Medicine Cabinet Is The WORST Place To Store Medicine

| Filed under: HealthMedicine

For many of us, it may be time to empty out our medicine cabinets and put our medications somewhere cooler!

Bathrooms are filled with moisture and heat, which led pharmacists to name medicine cabinets the WORST place to store medicine.

Medicine should not only be stored at room temperature (between 68 and 77 degrees), but kept away from the moisture fogging up your mirror after a hot shower.

Not only may drugs lose their effectiveness, but could even become HARMFUL if the chemistry changes.

Selig Corman, director of Professional Affairs at the Pharmacists Society of the State of New York, says:

"An egg kept at an extreme temperature of heat becomes cooked and that could happen with tablets, with certain gelatin capsules, and that could alter the chemistry of the product. Something as simple as aspirin … when aspirin reacts with moisture it becomes a different chemical … something that is sold as a corn remover. You wouldn't want to ingest a corn remover."

Yuck! Maybe it's time we stop calling the bathroom cabinet a "medicine cabinet"!

Check out the video above for more details about the dangers of storing medication in places with too high (or low) of a temperature!
