the Student Health Center lobby near the pharmacy from 8 a.m. - 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday from April 1-30.
Items accepted include: prescription and over-the-counter-pills and capsules, liquid medications, including ointments, lotions and creams (in sealed containers please), veterinary medications, vitamins, supplements, homeopathic remedies, medical patches, inhalers (empty) and medical samples. No sharps accepted.
Please join the Student Health Center and Student Health Advisory Committee in their April environmental collaboration with the Sonoma County Safe Medicine Disposal Program. Remember, any medication can have side effects and/or interact adversely with other drugs and alcohol. Taking the wrong dose, self-treating or taking leftover medications is hazardous.
Sharing prescription drugs is dangerous and illegal.
