I just received a prescription for Veltin and the mail carrier left it in my mailbox. The temperature outside is close to 90 degrees and when I took the tube out of box it felt extremely hot. I don't know how long it was out in the heat. I'm assuming maybe 4 hours. The box label indicates it should be stored at 77 degrees and it definitely was hotter than that. I called the pharmacy & they said it was still fine but I have read that the hot temperatures could deteriorate the product and cause potency loss. Just curious if anyone else has had this experience or knows whether it's still good?

It should be fine, unless it was out there for a long period of time, just as your pharmacy said. While medications can deteriorate due to time, temperature, and storage conditions, it does not usually happen that fast, it takes a longer period of time. It would be a bigger concern if it sat out in the heat for several days.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including skin redness, flakiness, and irritation.

Is there anything else I can help with?
