I have a general question about all antiretrovirals (excluding liquid formulations). Can they be stored in the refrigerator even if the manufacturer's recommended storage is room temperature?
The reason why I ask this question regards using a "compliance pack" to assist with adherence. Some medications need to be refrigerated and some do not- but with the compliance pack, they are all stored in one daily blister package. Will refrigerating these medications affect their integrity?

I think it's safe to assume that a 1 week supply of medications in a pill box would be safe at room temperature. BY
