Federal Manager's Daily Report

Military health officials are advising service members and their families to check their medicine chests and get rid of expired or unneeded prescription medications. Persons who wish to dispose of these drugs can do so at most military pharmacies, under the Military Health System’s Drug Take Back program. Participating pharmacies will display disposal containers where the old medications can be deposited. In some cases, pharmacies will offer take-home, mail-in envelopes. A list of participating pharmacies is available online at www.tricare.mil/mtf.
