Resumo

: Medicines are important therapeutic tools used for treating and preventing diseases. However, medicines which were not complete consumed and consequently household stored are sources of domestic intoxication and self-medication, besides the environmental impacts of the wrong disposal of these products. The withdrawal and responsible redistribution of these medicines to nongovernmental organizations can be considered a social action once they can be reutilized by others. Medicines considered inappropriate can be sent to Municipal Sanitary Surveillance in order to incinerate, which can cooperate to the removal of chemicals from the trash and / or sewer. These actions may contribute to an evaluation of the amount of the obsolete medicines, as well to lead to considerations for future actions instituted by pharmacists.
