  • Yep. Especially with medication, never use it after the safety seal is broken. Good man you have there!

  • I would take it back and explain what happened and say that you didn't want to return it, you just wanted to exchange it for an unopened item.

    I did this once with foundation - it came in a box in a compact and when I opened the box, I saw that the safety seal had been removed and someone had tried the makeup. They said they didn't have a return policy for used makeup, but once I explained that I wasn't the one to open and use it, and I didn't want to "return" it, I wanted to exchange it for one that wasn't opened and used by a stranger. Then it wasn't a problem, they let me switch it out.

  • Oh, look at it this way, yes, it might have been some kids or someone who was broke and desperate that opened it and took some, but then again, it could be some sicko who put something in there on the meds, whose hoping that's what you'll think (the whole just some kids theory, that is).

  • yes i would take it back and just say i got home and noticed that the seal was already broken, do you mind if I exchange this for another one?
    they wont mind im sure...LOL

    My SO once took back cosmetic facial pads because when liquid touched them they fell apart, I personally would have bought new ones but he takes anything back if its not satisfactory so oh well. sorry added my own personal story
