Over half of the calls to the Kansas Poison Control Center are about medicines. These include both prescription and over-the-counter varieties. Medicines can help us live longer and healthier lives, but when taken in the wrong way, wrong amount or by the wrong person, they can be dangerous.

  • Even though over-the-counter (OTC) medicines don’t require a prescription, they can still be dangerous. See safety tips from the Kansas Poison Center.
