I was wondering what I should do with all this xtra abx. and equipment?

I'd hate to throw it out! Are you even allowed to throw it away?

Any sugg....

The standard proceedure is to take all the stuff back the the pharmacy where you got it (or lat least your local pharmacy) they can dispose of the stuff, but I suspect that the unused stuff is then given away to foriegn aid programs.

I have this problem too. I'm thinking about asking my LLMD if he will take them and dispense them to anyone needing supplies. I'm in the process of moving and I hate to drag around all these I.V. supplies.

Thank you for the suggestions. I never really thought to ask my local pharmacy.

I called mt home care nurse after the misunderstanding with Cave... and she said that I can't out them in my needle dispenser...

So, I will try my pharmacy.

Cave I am sooooo sooooo sorry for the miscommunication, I can also understand your piont, I would never ever give my stuff to someone else to use!!!!

So now that that's cleared up.....I feel so much better. I was so upset after I read the response, I almost cried.

I love Lymenet and would never want anyone to doubt my integrity and honesty.

whew...ok Let's move on to other more important posts.... Those in need of support
