My mother in Australia has been told to keep her tablets in the refrigerator. I have never put mine in.
Does Levothyroxine need to be refrigerated?

They don't need to be. However if it is very hot where she is, it is sensitive to temps over 80 some degrees. So if no air conditioning, it would be smart to keep them in the door of the refrigerator if she can. That is the warmest part of the refrigerator and is where I store insulin and acidophilus.
