I forgot to ask my doctor at my appointment this morning, so I thought I would check with you guys.

Up until...well, today I guess...I was using birth control from Planned Parenthood. Because the clinic was a bit of a walk from my college dorm, I started to have the BC mailed to me. I'm switching over prescriptions/to a family medicine clinic, and cancelled my PP prescription, but not before they mailed off another round of my old BC prescription. Do I just throw it out (the Patch, by the way) or is there some other way I'm supposed to dispose of it? I'm never quite sure what to do with medications.

Just throwing them away is fine.
