If you’re worried about anyone misusing the prescription drugs your dentist, Dr. Yakov Royzman & Karina Zaygermakher, gives you after your dental treatment, our Professional Dental & Implant Center team has some helpful tips for you! We recommend that you keep your medications in the right hands by doing the following things:

Communicate with your family and friends
Talk to your family members and friends and make sure they understand the dangers of misusing prescribed medications. Using the medication for nonmedical reasons is illegal and unsafe. In fact, doing so can be just as addictive, dangerous, and lethal as street drugs. The only person who should be using the medication is the person for whom they are prescribed.

Keep the medicine in a secure place
It’s best to keep the medicine in a safe and secure place. It’s also smart to keep it locked in an unpredictable and inaccessible area. That way the chances of your medication getting stolen are greatly decreased.

Monitor the pills
Keep track of how many pills and refills you have left. Remembering these things will help you know if your pills are being stolen.
