Hey Peeps,
I get my meds mailed to me (I&S) and today it was between 0-5 degrees here in Wisconsin and my meds were sitting outside for at least 3-4 hours. The Isentress bottle says to store at 68-77F and permitted to 59-86 degrees F. Has anyone else had this happen? What did you do? It seems like a total pain in the ass to send them back.  >:(

Generally speaking its the higher temps that can damage meds and that takes more than a few hours in order for that happen . Lower temps are much less of a concern for most meds and it would take allot of cold a long time to damage your packaged meds .

You really will be OK and your meds will not suffer from being left out in the cold for a day .
