Keeping prescriptions safe in the heat

Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – We’ve had a hot summer, so Dr. Kara James, owner and pharmacy manager of Lewis & Clark Pharmacy, joined us with useful tips on keeping your medication safe from the heat.

Dr. James noted both heat and humidity can cause medication to degrade faster, so avoid keeping it in the bathroom or the car.

Ideally, store your medication in a cabinet that’s cool and dry and out of reach for pets and children.
