Maintenance Medications

ADHD

We are currently unable to provide new evaluations or requests for stimulant medication treatment for ADD/ADHD. Please speak to your primary care clinician for their assistance in continuing any prescribed medication prior to your arrival on campus. Although stimulant medication is a class II controlled substance, prescriptions may be prescribed electronically and across state lines by your clinician to our pharmacy.

Birth Control

Our clinicians are available to support you in beginning, or continuing, your choice of contraception. Available methods include birth control pills, intrauterine devices (IUD's), long acting implants under the skin (Nexplanon), and injections (Depo-provera). If you do not have a current prescription, please make an appointment with Health & Wellness. 

Emergency Contraception

A prescription may not be required for some emergency contraception (EC). Contact the pharmacy at 603-862-1094 for more information.

Prescription Disposal

Let us help you properly dispose of prescription drug containers and unused prescription medications.

  • Remove the label or use a marker to black out any personal health information on the empty container prior to recycling.
  • Bring empty birth control packaging to the pharmacy when you pick up your refill so it can be reused.
  • Do not put unused or expired medications down the toilet or the sink.
  • Other medication drop-off locations:
    • The UNH Police Department also accepts medications 365 days/year.

Drug Take-Back Day

The easiest, safest way to dispose of medications is during Drug Take-Back Day. Drug Take-Back Day is a national program, offered once a semester in April and October, in coordination with our office, UNH Police Department and the DEA. This event offers individuals a safe, free and confidential way to dispose of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. No questions asked!

Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet. By eliminating these unused medications, we can reduce misuse, abuse, and accidental poisoning. But, it’s important to dispose of medications the right way. Do not flush medications down the toilet where they can contaminate groundwater and waterways.
