8 Life-Saving Questions You Should Ask Your Pharmacist
‘How should I store my meds?’
Are you keeping your meds in the bathroom?
This option may seem logical, especially if you have to take them before going to sleep. Your pills are easy to reach and you’ll always remember to take them.
However, this can also be one of the worst places to keep any medicine.
According to pharmacist Matthew Grissinger, RPh, FISMP, keeping your meds in the bathroom can be one of the most uninspired decisions. Why?
Because this place often records the highest humidity levels and the highest temperatures (think of long baths and hot showers).
Most types of medication should be kept in a cool, dark place – and some even require refrigeration. Always ask your pharmacist for storage instructions to preserve the properties of your meds.
