Medication Protection and Proper Disposal

Points to remember regarding opioid medication:

  1. Monitor: Know where the medications are at all times. Keep a count of how many you have and be on the lookout for “Seekers”.        
  2. Never share that you are prescribed opioid medications with ANYONE outside of your immediate trusted family member(s). 
  3. Secure: Keep this medicine in a locked cabinet or lock box AND out of the reach of children.
