Storage temperature for blood thinners

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have become a little bit more symptomatic of my PEs in the last couple of weeks and have noticed that I am not supposed to store my syringes over 25 degrees. There is nowhere in my house that has been that cool in the last month or 2, however long this heatwave has been going on for. Now I am worried that I am not fully protected. The injections worked really well to start but recently I have been worried about my symptoms. Does the heat make the blood thinner less effective? Should I contact my doctor? Does anyone else have similar issues? I am still bruising badly and when I cut myself it still bleeds a lot, but I am still worried it may make it less effective than I need.

    Moon, if you bleed a lot when you cut yourself and briuse then it seems the injections are still working.

      That is what I thought but I got a bit paranoid it wouldn’t be as strong as I needed so I got a new prescription!

      I know how you feel moon about being paranoid, I have been coughing today and really scaring myself, terrified the clot has returned.

      Well I hope you feel better soon, I take that cold & flu treatment with the added ingredient for my cough. It really helps calm the coughing. I would put the brand name but it always takes ages before they let you post it when you do that. But it is the most common brand beginning with L and it has max all in 1 after the brand name!
