Deshágase de la medicina de forma segura

Si usted ha terminado un tratamiento con medicina recetada y aún le quedan algunas pastillas/comprimidos o si tiene en casa cualquier medicina recetada que ya no usa — es muy importante deshacerse de ella de forma segura. Lo mejor que puede hacer es traerla a una caja dispensadora o a un evento para recolectar medicina que ya no usa.

Use esta lista para ver cómo puede deshacerse de las medicinas o de los deshechos médicos.

La mayoría de las medicinas recetadas para el dolor se conocen como substancias controladas y son muy adictivas, especialmente si no se usan correctamente. Para deshacerse de medicinas recetadas para el dolor, asegúrese que el lugar donde va a llevar la medicina acepta substancias controladas.

Usted también puede deshacerse de forma segura de las agujas, en “ENCORE” intercambio de agujas (ENCORE Needle Exchange) (localizado en 557 Broad Street, Providence, RI, 02907 – número de teléfono: 401-781-0665).
