I left my son's liquid antibiotic sitting on the kitchen counter all day instead of putting it back in the refrigerator. Is the medicine still OK?
Depending on the medication, including liquid antibiotics, it may no longer be effective due to
improper storage. Certain medications will break down and lose their potency if not stored in
the refrigerator. If you are unsure if the medication is still effective, consult your doctor
Always be sure to read all the labels on the medication container for directions for use and storage.
