LOCKMED: Lockboxes to Keep Medications Out of the Hands of Children (GIVEAWAY)

In October, I posted a review of LOCKMED products. You may recall that they have a line of lockboxes that are specially designed to keep your medications out of the reach of children. This is so important! According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, more than 3,000 children begin experimenting with prescription drugs every day. Prescription drugs, birth-control pills, cough and cold remedies, diabetic supplies, and more can all pose a serious risk to kids. You may think it’s not a big deal if you don’t have babies or toddlers in the house, but school-aged kids and teens may also find that medications look tempting. In fact, over 3 million U.S. teens abuse prescription drugs.

LOCKMED lockboxes come in three sizes. The small and medium sizes use a combination lock, and the large (commercial) size has a key lock. All of them have a strong reinforced aluminum exterior and are lined with a dark velvet interior. The small size is great for travel. As I said in my review in October, I received a LOCKMED lockbox and was very pleased to see the reinforced corners, the pads on the bottom to prevent scratching, and the convenient carrying handle. Best of all, I feel good knowing that my kids don’t have access to the medications we keep in the house.

If you have children and any sort of prescription or non-prescription medications in your house, then a LOCKMED lockbox is essential. Visit www.lockmed.com to order a lockbox. They’re very reasonably priced between $19-23! I think that’s a small price to pay to help keep your child out of harm’s way.

  38. The drug abuse among kids and teens is staggering. Lots of the drugs come from their parent's medications. It is much safer around small children to lock up meds because they are easily harmed by even a small dose.

  44. I learned that 70% of kids that abuse Rx drugs, get them from home. Everyday 3,300 kids start experimenting with Rx drugs.
    This is such a great product, I could really benefit from this. My hubby and I both have meds we need to keep away from our little ones.
