Thanks Kelly! I thought 18C would be better. Its just i've heard the ideal temperature is 20-25C and anything lower would be too cold? Is this not true? (I am storing Klonopin)

You should always store meds in a dark place and try to keep the temp under 20C, the biggest mistake people make with meds is they store them in the bathroom, that is the wrong thing to do because of humidity. Hope this helps. It was a question I know alot about since I was a pharmacist for years. Lol

Certain medicines have specific storage recommendations depending on how stable the formulation is.
Generally a cool, dry, dark cupboard or drawer is ideal.
Here are the specific storage recommendations for Klonopin...
"Store at 25°C (77°F); excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F)."
