I left my medication out of the fridge accidentally, is it still okay to use?
Most of our liquid medications are stored refrigerated for flavor purposes only. If your bottle is labeled with an auxiliary label that says “may refrigerate,” refrigeration is not required for stability. If your bottle is labeled with an auxiliary label that says “refrigerate,” it is best to call the pharmacy at 503-352-3811 to confirm stability after a period of unrefrigerated storage.
What is the proper way to dispose of unwanted medication?
- Unwanted and unused drugs may be dropped at some police and sheriff stations.
- Unwanted medications may also be brought to a hazardous waste facility or collection event in your area.
- If you must dispose of the medication at home, the best way to do so is to fill a ziplock bag with kitty litter or coffee grounds and dump the medication into the ziplock bag. The ziplock bag containing the grounds/litter and medication can then be disposed of in your regular garbage.
- If you have non-expired medication that you no longer need, you may be able to donate it to a veterinary clinic. It is best to check with the clinic beforehand to see if they are able to accept your donation.
Is it possible to return an unused compounded medication for a refund?
Due to the custom-made nature of compounded medications, we are unable to accept returns and cannot offer refunds on medications once compounding has been performed.
