Start the winter well prepared - Check your medicine cabinte now
With the rapid change in temperature from summer to fall, the first cold is not long in coming. Symptoms such as cough, cold or hoarseness can be quickly alleviated by a well-stocked medicine cabinet. Therefore, it is worthwhile to take precautions now and to check the medicine cabinet.
Check which medicines are already in stock and which have already expired. Medicines with expired dates should no longer be taken or used and, depending on the region, belong in the household waste. However, it is best to check this with your local waste disposal company.
