Deterra Deactivates Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medications

The Deterra® Drug Deactivation System will deactivate organic medications including opioids.  However, Deterra will not adsorb biologics, such as vaccines and immunotherapeutics which are typically administered in a healthcare setting.  Additionally, inorganic medications, such as antacids, lithium and iron supplements will not be adsorbed.

If your medication has specific disposal instructions, please follow the directions as given. Consult authorities or your pharmacist for more specific questions.
