Storing Medication

by Lisa Rosen on August 24, 2011

This article has us a little concerned.  It says you should never let your medications get hot.

Um, ours come in the mail–in North Carolina.  It gets mighty hot in our black mailbox, with the summer sun beating down.  And insurance companies are beginning to require the use of mail-order prescription services like Medco.

(Of course, when Lee read the article last week, I posed a broader question:  even if we get our prescriptions filled at the local pharmacy, how do we know the medications were kept cool en route to the drugstore?  It’s all quite troubling.)
