Is Singulair safe and effective to take once it has been in the mail for 24 hours and has been exposed to 105 degree temperatures outside? It probably was hotter in the delivery truck.
Singulair shipped in mail with 105 degree exposure?
Added 19 Jul 2009:
I have since called the pharmacist. He said do not use the medication. It was shipped overnight and the inside of the box was 100 degrees as it did not arrive until 5pm. My insurance does not allow local pickup of prescriptions. I have to get it through the mail. Now they will not send any more out. I have requested to ship with ice packs but they only did that with the inhalers. It is an Aetna prescription policy. What recourse do I have. This medication is for a child and I just cannot believe this is going on.

Below are the storage conditons that the manufacturers of Singulair recommend. If these conditions are not met the manufacturers can not guarantee safety or efficacy of the drug. I would look at another way of getting your medication.
Proper storage of Singulair Chewable Tablets:
Store at 77 degrees F (25 degrees C). Brief storage at temperatures between 59 and 86 degrees F (15 and 30 degrees C) is permitted. Protect from light and moisture. Store in original packaging until just before use. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Singulair Chewable Tablets out of the reach of children and away from pets.
