Unused Migraine Medications - Safe Disposal Opportunity

Teri Robert @trobert Health Guide
  • We know all too well about having Migraine or headache medications sitting around that we're not going to use. The trial and error of finding what works for us can leave us with bottles of meds that we don't know what to do with.


    Pharmacies can't take medications back. We can't even give them to our doctors to give to other patients because that's illegal. Flushing meds or putting them in the trash pose potential safety and health hazards.


    This is where the National Take-Back Initiative comes in. On April 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local agencies and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its sixth opportunity in three years to safely dispose of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
