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.
