A person about to have a stroke often feels like they need to go to the toilet to empty bowels. A lot of stroke victims are found in the toilet according to a friend who is a nurse.
Well here for the last 20 years , working with Hospice workers, we were always told to dispose of the medications down the toilet...Flush them away!Because of exactly the reason you state.As a hospice worker, that is what we did! now it has been soma few years for me, but as of just recently with a sick acquaintance that was still the procedure. It may be it just differs from place to place.. Who knows I just know that that was what we were instructed to do with the meds, especially the tripplicates..etc.
Thanks Paul.. I will look into what the procedure here is these days as I also have some meds to dispose of.. Thanks for follow up information!

Thanks for follow up information!karen, politely i say "bugger the local procedure". Dumping any meds down the drain/toilet is bad. like drugs, don't do it, pop them in to your local pharmacy
Where did you go Paul! Do you think this breaks down the chemicals in the meds!
