Kind of underscores keeping these things out of reach and sight of little kids, eh? Not that we shouldn't for other reasons.

Honestly, though, most of my meds don't look like candy.

Although I've been trying of late to use M&M's for meds!! Unfortunately, all it's done is give me heartburn and an appointment with a GI doc!

A few months ago I went to family thing called "family affair", it's basically a bunch of booths of local bussinesses giving little free things to the kids while trying to talk the parents into spending all thier money on something we dont need lol, well this one booth had a glass box with a bunch of pills glued on one side and candies that look exactly like them glued to the other side, it was very scary to realize how much they look alike. But none of my pills look like any candy that I've seen, except my Suboxone kinda look like little orange stop signs, that taste like an orange peel, so I would think small children would find them kinda tasty cause they are not bitter, they're meant to kinda taste good cause you have to let them dissolve under your tongue, but I really dont like the taste of them and they make my tongue go kinda numb, And drinking orange juice right afterwards is the worst taste in the world lol.

Alright......you guys are too funny!!! I've never looked at my meds in terms of do they look like candy LOL. So lets see......my Percocet looks like...ummmm....a percocet hahahaha. My Kadian looks like a Kadian LOL and my other meds look like meds hahahahaha.

I'll stick with the real M&Ms.....switched to the pastel ones cause it reminds me of spring!

Ohhh by the way.....one of my Peruvian Lilies are coming up! After the big snow storm I thought they were goners but apparently its springing up through the ground just nicely! YAY!

Here is a good one, I never thought of my meds looking like candy before but I did get a kind of weird jibe when one of the kids asked me and this was a teenager now if I took the methadone that was round or the one that looked like a "COFFIN" ??? I about fell over. I guess these kids out there have found their own way of stating how dangerous methadone is.

Yes it does actually look like a little coffin but to say I would have ever thought of that on my own is reaching some.

After that I did double lock my safe no doubt!

Angel8 you are so RIGHT. One of my 20 yr olds friends saw me taking my pills a few months ago. When I take my pills its like holding a handful. He just kinda looked in my hand. It shocked me that he named off my xanax and my percocets!!!!! He knew the dose and everything. Just say that day it proved to me I better take my pills in my personal bathroom in the back of the house from now on. Thats so said the kids now days know so much about Pharmacy Meds

Wow - these kids know more about the meds than I do. Sometimes I have one dose of all my meds in my purse in a pill box and I'll maybe have an OTC med in there and I have to get my glasses and look closely to distinguish.

LL - I heard the worst place to keep meds (of all kinds) is in the bathroom because of the changes in temperature and humidity. It can affect the meds. Odd, since that's where we have learned to have a "medicine cabinet". I keep mine in the bedroom, and some in the kitchen.

I never thought of that.  Our bathroom is HUGE.  But I think I will move them to my bedroom.  Thank god our kids don't go into our room or bathroom they have their own space.
