Unless you're taking a drug your healthcare provider prescribed just for you, you won't know if it's safe for your body.
Doctors examine you before prescribing a drug. That way they can see if your body can handle the drug, dosage, and the serious side effects. So unless you're taking a prescription under the supervision of a doctor, you have no way of knowing if it's safe for you.

MONITOR your prescription drugs by controlling access, monitoring quantity, and tracking refills.
SECURE all medications in a safe place, like a locked medication dispenser, a locked box or cabinet.
DISPOSE of unneeded or expired medication. Protect your family against misuse of medications by safely disposing of prescription and OTC medications.
For your pet’s health, it’s important that you safely and securely store all medications.
Proper storage helps prevent your pet from accidentally eating their medication (or yours).
For more information about keeping your pet safe from medications, please visit the FDA website at:
