<p class="MsoNormal">Leftover medicines lingering in our homes are both a public health threat and an environmental concern.&nbsp; Improper disposal of medicines by flushing contributes to the serious problem of pharmaceutical pollution in the environment.&nbsp; Public
 awareness has significantly improved in the last few years that leftover medicines
<u>should not be flushed</u> or <u>should not be thrown in the household trash</u>.&nbsp; Medicine take-back programs are the safest way to get rid of unwanted medications, protecting our families and our waterways.&nbsp; However, the public is confused by conflicting
 messages on medicine disposal coming from the FDA, the DEA, the EPA.<o></o></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="color:red;">Please join our effort to stop&nbsp; the FDA’s ongoing recommendation to flush certain medicines down toilets or drains.

http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm101653.htm</a>&nbsp; that lists medicines that should be flushed, and also does not clearly recommend the use of medicine take-back programs.<o></o></p>
