Over time, the chemical makeup and potency of medications changes, so its important to review the following guidelines when it comes to consuming medications.

Brooksville, Florida — July 30, 2012

It's important to understand that many medications become ineffective past their expiration date. In fact consuming outdated medications may mean you are taking a pill that is no longer going to help you.

Factors such as cold, heat and moisture can also affect a medication's potency and success in curing the ailment.

Many Americans believe that storing their products in the bathroom medicine cabinet is the best solution primarily because they believe it remains out of a child's reach. Yet according to leading Brooksville-based pharmaceutical company MCR American Pharmaceuticals storing your medications in a medicine cabinet is not always the best idea. Primarily since children can still access the cabinet quite easily and because moisture can negatively affect the medications.

Instead, MCR American Pharmaceuticals recommends you create a childproof area that can be locked and hidden from both children and moisture.

In addition, it's important to keep your medications in the container they come in because the colored prescription bottles reduce the amount of light that reaches the medicine. Furthermore, avoid mixing different pills in one container.

"Keeping your medication in the original container helps insure that you are taking the medication you intend to take and in the right dosage recommended," said owner of MCR American Pharmaceuticals, David Daniel Ambrose.

MCR American Pharmaceuticals offers a variety of tips and suggestions when it comes to consuming medications. The company has been in the pharmaceutical field since 1991 and currently manufactures and sells 12 medication products that aim to relieve the common cold, sinusitis, hay fever, and allergic rhinitis.

The medications include four product families called Congestinex, Maxifed, Maxiphen and Super-Tuss. The Congestinex product family consists of Congestinex, Congestinex C, Congestinex DM and Congestinex PE. Maxifed consists of Maxifed, Maxifed DMX, Maxifed G, and Maxifed DM. Maxiphen consists of Maxiphen and Maxiphen DM. And lastly, the Super-Tuss product family consists of Super-Tuss PE and Super-Tuss PSE.

"I highly recommend listening to MCR American Pharmaceuticals' advice and checking out their diverse products," said a local pharmacist who wished to remain anonymous.
