Where do your store your medicine? In the bathroom medicine cabinet? Even though it’s called a medicine cabinet and it’s handy for all your little items most medications do not tolerate moisture. The drug could lose its effectiveness or worse, could change the chemistry and become harmful.
Your prescriptions should to be stored in a cool dry place that is safe and out of the reach of children. Only refrigerate medicine if your pharmacist or the drug label tells you to. If you have questions about where you should be storing your medications ask your pharmacist.
- In the picture with the 2 pills, they are the exact pill, one was exposed to moisture for just 1 week, the other was kept in a cool dry place.
