From a humble modest kitchen in Potomac, Maryland Dr. Ed Rudnic and four friends developed the chemical compounds that would one day be called DisposeRx. Dr. Rudnic joins us for a trip back to that kitchen and answers the burning question: What exactly are crosslinking copolymers?

Ed Rudnic Describes How DisposeRx is Designed to Work

If you can form chemical bonds, that forms a chemical mesh, you get a tighter gel, a tighter mesh, that surrounds the drug and makes it impossible in this case, for the drug to leave. In this particular case, the way we developed this, if this is added to water and it crosslinks, as the water evaporates from the system over time, that net shrinks tighter and tighter around the drug and will not allow it to leave.

Ed Rudnic on How DisposeRx Safely and Effectively Makes Medications Inaccessible

We want the tablets or capsules, and this is formulated for both, to break down over a short period of time, and then this solidifies and now, something that was incredibly dangerous, potentially addictive, something that could destroy the environment in many ways, has been completely made inert.

What Can You Do in the Fight Against Opioid Addiction

Clean out your medicine cabinet. Missy Owen, co-Founder and CEO of Davis Direction Foundation, describes how her son became addicted to opioids after going to the medicine cabinet for something to help him sleep and finding leftover Vicodin. Unaware of the addictive nature of the drug, he became addicted, went through rehab, but died six weeks later.
With DisposeRx, consumers are now empowered to break the cycle of addiction and death that begins in the home medicine cabinet. Learn more at DisposeRx.com. Available online at Walmart.com.
