My mother passed away in May and we have about 15 boxes of Apokyn left. It was so expensive and we are still making payments on it. Does anyone know of way to pass on the left over medicine and possibly recoup some of the money?

Hi Jennifer, Sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I know it's not always easy to dump something that you originally paid good money for... but due to safety reasons, the FDA actually provides a specific set of guidelines on how to "properly" dispose of any unused portions of Rx medication.

On their website they mention that some communities have what's called a "drug take-back program", in which they recommend contacting your local city/county household trash and recycling service to see if there's a safe location you can bring it to in your area.

If not, there are also a number of other suggestions mentioned in the link below that may make things easier:

I hope this helps!
