Are cough syrups in any way bad for the environment?

    This has actually already been asked on this site, and answered splendidly, as you’ll find in the link. Personally, I wouldn’t worry so long as you recycle the left over packaging. Or, if you’d like, you can make your own cough syrup, with the recipe in the second link.

    Cough syrup, and other medicine, should not be flushed and their real danger comes from animals (including small children) going though the trash. A good way to dispose of cough syrup is to mix it in with the kitty litter, coffee grounds, or sawdust when you throw it away.
