Some facts about prescription discount drug cards:
Medicine Take-Back ProgramsMedicine take-back programs for disposal are a good way to remove expired, unwanted, or unused medicines from the home and reduce the chance that others may accidentally take the medicine. Contact your city or county government's household trash and recycling service to see if there is a medicine take-back program in your community and learn about any special rules regarding which medicines can be taken back. You can also talk to your pharmacist to see if he or she knows of other medicine disposal programs in your area or visit the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's website for information onNational Prescription Drug Take-Back Events.
Disposal in Household TrashIf no medicine take-back program is available in your area, you can also follow these simple steps to dispose of most medicines in the household trash:1
Mix medicines (do NOT crush tablets or capsules) with an unpalatable substance such as kitty litter or used coffee grounds;Place the mixture in a container such as a sealed plastic bag; andThrow the container in your household trash.Before throwing out your empty pill bottle or other empty medicine packaging, remember to scratch out all information on the prescription label to make it unreadable.
As discount drug card program membership grows, and as discount drug card programs play an ever more important role in providing consumers access to affordable prescription medications in the country, it is appropriate for discount drug card program operators and marketers to adopt voluntary standards that establish appropriate levels of consumer protection and program integrity, and that promote fair competition among discount drug card programs.Towards those ends, the Association of Discount Drug Card Organizations (ADDCO) and its members hereby establish this code of conduct.
