Use Medicines Wisely


Each year thousands of injuries and deaths are caused by improper medication use. Many of these injuries could have been prevented. In order to help raise awareness about safe medication use, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Office of Women’s Health has created a new public service announcement (PSA) titled “Use Medicines Wisely”. The PSA provides several tips to encourage the public to safely use their prescription and over-the-counter medicines. The PSA will be launched during October – “Talk about Prescriptions Month”.
