Lock it Up!


Follow these FDA guidelines to ensure your medications are secure to keep yourself, family and pets safe!

  • Put medicines and vitamins up and away – out of reach and out of sight.

Keep all medication in your home in a lock box. Pick a storage place that is out of sight and that children cannot reach. Walk around your house and decide on the safest place to keep your medicines and vitamins.

  • Put medicines and vitamins away every time.

This includes medicines and vitamins you use every day. Never leave them out on a counter-top or other public space, even if you have to give the medicine again in a few hours.

  • Hear the “click” to make sure the safety cap is locked.

Always re-lock the cap on a medicine bottle. If the bottle has a locking cap that turns, twist it until you hear the click. Remember, even though many medicines have safety caps, children may be able to open them.

  • Be prepared in case of an emergency.

Program the Poison Control number into your home and cell phones so you will have it when you need it. 800.222.1222
