Mail-order medications may lose their effectiveness if not stored properly

Dr. Keith Roach

Dear Dr. Roach:I am concerned and have worried for some time about whether my prescriptions in the mail will be compromised, since they are in the car with the sun shining through the windows heating them up. Additionally, plastic bottles containing prescription medications release toxic emissions when they are exposed to the sun. The instructions that come with some threads also warn about temperature.

My pharmacist told me that heat has a negative effect on the effectiveness of the medicine. So if that really happens, millions of us are taking important medications that essentially don’t work. After all, topics to the pharmacy are also available on attractive media. What do you think?
