Livre-se dos medicamentos

Se você tiver terminado com um medicamento prescrito e ainda tiver comprimidos, ou se tiver alguma receita não utilizada em casa , é importante se livrar deles com segurança . A melhor coisa a fazer é levá-los a uma caixa de descarte de drogas ou evento de devolução.

Use esta lista para ver como se livrar de medicamentos ou resíduos médicos.

A maioria dos analgésicos prescritos é chamada de substâncias controladas porque são muito viciantes – especialmente se não forem usadas corretamente. Para se livrar dos analgésicos prescritos, verifique se o local de descarte de medicamentos que você está visitando aceita substâncias controladas.

Você também pode descartar com segurança as agulhas na ENCORE Needle Exchange (localizada na 557 Broad Street, Providence, RI, 02907 – telefone: 401-781-0665).
