March 17-23, 2013 is National Poison Prevention Week!

Pharmacy (health Awareness)

Last year, America’s 57 poison centers received about 4 million calls. Of those, about 2.4 million were calls about poison exposures ranging from carbon monoxide to snake bites to food poisoning.

The rest were calls for information. These prevention tips can help you or your loved ones avoid poisonings.

Poison centers aren’t just for parents whose children get into the cleaning cabinet. You can use a poison center if you’re concerned you’ve taken the wrong medicine or the right medicine in the wrong dose. You can call a poison center if you’re concerned about a household product you’ve inhaled, or if a seemingly normal substance causes a bad reaction.

Poison centers are ideal in an emergency or just when you’re a little worried. Best of all, they’re free, confidential and open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year.

Here are a few tips on keeping yourself safe:
