Step 1: Collect all of your unused or expired medications by removing the child resistant cap and confirm that the prescription vial is no more than 1/3 full of pills, capsules and or tablets (this will ensure maximum destruction). Once activated, medication will be safe from diversion, illicit use or pollution.
Step 2: Add water until the prescription vial is about 2/3rds full.
Step 3: Add the DisposeRx powder, screw on the child resistant cap and shake for about 30 seconds. The gel will rapidly form, sequestering the drugs from abuse or pollution. Then simply discard the prescription vial in your household waste.
Discard alternative: Collect all of your collected medication vials, treat them with DisposeRx, and head to your local drop off locations for take-back and incineration.

DisposeRx is an effective, convenient, and inexpensive method of permanent drug disposal that does not enable extraction for illicit use or environmental contamination. DisposeRx is used for disposal of all prescription and non-prescription drugs formulated as tablets, capsules, powders, patches, or liquids. For larger volumes of drug disposal, DisposeRx is provides various gallon sized bags to manage drugs accumulating in hospitals, hospices, nursing homes and correctional facilities.
Drugs are sequestered into our solidifying substance of high viscosity gel, and the vial is then safely thrown into the household waste. For large volume drug disposal, drugs are added to gallon sized bags containing DisposeRx, water is added, mixed and the bag is safely thrown into the trash. *Patent pending.
