The Ultimate Guide to Storing Your Medications

The Ultimate Guide to Storing Your Medications

Whether you are relying on multiple precisely dosed insulin injections, or on weekly injections to prevent rheumatoid arthritis flare-ups, the foundation of every treatment is that the medications work as expected.

With drugs such as insulin, biologics or hormones, another factor comes into play. They are temperature-sensitive and lose effectiveness when they get too warm or too cold.

Until our medications reach our homes, their storage and transport has been monitored and controlled. From then on it is in our hands to store them correctly.

We take our medications when we travel, we have them with us every day and we store them in our fridges at home which are not always reliable.

We must store and transport our medications correctly to ensure less variability.
