Hello all-

I just got Benzamycin. Unfortunately, no one told me it had to be refrigerated!!! I discovered this was the case a week after I received the medication. Will not being refrigerated for a week affect the way the medicine works?

Many thanks!

call your pharmacist and check with him/her. I know it has to be refrigerated, but not sure how long it has to be out before it becomes less effective. Best just to check and be sure.

I've noticed no difference whether its kept in the fridge or not. In fact I was completely clear for over a year on it a few years back and it wasnt kept in the fridge then.

Call the pharmacist!!!

There is a reason that they put the refrigerate label on there.

If there wasn't....then they wouldn't have it on the package.

You wouldn't drink expired milk that hasn't been refrigerated...

There are labels and dates on things for a reason...

same goes for medication
