... wrap and NO ICE PACK. Our temperature is ranging from 84-86 degrees. Are my patches any good???
According to the literature, this is a bit warm. It should be stored at room temp no higher than 77 degrees F. See below copied from literature (you might want to copy and mail to your mail order pharmacy with a letter of complaint):
Prior to dispensing to the patient, store refrigerated 2-8ºC (36-46ºF). After dispensing to the patient, CombiPatch can be stored at room temperature below 25ºC (77ºF) for up to six months. For the Pharmacist: When CombiPatch is dispensed to the patient, place an expiration date on the label. The date should not exceed either six months from the date of sale or the expiration date, whichever comes first.
Store the systems in the sealed foil pouch.
Do not store the system in areas where extreme temperatures can occur.
Keep this and all medicines out of the reach of children.
