How do you store your Creon? After reading the following included with my Creon, I now store it in an insulated lunch container in bottom kitchen cabinet. Before, I was storing it in top kitchen cabinet cabinet. This summer, the temp in our kitchen has reached 90+ degrees. We don't run the AC when we're not home. Wondering now if I'd been taking Creon no longer effective owing to exposure to high temps. Also, I've noticed that my multi-vitamin supplements, Softgels, which I get from maker of Creon, go soft after just a week in my two week individual days of the week pill case. Anyone know if gel caps going soft indicate loss of effectiveness?

'If the medication is exposed to temperatures between 78 and 104 degrees F, throw it away after 30 days. Do not use any Creon that has been exposed to temperatures above 104 degrees F.'
