How to Donate Your Prescription Drugs
By eHow Health Editor
Rate: (12 Ratings)
You may have been prescribed a drug and received more doses than you actually needed. You can keep those drugs from going to waste by donating them to someone who needs them more. Donation and recycling programs have appeared in many parts of the United States over the past few years.
Read on to learn how to donate your prescription drugs.
Step 1Check to see whether your state allows for the donation of prescription drugs. There is no national resource for determining this information. Each state determines whether to allow the practice and how to carry it out.
Step 2Determine whether your prescription medication is eligible for donation. If it has been opened or may have been tampered with, you will not be allowed to donate it.
Step 3Contact your doctor or pharmacist and ask whether he participates in a donation program. He may be able to recommend a program or a further point of contact. Other options include contacting area hospitals and clinics.
Step 4Dispose of prescription drugs properly if you cannot find a donation program. Throw them away or take them to a household hazardous-waste collection point. Do not put them into a sink or toilet.
Step 5Understand that donating in the United States can be difficult. Due to legal issues regarding drug donations, many recycled medications are taken overseas to be redistributed.
Get to Know Your State Donation Rules
Step 1Recognize that some states limit prescription drug recycling to drugs that were distributed to qualified institutions, like long-term-care facilities.
Step 2Look into your state's drug donation regulations. States that allow individuals to donate prescription medications limit the specific drugs to be donated. Most donation programs will only accept unopened medication.
Step 3Know that many states do not allow individuals to donate prescription drugs, although distributors are allowed to donate medications with specific limitations. Several states make no arrangements for the disposal of prescription drugs at all, beyond simply throwing them in the trash
New Jersey does not currently have an operational program to allow for donation of unused prescibed medications.

The reason for this difference in substance control is the potential scope of misuse, from drug abuse to practicing medicine without a license and without sufficient education. Prescription drug discount card, which reduces the price you pay for your family's prescriptions, is an absolutely must for every family. Different jurisdictions have different definitions of what constitutes a prescription drug.Source(s): https://tr.im/lonestarsavings

No, I'm sorry but you can't donate the medications. Nobody who could use them could accept them. Once medication is prescribed and dispensed, that's it. In fact, it would be illegal for them to accept them and give them out again. The only thing you can do is dispose of them. It's bad in a way, and your idea is generous and honorable. But when it comes to medicines, you have to be very careful.Source(s): nurse

I never heard of selling someones eggs, but it would not surprise me. You can never really know if you do not ask. A fertility clinic, should be your best bet. If they do not buy they may know who does. You might have to wait until you turn 18. Good luck.
