Day 18: Med Check

Hey Everyone, Eric from the 30 Days Gang, here with your day 18 Challenge! Wow We are already halfway thru the month! Today seems like a good day to tackle a topic that really requires a bit of time and some conversations. Today, lets discuss medications.

One of the questions we get a lot when we talk about preparedness, is how do you have extra medications on hand that require certain prescriptions? While there is not an easy answer to this question, we do suggest you have a conversation with your doctor and pharmacist and see if they will work with you to have a few extra dosages available in case of an emergency or disaster.

Additionally, we want you to spend a little time going through your medicine cabinet and determining what is expired and how to dispose of old medications.

DAY 18 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    For todays Challenge we want you to share what tricks you have come up with to have prescriptions on hand. If you have not had this conversation yet, share with us about your goals to have this conversation with your doctor and pharmacist in the near future.

Level Up: 5 pts For today’s level up, we want you to take a look inside your medicine cabinet and clear out anything that might be outdated. Take a pic and share with us. Additionally, share with us how you plan on or where you plan on disposing them.
