A doctor or pharmacist may give a patient instructions on how to take prescription medication, but how to store that drug is not often discussed. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Dr. Elizabeth Higdon, an instructor in pharmacy practice at Albany College of Pharmacy, about how to store your prescriptions to maintain their effectiveness.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
