Mini refrigerators

Does anyone know if there is anything our there that can hold a low temperature as I use fostair and this needs to be kept in a fridge. When I go away for a few days it is often difficult to get this stored and it would be useful if there was a min fridge that I could transport the fostair in that was electrically powered. I know that I can use a coolbag with a freezer pack but this will only last one day and then I have to try to freeze the pack again

i was told you only need to store it in a fridge if not using it. i asked asthma nurse about this and she said its only stored by the chemists in a fridge not by me so unsure of this really but i tend to open them straight away so ive no need to store mine in a fridge once opened there either in my bag or coat. maybe if your worried ask can you store it in a cool area of where you will be staying. hope this helps.

I was told fostair only needs to be kept in the fridge until it's started ? Check with your pharmacist . I was prescribed it as a breakthrough reliever med too and asked BECUASE if using it as reliever it would need to be taken around with me , that's when I was told it only needed to be kept in fridge till started

Hi......hubby not told anything about storing his Fostair Nexthaler. .Have just gone through the leaflet and it says nothing about fridges etc.

It says and I quote. "" This medicine does not require any special temperature storage conditions.""

Then it says "" do not store above 25 ° C. "" ..

Maybe hubby has a different product ,. If so apologies for writing this.

Jo.
