Is it safe to order medicine through mail-order pharmacies in extreme temperature climates?
Is it safe to order prescriptions and other medicines (including supplements) through a mail-order place? Most medicines say to keep them at room temperature, not about 90 degrees or below freezing, as many mailboxes can get in many parts of the world.
I've known people that have received diabetic supplies and they are well packaged in weather-tolerant containers, depending on whether the ingredients needs to stay cold, room temp, or hot. I've personally never ordered any though.
I'll say yes but check to see if the med is tolerable in certain temperatures or if it doesn't matter. I think most of the time, once it is opened it may need to be maintained within a certain temperature usually to keep cool. In hot temps the potency may be depleted.
