The reason I posted this was because of a string of events in my home town....
On the evening news was a urgent report about 3 elementary school students, all 5th graders. Apparently each child took medications from their parents. They all met up at school and took the medications together. All ended up in the hospital.
I was shocked because they were so young! When I mentioned this to a friend, I found out that most teens are first abusing drugs they find at home!! I knew of course that abuse of prescription drug in adults was the reason why so many of us have to jump through so many hoops for our medical care.... I guess I just never thought that children and teens would be stealing from their parents and family members. Let alone stealing medications that could harm them!
I am currently looking for pill safe. I had gone to my pharmacy and they did not have one. I checked my local grocers store but no such luck. Later tonight I will check around online and see what I can find. I would rather get into the practice of locking up my medication in a secure (safe) area now, than later when it may be to late.
