Remember to keep prescription and OTC medicines away from children. It's safest to add child-resistant locks to the cabinets where medicines are stored, as children can climb on chairs and counters to reach high cabinets. Also, keep all medicines in their original child-resistant containers. That way, you can also see the expiration date of the medicine and instructions for use on the container.
Where do you keep your medicine? Preferably, not in the medicine cabinet in a bathroom! Surprisingly, the medicine cabinet in a steamy, moist bathroom is the worst place to keep any medicine; prescription or over-the-counter (OTC). The heat and moisture in a bathroom can make medicines weaker.
