the proper way to store and dispose of meds at home

More reports of fentanyl patch poisoning in children will put the spotlight on the proper way to store and dispose of meds at home.

Storage. Tell patients to store meds in a cool, dry place...NOT in the bathroom or their car. Heat and humidity can damage meds.

Encourage patients to take extra steps when traveling. For example, avoid putting meds in luggage that's going in the car trunk...temperatures can easily get out of range.
