Prescription Research Institute, a non-profit organization engaged in promoting the safe and effective use of expired medications recently launched its web site saveyourmeds.org.
Conducting laboratory tests on expired medications in conjunction with surveys of consumer use of outdated medicines in their homes, the Institute will create the world’s largest data base resulting in medication cost savings, public health benefits and a positive environmental impact.The high cost of medicines is a problem that seems to be getting worse rather than better.The U.S. Armed forces recognized this in 1985, resulting in the creation of the Shelf Life Extension Program (SLEP) . SLEP established that 90% of the Department of Defense’s billion-dollar stockpile of drugs were proven to be effective and safe as long as 10 years beyond the manufacturer’s expiration date. More recently, the FDA decided to release for public consumption outdated Tamiflu and Relenza . We believe these actions show that the use of effective outdated medicines needs to be closer examined.
We’re conducting stability tests of expired medication and collecting data. You can assist by completing our survey.
