How to Get Rid of Asthma in a Safe Way

It’s important to properly dispose of expired or unused medications, pills, and epinephrine auto-injectors. They can be dangerous to people who haven’t been treated, particularly children. Alternatively, they might fall into the possession of someone who might abuse them. And improper disposal will result in them ending up in the water supply, posing a health risk to humans. You can dispose of your medications in several ways that are both healthy and environmentally friendly.

How to Get Rid of Inhalers

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that you read this article before discarding inhalers “On the branding of inhalers and aerosol products, there are handling instructions. If punctured or thrown into a fire or incinerator, these items may be hazardous. Contact your nearest garbage and recycling facility to properly dispose of these items while adhering to local regulations and rules.”

Disposing of Pills and Patches

Designated law enforcement agencies across the U.S. will allow you to drop off expired, unused prescription pills and patches so they can be safely disposed of.

The agencies can only accept prescription drugs in the form of pills, tablets, capsules, patches, or other strong types. Needles, sharps, inhalers, liquids, and illicit substances are not permitted. This includes liquid nebulizer medicine and auto-injectors for epinephrine.

Medicine drop boxes are available at several pharmacy chains. Find out what kinds of medications the pharmacy accepts by contacting them.

Disposing of Liquids

For instructions on how to dispose of liquid medicines, such as children’s antihistamines and nebulizer medicines, contact your pharmacy. Liquid medications are also accepted at Infinity Medical Care.
