Note special storage requirements when repackaging

November 13, 2012

ACP Pharmacy Practice Consultants have come across several situations where pharmacists were not aware of the unique storage and handling requirements of some drugs (e.g., Micardis, Losec capsules, Aggrenox, Pradaxa). There are several products that need to be kept in their original packaging. Always read the information regarding drug storage and the box/bottle labelling before dispensing into another container or compliance package to prevent product breakdown and loss of potency.
