1 doctor weighed in:

I took paracetamol that was in my warm car for months. Would the heat cause paracetamol to become toxic? I'm really scared.

In brief: Paracetamol

That has been in your car for several months may not be effective.
Giving warm fluids with paracetamol will improve absorption and raise the level higher sooner. The medication in your car, I would not use. All the best.
