Storing your medications properly is important. Proper storage can prevent accidental poisoning and ensure that your meds are working as expected.
After getting your medications from our retail pharmacy in Menifee, California, be sure to keep these things in mind:
- Follow the instructions for storing your meds.
You can find these instructions on the label. You can also visit a pharmacy in California about storage instructions or further clarifications.
In most cases, you need to place your meds inside a cool, dry place. Avoid placing them in a bathroom cabinet as moisture will only damage your meds.
- Ensure the safety of your children or your pets.
Little children can suffer from overdose and poisoning. The same goes for pets, too. So, make sure to store your medications in areas they cannot easily reach, find, or access. It will be best to store them in cabinets with locks or latches.
- Always check the expiration dates.
Expired meds are less potent and may even be dangerous to your health. Rummage through your medicine kits for expired ones and get rid of them properly.
