I saved mine and took them to my doctor to get rid of, figured he'd put them in the hazardous waste trash, etc. but once he "kept" one prescription that I'd never used saying he could give it to someone who needed it but couldn't afford it and the next time he threw them across the room in his regular trash :-)
I wrote to my state congresswoman about psychiatric drugs being flushed down toilets but as they replied, what's done with drugs can't very well be policed or anything and there isn't really any good way to get rid of extras or unwanted stuff. If you think about it; stuff from pee and poo goes into the toilet, etc. these days; saw a TV show on how that's affecting wildlife and us because water treatment plants can't filter for everything.
