Useful info and health tips
Keep it cool, dark and dry
Medicines should be kept in a cool, dry place and protected from light.
- Exposure to light, heat and moisture can accelerate the breakdown of medicines, which may reduce their efficacy or cause superficial changes, e.g. discoloration.
- In a warm and humid country like Singapore, appropriate storage is thus particularly important.
Keep away from children
- Poisoning incidents involving children are often attributable to the accidental ingestion
- These are usually preventable if medicines are stored appropriately.
Therefore, medicines should always be kept in a locked drawer/cabinet or at higher levels, beyond the reach of children.
Medicine that has changed color, consistency or odor should never be used regardless of expiry.
