Store Meds in Original Containers
If you have young children in your home, always store medicines in their original containers. In case of accidental poisoning, it's important to know the ingredients in a drug product and the dosage so that any emergency instructions from the manufacturer can be researched, says the National Poison Control Center. While prescription medicines usually don't list ingredients, information on the label makes it possible for the contents to be identified.
