|Stribild- left on doorstep overnight at low temperature
Feb 18, 2014
Would a mail order delivery of Stribild left on the doorstep overnight at 40F affect its stability or potency? I know most meds don't fare well under extreme heat, but am curious as to the effect of less than 12 hours of cold.

Hello and thanks for posting.
I don't think that a brief overnight period of 40F will have any effect on your medications. If you're unsure, I'd suggest discussing with your doctor or pharmacist- sometimes a look at the pills can be reassuring.
