Bring them to your pharmacy!
Your pharmacist owner affiliated to the Jean Coutu network is happy to provide you with health services tailored to your needs.
Not only does expired medication lose its effectiveness, it can also be harmful to your health. Medication that’s unlabelled or left for years in the medicine cabinet can easily be misused. To avoid unpleasant surprises, be sure to clean out your medicine cabinet at least once or twice a year.
All medication comes with an expiry date printed on the label. If the expiry date on your medication is different from what’s indicated on the pharmacy label, the latter is the reference as it has been verified by your pharmacist.
You should know what all your medication is used for. If in doubt, check with your pharmacist.
Don’t throw unwanted medication in the garbage or flush it down the toilet! This can be a public health and environmental hazard. Your pharmacist will deliver any expired or unneeded medication to a specialized company that will safely dispose of it in a way that respects the environment.
Used or unwanted syringes and needles can cause injury. To avoid accidents, make sure to place them in a disposal container designed for this purpose, which you can pick up at your pharmacy’s prescription counter. Just bring the container back to the pharmacy when it’s full so your pharmacist can safely dispose of its contents.
The use of medication in too high doses can lead to intoxication that is potentially dangerous to health. Find out how to avoid it.
Whether or not your medications are prescribed, they should never be taken at the same time unless your doctor or pharmacist gives you the green light.
Taking your medication effectively and following your pharmacist’s instructions isn’t always easy. Here are a few tips to help you meet this challenge.
