How to store pain medications

Now I know that this post has nothing to do with skin care, but it is in the best interest of public safety.

It is not uncommon for one to receive a prescription for narcotic pain medication after having a procedure. In fact, often, one does not finish all of the medication. But, what does one do with them?

Prescription narcotics is one of the biggest when it comes to drug abuse, especially among teens. It is essential to keep narcotics in a secure, locked location. Often one does not finish them and leaves the bottle in an unsecured location for many months or years. This is not recommended.

Even if your kids are all grown and out of the house, do you have grandchildren or other teenagers or young adults visiting?

Be safe.
