#SafeMeds Twitter Chat

Date: March 25th, 2016

This is a transcript of the #SafeMedsChat held on March 23, 2016.

Every day, millions of Americans turn to over-the-counter medications to treat their pain, colds, fevers, stomach upset, and more. But these same medications can cause harm if they aren't taken safely. These resources walk viewers through:

  • Choosing the appropriate OTC pain medication
  • Taking it safely and according to directions
  • Storing it Up and Away and out of sight of little ones
  • Disposing of it when they no longer want it

Three pocket films, a patient quiz, and links to other important resources are included.
