I have a lot of medication left over from my cycle. My Gonal-f and trigger is gone but I have lots of clexane, buserilin and luverus (sp?) and about a hundred syringes and needles.Do I just bring it all back to the pharmacy? It's all paid for but I have no use for it now and I can't give my prescribed meds to anyone else.
You have to take any unused medication to the pharmacy so they can dispose of it properly, unfortunately they can't reuse it once it has left the premises
They don't use it even if the seal is intact? What a waste of money. The clexane for example is in a pre-loaded syringe in a tamper proof wrapper.
I'm 99% certain they can't, I used to work in a pharmacy years ago and they just had to go straight in the specific bin. It is a waste!
It's true, once they've left the premises, they can't be used even if the seal is intact. The local surgery/ pharmacy can dispose of them safely.
Well I suppose they need to be 100% sure when they're handing out medications and the only way is to use only stock that has never left their building. I'll drop it all back tomorrow.Thanks.
