Can storing meds in air conditioning room(cold) damage it or reduce efficacy ?

Not likely that an air conditioned room would affect your meds.....It's more likely that meds stored in extreme heat might degrade.

Most meds remain stable at around 59-77 F,   or 15-25 C........That is the temp range generally regarded as "room temperature".

If the med needs to be refrigerated it should say so on the bottle.

Also, don't store meds in the bathroom medicine cabinet.....High levels of humidity are not good for medication, either.

In summary, meds are best stored in a cool, dark, dry place.....If in doubt, ask your pharmacist..
