Medicine can be a bit tricky when organizing or storing, because of expiry dates, temperature, and how accessible it is to little fingers of children.

So before we start, here are few tips for storing / disposing medicines in Dubai as per DHA  #smart_clinic via its Twitter page (DHA_Dubai) to raise awareness about the Authority’s, ‘Clean Your Medicine Cabinet,’ campaign in April 2015:
