Cleaning Up the Medicine Cabinet Springs around the corner, so why not start your “spring cleaning” in your medicine cabinet? Here are some quick tips for keeping your cabinet clutter free and safe.

• Check all your medications and throw away any that have expired. • If your over-the-counter medicines have expired, make a list for your next trip to the pharmacy.

• Reduce clutter by throwing out near empty bottles which do not contain enough medicine for a full dose. You may also want to check the label for any refills left on the medication. • Check to be sure you have all medications stored properly and dispose of those that are not since they can lose their effectiveness and sometimes become dangerous. • If you have any questions about storing or replacing medicines, check with your pharmacist. They will be happy to answer any questions you may have. • Sunscreen expires too! Check the expiration date and add it to your list for the pharmacy if it needs replaced. Cleaning you medicine cabinet each year will enable you to find medicines quickly, have the medicines you need when you need them, and will prevent having ineffective, expired medications in your cabinet.
