I picked up my son's Rx from the store, and forgot to take it out of the car until the next morning when I woke up. It was very cold that night (10-20 degrees Farenheit), but the medicine was not frozen when I took it out of the car. Like the stupid mom I seem to be, I assumed the med would be fine, since it didn't freeze. My son has had 2 seizures in a week (which isn't completely out of the norm). Do I need to throw away that liquid gold, and get some more? Please help, thank you!
