A 44-year-old member asked:

Is it okay to store my flonase in a place that often gets very warm?

Store at 86 deg or <: The package insert for Flonase recommends that it be stored "between 4° and 30°c (39° and 86°f)." the medicine may break down faster if it gets warmer than that, especially if it happens for a long time or if it happens often. That means it won't be as effective when used.

No: Medications have specific instructions to keep at certain temperatures. Extreme heat or cold inactivate the medication. Do not keep it in your car! room temperature is best.
