What are the problems with market approved products?
Important safety, legal, professional and security requirements must be met when providing medicines storage facilities for market approved products. If medicinal products aren’t stored properly they may not work as promised.
Exposure to light, humidity, and extreme temperatures can break down both prescription and over-the-counter drugs, making them less effective and – in rare cases – even toxic. Likewise, incorrect storage and handling of refrigerated medicines may result in destruction of medicines and financial loss as well as negatively impacting patient safety.
