Time to Clean Out Your Medicine Cabinet

Jason Serna with TTUHSC School of Pharmacy joined KLBK ThIs Mornings Brittany Escobar to talk about properly disposing medicine.
With colder weather upon us, many may begin to catch winter colds.

Medical experts say don't forget to clean out your medicine cabinet before those winter ailments.

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy's Texas Panhandle Poison Center will host a Medication Cleanout from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, October 26th at the Texas Tech Physicians Medical Pavilion at 3601 4th Street.

The event will be conducted using a drive-thru, drop-off format and signs will be posted.

Medications must be in their original containers.

Flushing or throwing old medications into the trash may contaminate the environment, pollute drinking and ground water and harm aquatic animals.
