The Cause Of The Drug Must Be Diluted Before Disposal?
I want to ask, why is there a medicine that needs to be diluted before being disposed of?
Hello Dinda, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Every drug that is produced and sold, whether free or through a prescription, has a recommended disposal method. In fact there are several types of drugs that have their own rules in disposing, one of which is diluted where it aims to damage the drug content in it so that when disposed of it can not be used again by parties who are not responsible and does not cause damage to the environment when the drug is discarded.
If you want to dispose of medicines that do not have specific rules for disposal, you can try to do the following recommendations such as:
Separating the drug to be disposed of with other drugs Avoid destroying drugs in the form of tablets or capsules when they are to be disposed of but mix with other materials that can be absorbed by the drug such as coffee grounds, animal dung, soil, etc. After that, put it in a bag plastic sealed and put it in the trash If you want to dispose of drugs that come from a doctor's prescription, cross out / erase all your identity and also the rules of use before disposal. Hope it helps.
