How do you store your Anticoagulant? Sometimes people use pill boxes or other containers for them. I thought it may be important to note that some can not be put in a pill box or other container. Make sure to ask or read your particular label on it. My anticoagulation clinic from Kaiser warned me not to take the medicine out of original container until I was ready to take it. The inside packet-label also states:
“Storing PRADAXA (Dabigatran)
PRADAXA must be kept dry. To protect it from moisture, PRADAXA comes in either a bottle with a special cap or in a blister pack with each dose sealed separately. When storing PRADAXA, please follow these instructions carefully:
Store PRADAXA at room temperature between 68° F to 77° F (20° C to 25° C). After opening the bottle, use PRADAXA within 4 months. Safely throw away any unused PRADAXA after 4 months.
Keep PRADAXA in the original bottle or blister package to keep it dry (protect the capsules from moisture). Do not put PRADAXA in pill boxes or pill organizers.
Tightly close your bottle of PRADAXA right away after you take your dose.”
