May 7th, is asthma awareness day. Out of a family of 5 people, 4 have asthma at varying degrees. I wanted to take the time today to speak about proper medication disposal.
Holding on to used, unused or expired medications including used patches is not a risk worth taking. To prevent theft, problematic use or accidental exposure, drop them off at your local pharmacy for safe disposal. This includes asthma pumps. I hadn’t realize that, because I never saw asthma medication as dangerous.
