... charity that takes donations of opioids? I would hate to have it destroyed if it can help someone.
Zefram; You might ask the doctor if they know of someone that can't afford to buy them but depending on where you are you don't want to give them to anyone. You and the charity could find yourself in some legal problems. Best is just hold on to them for now. And see if you might need them before they expire. But keep them in a safe place like a dark drawer in your bedroom mixed in with the socks or something. Sorry but better to be safe than sorry. Chuck1957
yes, this is illegal in the US unless a Dr gives it to someone. You might ask your Dr. I know of some who go do charity work in Mexico where regulations are different. If your Dr doesnt know of any Drs who can use the medication it is best to take it to a "drug take back day" at your local pharmacy or fire/police dept, they take the drugs and destroy them properly so they wont get into the wrong hands and diverted to the streets-that is the last thing you want! If your pharmacy doesnt participate in a drug take back program the best thing to do is to destroy them yourself. there are several ways to do this. You can dissolve them in a small amount of water then mix this water/drug mix with kitty litter or used coffee grounds in a coffee can or other water tight container with a lid then throw into the trash. Dont throw them in the toilet or sink because our water can get drug contaminated and our water reclamation doesnt filter out drugs. Dont throw them away whole either because you dont want someone getting them out of the trash and diverting to the street.
