we have mestinon shortage here in Jordan which is a middle east country,so i ordered mestinon from Saudi arabia,the medication delivered to me via bus! so i am afraid that the temperature damaged the effective properties of this medicine!especially that Saudi Arabia has high temperature.
the medication trip was 22 hours,i am not sure if the bus was air conditioned??
What happened to mestinon if it exposed to high temperatures?

Mwstinon Tablets are very hygroscopic which means they readily pick up and retain moisture. Moist Mestinon Tablets may become mottled or discolored or crumble easily. Moisture affects the appearance of Mestinon but it does not alter the effectiveness of the drug.
Do not store Mestinon Tablets in bathrooms or kitchens where there is a higher incidence of moisture in the air.
It has not been reported that Mestinon tabs are temperature sensitive, however please do check it with a doc.
Take care, be well, please.
