Of the 189 medications listed in AHFS Drug Information 2006 for storage in a refrigerator,[9] 89 were present in our pharmacy department's refrigerator and were included in this review. The information for 34 of these medications (38%) was obtained from the official prescribing information. A total of 44 manufacturers were contacted and asked to provide the relevant information for the remaining 55 medications (62%). Since 6 manufacturers were unable to provide information for 10 medications, information was compiled and tabulated for 79 medications ( Table 1 ).
