    Presciption bottles are made from various types of plastic. Bottles are typically made of #5 plastic which is polypropylene. It is used for its durability and insensitivity to heat, grease/oil and chemicals. To find out the specific type, locate a triangle formed by three arrows on the bottom of your container. There should be a number inside the triangle and several letters adjacent to the triangle. Check out the link cited here to find out the specific type, according to the number and letters.
