I've seen posts where women share all their meds that they have to take while trying to get pregnant or while pregnant in the case of IVF or embryo adoption.  If you are not new to the infertility/loss/ttc blogs, I'm sure you have too.

This is not one of those posts.

This is about the left-overs.

I usually don't write about this stuff.  And I don't advise any one to ever post that they are taking any kinds of meds that can be abused due to bad people that might want to take advantage of you.  But none of this is worth stealing...unless you have a bunch of clotting disorders, high blood pressure and an irregular heartbeat among other things.
Anyway, I was doing some house cleaning I started gathering all the meds I had to take during my pregnancy with Jakin.  (Just another note: don't keep meds in the medicine cabinet...it is the first place addicts...or experimenting teens...will look if they want to steal from you)

When all was said and done this is what I had...



What in the world am I supposed to do with all this?

Yuck.  I hate meds.  Especially meds that are meant to save your baby's life-but don't.

:'( Oh the dreaded Lovenox shots! Mine were twice a day! What about you?

I've heard of people giving them back to the pharmacy or doctor to destroy them, or if they expire, then just throw them away.

I'm sorry you had to go through all that and then NOT have your baby. :-(

I guess throw it away? :(

:( What a sad reminder...
I know some clinics will take meds if they aren't expired and if they aren't 'for pregnancy' {ie lovenox and heart meds}, some free clinics will take them as well.

Let me know what you decide to do .. I am not sure what to do either, but I don't think I can bring myself to throw it away.

Hugs.

I think you should ask your doctor if they will take them back.
I am so sorry ((HUGS))

I agree with Lisette..could you maybe donate them to someone else? I am sorry you have to see them at all..it really does stink when you have all of those drugs in the house..mine were fertility related though! On a better note..I just wanted you to know that I have given you a Stylish Blogger Award on my blog because you are so positive and have been so encouraging with your words. You deserve it!!
