Should liquid antibiotics always be stored in the refrigerator?
Not all liquid antibiotics need to be stored in the refrigerator. Refrigerating certain liquid
antibiotics will actually break down some medication, making them ineffective. The opposite is
true for certain other liquid antibiotics: They must be kept refrigerated.
Be sure to read all the auxiliary labels on the medication bottle or the patient information sheet you receive. If the medication needs to be refrigerated, there should be a label telling you. If you are unsure, just ask your pharmacist.
