Norvir storage
Jan 28, 2005

This may seem like an odd question, but.... I am currently on a booster dose of Norvir and have been keeping the Norvir refridgerated as suggested by the drug company. Last week, a full bottle got inadvertently pushed to the back of the fridge and got very cold, possibly partially frozen. Could this harm the effectiveness of the drug? I'm a little concerned because it was a full bottle and don't want to take a full month of ineffective or partially effective meds.... Should I get a new bottle?


Response from Dr. Pierone

This should not be a problem since Norvir can be stored at temperatures as low as 36 degrees F (2 degrees Centigrade). This is just above freezing and it sounds like your supply was probably right around this level.

Viramune once per day
