Promote the Next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day! Access ISMS’ Patient Educational Flyers
Posted on: 9/26/2019

Get the word out to your patients about the next National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day being held on October 26, sponsored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

Proper disposal ensures that unused or expired medications will not get diverted or cause harm to the environment. 

Pop quiz for patients

Ask your patients if they know how many partial bottles of unused medication or expired medication they have in their medicine cabinet right now.

Download ISMS' patient flyers promoting the Take Back Day and hand out to patients, post on your practice website, share via social media, or hang in your exam rooms.

You can also help patients locate a convenient authorized collection site where they can dispose of prescription drugs year-round.

Whether unused or expired drugs are sitting in home medicine cabinets or inside medical facilities, the frontline battle of the opioid epidemic is preventing prescription drugs from getting diverted

IMPORTANT: It is unlawful for physicians to take custody of prescription medications for the purpose of disposal unless they are licensed collectors.
