what to do if a child's antibiotic suspension is accidentally left out of the refrigerator

  Parents often ask what to do if a child's antibiotic suspension is accidentally left out of the refrigerator.

  This is a common question since so many of these meds need to be kept in the fridge after they're reconstituted...the right answer depends on the drug.

  Some can be left at room temp for up to 24 hours...Cefzil, Keflex, and Pediazole suspensions.
