Hello
Welcome to the forum. I am one of the moderation team, we all have one or more of the arthritis "hangers on" or look after family with the same.

We do not have a medical background so can't tell you if it is safe to use your medication.

Our helpline team do not work over the weekend so I suggest the following - check with your GP or the pharmacy as they would know if you can use it.

It would be nice if you posted again and told us a little about yourself - what type of arthritis you have.

Look forward to seeing more of your posts.

Best wishes

Chris

Hi,

I'm just a forum member not one of the Helpline team. I, too, would check with a pharmacist but this is what the info leaflet says (Section 5) https://www.medicines.org.uk/emc/files/pil.1987.pdf As it's been kept at too high a temperature, I'd say if in doubt don't use it.

Dear vonnie49

Thank you for your enquiry to Arthritis Care. I can appreciate that this a difficult situation for you. Being away from home it can be challenging to keep your medication at a stable temperature. I know people often use a cool box on journeys, before using a fridge once they've arrived. I wonder if you've tried to get in touch with your rheumatology specialist nurse - as the others have mentioned, this is a situation for medical advice.

Kind regards

Guy

My humira lives in the fridge and is transported with a freezer block in a small cool bag, my meth is stored in a north facing cupboard. I presume the benepali was not in direct sunlight but it is worth checking with a rheumatology professional. Once a fridge failed and the humira was too 'warm' for less than twenty four hours but I was advised not to use it.

I'm going away soon for a week and will not be taking anything due to the heat, the motorhome we will be using has a fridge but I'm not risking anything. DD
