  We’ve all had little incidents in life that required us to be given prescription drugs -- pain medication for a wisdom teeth extraction or antibiotics for a bad flu. However, once the ailment runs its course, many of us simply put the unfinished pills in the medicine cabinet and forget about them. This has become problematic nowadays as prescription drug abuse has skyrocketed and the overdose figures have never been higher.
