Does anyone know if putting amoxicillin capsule within the refrigerator will result in them to become ineffective?

I did this for 2 weeks and now I am wondering if I entail to go spinal column and get another prescription for antibiotics. Will the cold of the refrigerator product them useless. The storing instructions were covered up and I did not see them.

Answer:
It should be ok as long as there's no moisture build up. Check the expiration beforehand taking it. It usually tells you to discard after 14 days. Next time save in a pills cabinet but not inside your bathroom.
Nice to know someone else puts them in the refrigerator lol.. I do too. I do it to hold on to them away from my small children from getting into them. I asked my doctor and he said it wont hurt refrigerating them. my mom keep them up to like 2 months
Do not freez but the fridge is OK.

Keep this medication within the container it came surrounded by, tightly closed, and out of reach of children. Store the capsule and tablets at room temperature and away from excess steam and moisture (not in the bathroom). Throw away any medication explicitly outdated or no longer needed. The liquid medication preferably should be kept surrounded by the refrigerator, but it may be stored at room temperature. Throw away any unused medication after 14 days. Do not freeze. Talk to your pharmacist just about the proper disposal of your medication.
Check on the internet for amoxicillin. I would guess it's effectiveness is not adversely artificial by refrigeration; most instructions that I have see state to store at room temperature or lower and avoid sun.
usually capsule are made of gelatin or some polymer that softens only at hot conditions. as such i dont have an idea that in cold conditions anything should appear + it is a broad spectrum antibiotic it self, so no harm.
Keeping them within refrigerator won't affect the potency. In fact keeping amoxicillin surrounded by a temperature below 20 degree celsius is more preferrable, keeping it tighly closed and away from any moisture. Freezing should be avoided though. Be sure to check the expiry date.
The pink liquid amoxicillin that children appear to live on is supposed to be refrigerated. The capsule are at the lower end of the recommended warmth range surrounded by the frdge. You're in appropriate shape.
