As you may already know, the misuse of prescription drugs is illegal. Because your dentist might prescribe prescription drugs after extensive dental treatment, we care about keeping the medications out of the wrong hands. So, to help you keep your medications to yourself, our team recommends that you do the following things:

Communicate with your family and friends
Help your family members and friends by explaining the dangers of misusing prescribed medications. Tell them that taking someone else’s pills is illegal and it can be extremely addicting, dangerous, and even lethal. It’s best to avoid the temptation at all costs.

Keep the medicine in a secure place
Do your best to keep the medication in a safe, secure, and unpredictable place. Better yet, keep it in a locked drawer or cabinet and hide the key where no one will find it. This will help keep your medicine safe.

Monitor the pills
Keep track of how many pills you take and how many you have left. It’s also important to remember how many refills you have. If you keep track of this information, you will know when someone is stealing your medication.
