... Now, I received my four packets of Tasigna from Accredo in a HUGE box which contains a HUGE styrofoam cooler and lid in which the Tasigna is placed. I find no info that Tasigna must be shipping in this manner. Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks. Amy
Tasigna should be kept at around 77 degrees Farenheit or at a range of 59F-86F. Now that summer is coming and it is getting warmer, especially in a non air controlled delivery truck, it is best to pack it in a cooler to keep it from getting hot. See below from literature:
Tasigna (nilotinib) capsules should be stored at 25°C (77°F); excursions permitted between 15°-30°C (59°-86°F) [see USP Controlled Room Temperature].
