Proper Disposal of Unused Medications Is Essential

Medications are an essential part of healthy living and healing. However, in the wrong hands, medications can be dangerous and even lethal, even in small doses. Flushing down the toilet or sink may seem the simple way to go, but there are better, safer ways. We know meds should be stored in a safe place to keep them out of the wrong hands; unused meds should immediately be disposed of for the same reason.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recommendations for disposing of old, unused, unwanted, and expired medications; you can read about them here. On Saturday, October 26, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, several locations will be collecting unwanted medications. Click here to read their informative flyer and find a location near you. For your convenience, home pickup service is also available.

Medications may include things you might not have considered, such as prescription and over-the-counter solid medications, i.e. tablets and capsules; liquid medications, inhalers, creams, ointments, nasal sprays; and pet medications. A list of Bucks County dropoff locations follows.

Planning for End-of-Life Issues


Preparing to Cross the Finish Line


Since the beginning of time, humans have pondered end-of-life issues. Over 200 years ago, Benjamin Franklin wrote, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." And where is he now? Woody Allen famously said, “I'm not afraid of death; I just don't want to be there when it happens.”

Mr. Franklin was right; however, we know when taxes are due, but we don’t necessarily know when the Grim Reaper will show up. And Mr. Allen aside, we will be there when it happens, and so will those we leave behind. It behooves us, as a kindness to our loved ones, to plan for that final appointment.

Death is an unpleasant subject but it stalks everyone, from infants to centenarians. It can come without warning, so the time to prepare is now, especially if you or your loved one has heartfelt wishes for how the final years are spent.
