MEDNET Launches MedSafe to Prevent Teenage Prescription Drug Abuse

Online medical supply leader now offers healthcare’s most secure medical safe to consumers

RIDGE, N.Y., Oct. 21, 2009 — What’s the cost of saving a teenage life? When it comes to preventing accidental death resulting from prescription medication abuse, there’s no price tag. Parents with good intentions, however, may be unaware that the lock-boxes they’ve installed are not protecting their teens from the ticking timebomb of prescription drugs. That’s why MEDNET(TM), a national leader in premium-quality medical supplies, has formed an exclusive partnership with Axius Healthcare Group to distribute MedSafe(TM), the most secure medical safe on the market today.

“MedSafe is a real safe, setting it apart from medicine cabinets and other inferior lock-box products,” says Lorraine Yarde, principal of the Axius MedSafe division of Axius Healthcare Group, which manufactures products that prevent loss in the healthcare industry and address patient safety concerns. “We’ve been developing this safe for five years in response to specific consumer demand. MedSafe is much more than a deterrent – it’s peace of mind for parents, grandparents and caretakers, and provides real protection against prescription drug abuse.”

Made of high-grade steel, MedSafe (http://www.MedSafeStore.com) features a biometric fingerprint reader, so its contents are accessible only to the parent or person who programs the safe. MedSafe technology is proven: it has been used in the healthcare industry for years, securing medications in doctors’ offices nationwide. Moreover, it is the number-one choice for gun enthusiasts and law enforcement officers to store handguns in the home, winning endorsements from the National Rifle Association and The Handgun Club of America. Other lock-box products available on the market today, made from plastic and using confusing combination locks or mechanical keys, do not stand up to the durable steel and high-tech security features of the original MedSafe.

“MedSafe is secure enough to store a loaded weapon, and that’s exactly what a prescription drug is when it winds up in the hands of teens and is abused,” says Rob Perissi, MEDNET’s president. “The parallel is uncanny but pertinent, considering that one in five teens has abused a prescription pain medication, and one in 10 has abused cough medicine. Preventing access to such medications is our goal through this partnership with Axius. MedSafe is the best solution available with a proven record of over five years.”

MEDNET is the exclusive distributor of MedSafe, available in two sizes. MedSafe is ideal not only for homes but anywhere prescription and over-the-counter medications are stored in proximity of children and teens, including daycares, schools, camps and more.
