Hello!
I have a supply of aromasin I won't be taking (bad side effects) does anyone know where I could donate it? Seems like a waste to just throw it away when someone could use it.
thanks,
j

    you might ask at your cancer
    you might ask at your cancer center or the pharmacy. I think prescription drugs have to be distributed by licensed handlers.

    Give to Onc
    My oncologist took my leftover drugs after I asked her about what to do with them. She told me she has many patients that have no insurance or drug plans so I was very happy I was able to give back and help someone who can't afford the meds. These AI drugs aren't generic yet and are very pricey.

    I gave it to the onc's office
    Had lots of leftover meds from chemo, mainly antinausea drugs, and supplies for the picc. They took them all because of the numerous patients who have no insurance. Then billed me $10.00 for the office visit...haha
