It depends on the medication..Most are away from light and store any antibiotics such as penicillin and clindamycin in a coll dark place. but i am not a doctor or a pharmacist. No! All medications are highly sensative to either cold or heat. When your get your presciption fill out ask for a "print out". This tells you whether to keep the medication from light, put it in the regrigerator or keep it at a certain temperature. Old medications (out-dated) should NEVER be flushed down the toilet, thrown out in the garbage or left around the house where there are small children. Take the pills to your pharmacist (or phone and ask where you can dispose of them.)
