How can I find out if I'm supposed to flush or pour my unwanted or expired medicine down the drain if I no longer have the prescription's packaging?

If you no longer have the medicine's packaging with the instructions, call a pharmacist and explain you want to find out whether that prescription comes with specific instructions to either flush or pour it down the drain. Be prepared to have the exact name of the medicine.
