Getting Rid of Excess or Expired Medications

Many people have left-over drugs. Disposing of medications is not always as simple as it seems. Drugs improperly disposed of can pollute the environment and even kill kids or pets rummaging through the trash. Various places have different laws and procedures set up to handle disposing of excess drugs. In the U.S. there are some legal ways of reusing various excess unexpired medications. Certain medications, such as those to treat AIDS and its opportunistic infections, can be collected by specific organizations for distribution overseas into poverty stricken areas. It is not legal in the U.S. to give your excess drugs to other people even if they have a great need for it.
