Hints and tips for your medicine cabinet
- For emergencies: A list of important emergency numbers in the medicine cabinet helps to get help quickly in an emergency.
- Correct use: For important information, see the medication package leaflet.
- What belongs in it: Your pharmacist will advise you on how to put together your medicine cabinet.
- Usable content: The medicine cabinet must be checked from time to time, because medicines also have an expiry date! Your pharmacy will accept old, expired medicines; they must not be disposed of with household waste.
- The right place: A dry and cool place is necessary for a medicine cabinet. The bathroom or kitchen are not suitable for storing a medicine cabinet, as moisture and heat can change the effectiveness of the medication.
- Caution: the medicine cabinet must be out of the reach of children!
- That doesn't belong in it: household chemicals and cosmetics, e.g. stain removers, cleaning agents, nail polish etc.
