I was alarmed by the unused medicines lying at the medicine chest at my home. I can imagine the reason, because, many times medicines prescribed are not consumed in full. This is the quantity cleared, usable and not expired during this week-end clean up.
Why not you devote a few minutes during this weekend to clear medicine chest at your home too.
I am sure, you will save some space, avoid children/elders taking medicines already expired.
I am not sure, these days, organisations take in those non-expired medicines that could be reused, if so, it will save money for some needy and come handy to those poor patients.
Any campaigners to take my thoughts, welcome in advance.
