National Community Pharmacists Association and Purdue Pharma Urge Americans to Safeguard Rx Medicines This Holiday Season
Date:12/5/2012

lly vulnerable, high-traffic areas.

Belcher points out that there are several easy steps that can be taken to protect prescription medicines, including:

  • Use a locked storage container to store prescription medicines at greater risk of being abused – pain relievers, tranquilizers, stimulants and depressants. These medicines are targets for theft by anyone who enters your home, so extra precautions should be taken.
  • Keep track of medications with the Medicine Inventory Sheet – one is available on www.SafeguardMyMeds.org.
  • Take inventory of prescription medicines at least twice a year, such as when you change your clocks in the spring and fall.

Go to www.SafeguardMyMeds.org to access additional information on safe medicine storage through downloadable print, video, and online materials. Visitors are also encouraged to take the Personal Responsibility Pledge and make a commitment to safeguard their prescription medicine.

About the Survey
The survey was conducted by Opinion Research Corporation – Infogroup/ORC, a national research firm on behalf of the National Community Pharmacists Association and Purdue Pharma to assess knowledge and behavior about prescription medicine safety and disposal. Telephone interviews among a projectable national sample of 1,010 adults, including 503 men and 507 women 18 years of age and older, living in private households in the continental United States, were conducted between August 27-30, 2010. The margin of error for results based on the entire sample of 1,010 is plus or minus three percentage points.
