Lock Up Your Meds

by SKHC Editor on November 8, 2011

Year after year thousands of children are hospitalized, or even die, from taking medicine that is not intended for them. To a toddler those colorful pills may resemble candy. To a teen prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs could be the big hit at a party.

Prescription and OTC medicine can be as harmful as using illegal drugs. Take a preventative measure and lock up your prescription and OTC drugs. Check out this Consumer Update video from FDA pharmacist Connie Jung for more info:

I have seen this awesome product called ‘The lockingcap” that you can put your meds in
and dial in a combination to keep everyone out! Should be a must for every home with
kids! It has reset features, as well, in case you need to change the combo. I think their
website is ‘thelockingcap.com’
