The safest place to store medicine is out of the sight and reach of children. This can be a high cabinet or closet, and it should be locked at all times.
Keep Medicine Away From Children
Kids have a way of getting into everything. But you might not always think about the things in your medicine cabinet that could cause them harm. That’s why it’s essential to purchase medicine with child-resistant packaging. And it’s not just the stuff you keep in your medicine cabinet—curious children will snoop around in purses, jacket pockets, handbags, wallets, glove compartments, and other places people typically keep their medicines.
You can’t just rely on child-resistant packaging, either. To help ensure you don’t wind up with an accidental overdose on your hands, keep your medicine out of reach of your little explorers. Here are some helpful tips:
Store medicine in a locked cabinet.
Use child-resistant caps for added security.
Keep medicine in its original container.
Never leave medicine out.
Discard medicine carefully.
Never refer to medicine as candy.
Unpack and store medicine first.
