There comes a time when child proof containers no longer work.​

For safe medicine storage, lock up your prescriptions.

Children, family members and outside visitors can easily access your
prescription medication if they are not safely stored. A medicine lock box
prevents unauthorized access to your prescription medicines at home.
For your FREE lock box, call 410-819-5639
