Storing Medicines

From my DW
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
ABC World News featured a clip on storage of medicine in extreme heat or cold and the effects on these drugs, particularly those that could be life saving. The report featured an allergy medicine that failed to work for a child's allergic disorder after it traveled in the trunk of a car for 6 hours. The cabinets in recreational vehicles are probably not the most temperate locations for storage of prescription medicine due to their exposure to the outer shell. When we are in extremely warm areas, we try and remember to open the door to the medicine storage cabinet upon reaching our destination, however, we wonder about the heat buildup in transit, especially during this record breaking heat. We transport 3-month maintenance medicines and are open to suggestions for temperate storage of these.

We carry our in an insulated bag under the bed, and our weekly boxes stay in a drawer under the counter which is not exposed to an exterior wall.

Good thought. Is there a downside to storing them in the fridge?

Each medication has a temp range for shipping, storage at your pharmacy and then with you.

The product information sheet that is provided with each prescription has this temp range listed.

Some medications require constant refrigeration at all times until it's time to use.
Example: Enbrel aka Etanercept injection for rheumatoid arthritis must be stored 36f to 46f but you can't freeze it and have to left warm to room temp for 30 mins prior to injection.

If you are not positive right now about your meds you need to check your sheet or the pharmacy.

Yes there is. Medicines should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture. Refrigeration should not be an option unless inidicated by the manufacturer.

The post was really as a helpful heads-up so that people don't get caught up in some bad chemistry.

Here is the ABC Article
