Using Medications Safely

Prescription drugs can help us live healthier lives when used under the supervision of a healthcare professional. But when misused, these medications can potentially cause significant harm.

Students can follow several simple rules for using medications safely:

  1. Only use medications as they are prescribed for YOU, and don’t share your medications with others.
  2. Store your medications in a secure location where others don’t have access to them.
  3. Properly dispose of medications when you no longer need them.

Some of the prescription drugs which are commonly misused can also lead to dependence or addiction, and drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the U.S. (CDC).
