Once in the program, you’re offered a comprehensive medication review. It includes several steps:


  1. A pharmacist reviews all of your medications to see if there are any drug therapy issues.

  2. If needed, a pharmacist will work with your doctor to resolve any drug therapy issues.

  3. The pharmacist will talk with you over the phone or in person at your local pharmacy. They’ll review your current drugs (both prescription and over-the-counter) and your medical conditions. This will take about 30 minutes.

  4. The pharmacist will give you a drug list and a recommended to do list to help you manage your medications. Be sure to share this information with your doctor.

Information for safe drug disposal


Drugs that are safe for you may be harmful to someone else. Unused and expired drugs should be disposed of as soon as possible. You can discard your unused, unwanted or expired drugs through a community safe disposal program or even at home for certain drugs.  


Locating a community safe drug disposal site


The best way to safely dispose your drugs is at a drug take back site. To find drug take back sites nearest you, visit the website below and enter your location:


You can also call your pharmacy or local law enforcement (non-emergency number) for a safe drug disposal site near you. Some pharmacies offer on-site drop-off boxes, mail-back programs, and other ways to help you safely dispose of your unused drugs.


Mailing medications to accepting drug disposal sites


The United States Drug Enforcement Administration allows prescription drugs to be mailed back to select pharmacies or authorized sites using approved packages. Information on these sites can be found at


Safe at-home drug disposal


You can safely dispose of many drugs at home through household trash or by flushing them down the toilet. To determine best way to dispose your drugs, please visit the following website:


If you are disposing drugs in household trash, follow these recommendations:

  • Remove labels to protect your personal information
  • Mix medications with undesirable substances, such as dirt or used coffee grounds
  • Place mixture in a sealed container, such as an empty margarine tub

We’ll complete a targeted medication review (TMR) at least once every three months. After each review, we may send suggestions to your doctor about prescriptions that may be a safer or better alternative. As always, your doctor will decide whether to consider our suggestions. Your prescriptions won’t change unless you and your doctor decide to change them.
