Prescription Drug Take Back Day is TOMORROW

The next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, April 29. 

Health and safety officials urge Iowans to take advantage of its many benefits, including safely disposing leftover medicine, preventing prescription drug theft, misuse and addiction, protecting the environment, and saving lives.

Opioid pain relievers are among the most misused and abused medicines prescribed in Iowa, often leading to addiction, overdose or death.

More than 100 Iowa sites will accept leftover medicine between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. tomorrow. 

During previous Prescription Drug Take Back Days, Iowans have safely disposed of nearly 39 tons of obsolete medicine.
