Don't Break the Cold Chain With Refrigerated and Frozen Meds

Improper storage of meds that must be refrigerated or frozen can lead to reduced shelf life, ineffective treatment, waste, etc.

Consider these tips to help maintain the "cold chain."

Familiarize yourself with meds you might not expect to be stored in the fridge, such as arformoterol (Brovana) or formoterol (Perforomist) inhalers, liotrix (Thyrolar) tabs, or gabapentin solution. See our new chart, Medications Stored in the Refrigerator, for others.
