Tayside Police are appealing for information after prescribed medication was lost in the centre of Brechin on Monday morning.
The medication – 28 10mg amitriptyline tablets in blister packs – was contained within a Boots paper bag and had just been collected from the chemists in St David Street when mislaid, shortly after midday.
Clearly any medication can be dangerous if taken in unprescribed amounts, or by someone other than the person it was prescribed to. Anyone who finds the tablets is urged to hand them in to Tayside Police.
Equally, anyone with information that could lead to their recovery should call 0300 111 2222, or speak to any officer.
