I have some medication that I'm currently not using, that is a liquid in capsule form, and I was wondering what would be the proper way of storing it for *potential* future usage? (although I hope not anymore...)
It is very expensive and I would hate to just let it sit there and become unusable in the case that I ever might need it again.
the very best thing to do here in order to get the best and appropriate info on that specific medication would be to just call your pharmacist and ask them.they would be able to tell you for certain.every med is not created equal and yours may have to actually be disposed of for some reason.you just need to go to the best possible source for this kind of info really.hope you never need it again tho.FB

Also... don't store medications in the bathroom cabnet. Even though everyone does it. The humidity (Heat and Moisture) is bad for all medications. A Cool, Dry place like a closet is better then the bathroom.
Chemist here.. Freezing pills can extend there life.. and refrigerating medication with liquid components. Do not use medication 6 months past experation dates.. chemical breakdown and radical formation will occur with in this time making the medication less effective or dangerous.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
Is that really true? Because I thought that you had to follow the package and labeling instructions for each medication? If it says to store between xx-xx temperature, then you should not allow it to be above or below that temperature. I don't think freezing or refrigerating medication that has specific storage instructions is a good idea!
I think the best thing to do would be to contact the pharmacist and ask for storage directions in terms of temperature. They have all of that information available in their computer. If it says not to store it under whatever temperature is in your fridge or freezer, then don't do it!
