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.

Response from Dr. Young

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.


can supplements be taken together at the same time as the first line treatment?
